    Sadie Robertson Has a Confession to Share and a Message to “Live Original”

    Ladies, in a world that focuses so much on beauty, we often compare ourselves to those who supposedly emulate beauty or perfection in our own eyes. And when we’re not comparing ourselves to a famous person, we’re comparing ourselves to someone closer to us, such as a friend or family member. But ladies, did you know that even our role model for perfection is flawed?

    No one is perfect. We’re not supposed to be. So when we set ourselves up for perfection, we’re going to fail. When we fail the test—when we’re not as thin or pretty or tall as this supposedly perfect person—we feel frustrated.

    In today’s Caught Being Godly, I want to share a clip from Sadie Robertson of the Duck Dynasty Robertson clan. Surprisingly, she too struggles with her self-worth and physical beauty. She too has put together a false image of how she should be and compared herself to others. And she wants to share that testimony with you.

    Check out her story and share your thoughts in the comments below.

    Ladies, there’s really no standard for perfection, because perfection doesn’t exist in anyone. Only Jesus was perfect and He was God. So trying to be something impossible is only damaging to our confidence and self-esteem. Now this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t strive to be the best we can be individually. However, our focus shouldn’t be on our looks, but rather on our hearts.

    Because, ultimately, true beauty is only achieved from the inside out.

    Ladies, do you “live original”?

    1. watching this video was exactly what i needed to hear, for years now I’ve been comparing myself to other people, and wishing i was the way they are, or that i was skinnier or taller, my friends have tried telling me the same things that Sadie said, but it would never get through to me, until now, seeing this video has made me realize that i don’t need make up to be beautiful, that it doesn’t matter what size clothes i am, or how tall i am, God made me perfect, the way i am. and until i’m contempt with that, i can never really change how i view anything

    2. I really struggle with playing the “comparison game.” My entire life I have… Very recently, God has gotten a hold of me and reminded me that I AM worthy of Him and His love… But I could never put this new lifestyle into words. Sadie did that for me, and I want to thank her for that. I will forever #liveoriginally 🙂

    3. She is such a great role model for girls and boys and really everybody, like I wish there were more people like her in the public eye because if more people were to be public and outspoken about there faith and really cared about making a difference in young peoples life then others would feel more comfortable expressing how they feel as well and not feeling like they have to be “perfect” all the time.

    4. In the past, I have struggled with jealousy and comparing myself with others. Thankfully, the Lord has set me free from this. This can happen to you, too. All I had to do was ask Him to take away this struggle and find things that I like about myself. This has definitely helped. I will always remember how God has helped me. I seldom get tempted to compare myself to others, but when I do, I remember that I don’t want to go back to this lifestyle, and I try to think about other things.
