I get it.
I know it’s hard feeling beautiful sometimes.
For many of us, genuine self confidence is a major hurdle.
‘Because I’m not beautiful …’
Says your mind.
Your mind is lying.
You can’t win the game it’s playing.
You’ve been chasing after perfection as if it’s obtainable.
But your eyes are lying too.
In this messy world with these cookie cutter goals…
The girl you see with what looks like everything, is living with a broken mirror as well.
She has her self imposed imperfections on display, yet none can see except the broken eyes that feel this way.
We are our own toughest critics.
Nobody sees us like we see ourselves.
Many of us are too busy shredding our own insecurities to have time to nitpick the invisible “flaws” in others.
I know that when you go out and feel like a spotlight is on you, like everyone is staring at your “flaws”, it’s hard to believe it.
But the streets are not filled with these materialistic beliefs that we are hammering into ourselves.
Goes your mind.
Maybe you don’t feel beautiful because a toxic relationship stripped you of every sense of your worth.
As much as you try to remember who you really are, those pieces feel as if they are fading away.
Maybe a hurtful comment has branded truth into your negative feelings about yourself.
‘It must be true because someone else said it.’
So, SO false.
There is truth in the statement, “you will never be happy if your happiness is somewhere else”.
We feed these inner voices that are constantly compromising our happiness.
What if we really didn’t “need to just lose five pounds”, or “get a littleeee bit of Botox”, and we could just love ourselves like God loves us, simply?
What if instead of drowning in a pool of everything we hate about ourselves, we worked towards silencing those thoughts with the things we like about ourselves?
What if we tried “nurturing ourselves beautiful” instead of continuously failing at “hating ourselves pretty”?
Such a profound display of self love could be the key that unlocks your prison.
Every day is as beautiful as you choose to make it.
While day dreaming of your perfect physique may seem innocent enough, it’s not a healthy place to linger.
The fact is that you are not “that girl you’d die look like”.
You aren’t “shorter”, “blue eyed”, “skinny”.
By dwelling on the idea that your happiness lives in these things, you are setting yourself up for a long life of discontent.
What if the secret to feeling beautiful was way more obtainable than you thought…?
I know that telling you to love the person that you hate is the last thing you probably want to hear.
And that is the problem.
The truth is my dear, you are so beautiful.
You don’t need to change yourself, you need to change your mirror.
