Have you ever walked in a room and thought that every girl in there was better looking than you?
You start looking around and wishing you had that girl’s perfectly straight hair, her designer clothes, or her skinny figure. Your self-esteem suddenly drops by the second. After all this comparing, you start to resent the girl that you think is prettier than you. I don’t know if that happens to you, but it sure is something I struggle with. I constantly feel the need to compare myself to every girl I see. It’s human nature for girls not to be fully satisfied with the way they look. There’s that ONE thing we want to change about our appearance. The media is constantly telling us what we should look like and that the only way we can be considered “beautiful” is if we look like the celebrities. So how do we escape all this bitterness towards ourselves and our self-esteem? Accept how you were made. I know it’s easier said than done…but if it’s something you really want, then you need a drastic change in mindset. YOU are your biggest critic. Start by complimenting yourself when you look in the mirror. Focus on the good things about you. Find out WHAT’S threatening you. Be realistic, instead of being jealous of someone, look at them and smile knowing that you are blessed too.
