I believe that everybody has been bullied at least once in their lifetime.
Or made fun of.
I was watching America's Next Top Model last night and it had a great message.
I know what you're thinking, I was shocked too.
But it made me cry!
There were little 7 year old girls saying things that make them feel like they're not beautiful.
One of the girls on the show started to cry and tell the little girl "you're so beautiful!"
It was so touching!
It inspired me for a post.
What makes me feel like I'm not beautiful: My teeth. When I get clusters of pimples on my face. I was made fun of growing up for my acne and my weight. I had always had a chubby face and figure and never felt good enough. I had a best friend who was very little and I always felt all the boys I was crushing liked her more than me.
What makes me feel beautiful: When I see the sun set and all the amazing colors that can bring your world to life and you just think how lucky you are to be alive. Singing in the shower. When the wind blows through my hair. When my husband and I laugh together. Feeling love from my husband, family and friends. Being in touch with my emotions. I always wanted to build a wall so that I couldn't get hurt anymore but I realized emotions are good! And I feel horribly for those who don't let themselves experience them.
Just can't help but quote the Miss Xtina Herself, "You are beautiful, no matter what they say, words can't bring you down"

I would love to hear things that make you feel unpretty.
And most importantly, things that make you feel beautiful.
flaws we see in ourselves do not define us. we are all unique. and that's what makes us beautiful.
