Do you think you are beautiful?
Do you feel comfortable in your skin?
Do you feel that those hair care commercials, beauty brands etc talk to you in particular, when they tell you how you can be a better (read prettier) version of yourself?
Look in the mirror today and tell yourself what you really think and feel of your body. What do you see? A pretty woman or someone who needs improvement?
Being beautiful is feeling beautiful. The world will always tell you that you are two sizes too big or a size too small, that your hair are nice but too sparse, that your skin is unblemished but the color is not at par, that you might be fair but you have an ugly scar. You will probably be compared to others, put down, and told how to look like someone else. Why though? Why would anyone want to be like someone else, when they can be their own unique self? Whatever size and shape your body is, curly or straight your hair are, dusky or fair skin is, none of these physical attributes decide who you are and what you are capable of. So stop those right in their tracks, who tell you that you are a sidekick and not a princess.
Do yourself a favour and when you go back home today, go back to that mirror and tell yourself –
“I’m beautiful. I’m a star. I’m a princess. I’m perfection and I don’t seek acceptance. ”
You may not be a Cinderella, but you can be a Jasmine!
Don’t tie your self-esteem to your beauty regime.
Wear what you truly like.
Don’t be dismayed if it’s not meant for your “body type”.
Flash that red smile and wear those high heels.
Don’t wait for a special occasion and tell yourself how it feels.
Do what you want to, whether it’s putting makeup or going out with bed-hair, not what the faceless world wants you to. World will repeat what you genuinely feel about yourself. Pump up your confidence and announce to the world that you are you and wouldn’t care to be another. You are born beautiful. Believe in yourself and you will see that the world sees it too!
