I used to always care about how I looked. And like so many other girls, I still do…just not as much as I used to. I used to always (and I mean always) wear makeup. Then one day when I was getting ready for school, I didn’t have time to do that. So I went to school without my usual makeup caked face and almost all my friends said that I looked “really pretty!” From that day on, I stopped wearing makeup except for a little mascara. Doing this made me really appreciate and respect myself more. I came to like more things about myself like my smile and eyes. Now I feel like I’m being the person God wants me to be without covering up the face He created perfect in His image.
