Wishful Thinking..

by Taylor


If I can change something about my body,it will be a couple of things. First my skin complexion. Besides, my father, who I barely see, is light or brown skin. I always feel like the outcast. I wish I can change my teeth. They are straight but not pretty like my twin sister.I wish I didn't have frequent bumps on my face. I wish I didn't have eczema. I wish I had pretty feet and hands. I wish my body would not sweat as much.I wish that a boy can truly like me for who I am and not just want to have sex with me. I wish that I could see my inner beauty. I wish my family and friends can stop telling me I'm beautiful because I know that I'm ugly. They don't tell my sister that. I wish I could be that pretty girl for once. I'm tired of crying. This is crazy I never talked about this to anyone, but I'm posting it on here.

Lies
by: Alison

Taylor,

Thank you for being honest. There are so many girls who think the same way about themselves. My guess is that you wouldn't think these things about other girls, so why think them about yourself? One reason is that, there is an enemy who wants to destroy us. He tells us nothing but lies about ourselves. And those are the types of things you are believing about yourself. Guess what? They are untrue! God wants to reveal to you the TRUTH about yourself! He loves you deeply, and you know what else? HE is the one who created YOU, perfectly, without any flaws or mistakes, according to Him. The problem is that we don't always choose to see ourselves the way He sees us, but choose to believe according to the lies. I encourage you to read His Word (the Bible) and find out what else He thinks about you and intends for you!

I'm a mentor, and if you have any questions or just need someone to talk to, feel free to let me know.

True beauty
by: Linda

Hey Taylor,

First of all **hugs** (and more hugs)
God has blessed you so much! You are truly beautiful on the outside, and I'm so glad you want to find your true beauty on the inside as well.

It's really easy to get caught up on the physical aspects of beauty and miss the fact that there is a light that shines from within that can be so great and so magnetic that it will change the whole world around you.

God made us all beautifully and wonderfully and it makes me sad that you aren't feeling confident about yourself. Your body is your temple, the place where He can dwell on the inside of you if you allow Him. So it is extremely important to learn to love who you are and everything he made you.

Whenever you are feeling down and not very self confident, look in the mirror and remind yourself that everything, Every single detail about you, from your skin color ((which is the same as mine and absolutely gorgeous btw :) ) to your hair, to your body, etc etc was specifically designed. Specifically chosen to make you everything you are and everything that your going to be so that God can delight and find is happiness in you!
Proverbs 31:30 says:Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised!

Focus on Loving God and receiving His love for you, and as He fills your heart Your true beauty, the fabulous essence of who you are will be unmistakable as His love and light shine through you!

If you ever need and ear or shoulder feel free to let me know.
