I never really wear makeup. If I do, it’s usually just lip gloss and some mascara (but it annoys me since it keeps smudging). Before my sophomore year in high school, I always thought I was–not ugly–but just an average looking person. I didn’t appreciate my face and it was rare for me to compliment myself and say, “Hey, you look beautiful!” If I did, I would usually find something to contradict that. I wasn’t really satisfied with my looks. That is why I don’t understand why my guy best friend fell in love with me. I thought I wasn’t worthy of his love since I was just average looking and he had so many other girl friends (as in friends that were girls) that were more beautiful than me. I couldn’t understand why he doesn’t go with them instead. He made me see that beauty was inside..not outside. And for that, I appreciate him. I feel like a princess with him. What’s even better? He’s a Christian! My family is also another asset to me realizing my beauty. Now that I’m 16 and a sophomore in high school, I feel beautiful! There are times when I feel intimidated by other girls, but that doesn’t last long when I know I have God in me!
