    Colbie Caillat Goes All Natural and Asks, “Do You Like You?”…Do You?

    Ladies, there’s nothing wrong with trying to present ourselves in a pleasing way. There’s nothing wrong with dressing nicely, enhancing our natural beauty with a little make-up, or adhering to a fitness regimen to maintain a healthy body. But in our culture, we are often persuaded to change ourselves to fit into a model of perfection. And natural perfection is just unrealistic.

    And so, we wear lots of make-up to cover the flaws, exercise or starve ourselves to be skinny, or we wear revealing clothing so that we are more sexy and appealing to the opposite gender.

    We do all of these things so that others will like us, find us attractive, and make us feel good about ourselves. But do we really feel good about ourselves? I mean, if we have to go to such extremes, how could we even like ourselves? We’re hiding who we are, right?

    The media plays a huge role in promoting this unrealistic standard of perfection. It’s often achieved by photo-shopping what’s real and turning it into a fantasy. And Grammy-winning singer-songwriter, Colbie Caillat agrees.

    In her most recent music video release for her song, “Try,” Caillat reminds that we’re all beautiful, and that we should learn to like ourselves the way we are…naturally.

    Check out the video below and ask yourself if you like you.

    Ladies, what did you think about Caillat’s music video? Do you like you?

    1. I loved this video and shared it immediately after seeing it on Facebook. It has such a great message and Colbie is so lovely and beautiful all around. I do like me, or at least, try very hard to like me. There are days when it is hard, but I think everyone goes through those days. <3

    2. I love the song, the video, and the message. Sometimes I get caught up in the wanting to be popular, and it’s nice to be reminded that I don’t have to try to be liked. I don’t want to have friends who like me because of how I dress or make me act a certain way. I want to be honest with myself and others about who I am.

    3. I absolutely adore this song! The music video just enhances it even more. It reminds me about the Dove True Beauty commercial of how you see yourself and how others see you. But overall, major kudos to Colbie.

    4. I saw this a few weeks ago and seriously… I LOVE THIS!!!
      There is a standard that should be broken in society, and this gives people everywhere a chance to say that they are beautiful no matter what.
      Colbie Caillat has done such a great job with this!

    5. I LOVE this song! I have had many friends who have always been bothered by their height, weight, looks…(etc.) and they always lost sight of who they were in God’s eyes! I would spend everyday trying to encourage them and tell them that they are beautiful, and remind them of how God sees them but it was never enough. After I heard this song the first time, I downloaded it to my Ipod, so I would always be reminded of who I am, that I am beautiful! I hope every girl gets a chance to hear this song too!
