I never really thought I was a pretty girl growing up. No matter who told me I was pretty, cute, etc. every time I looked in the mirror I never liked what I saw. I didn’t do this to get attention and receive compliments, but for some reason I couldn’t be happy with the way that I looked. After a while of never feeling good enough, I began to wear makeup. I progressively started wearing more and more makeup until one day I noticed that I couldn’t stand to see myself without it. It was then that I knew I had a problem. Recently I’ve come to realize that whether or not I’m considered pretty according to society’s standards isn’t what matters. All that matters is that I was created exactly the way I was meant to be created, and that is what makes me beautiful. God knew exactly what he was doing when he made me. I never want any girl (or guy for that matter) to feel as if they are not beautiful or good enough, so I just wanted to take this moment to tell everyone who reads this that YOU are BEAUTIFUL exactly the way you were CREATED. Don’t ever let anyone tell you otherwise <3
