It's Awful

I know when I look through my magazines, I ALWAYS feel horrible about myself afterward. I see these models with perfect features, perfect skin, who are always so skinny and are the "ideal" for what we should look like. I go look in the mirror, and I see a 5'1 girl who is not anywhere near what is in the magazine and it has taken a serious toll on my self-esteem. Not only does it make me feel inadequate to others, but to how boys think of me. I think edited pictures to make these people look "perfect" is wrong, and deeply impacts how we see ourselves. It isn't fair we have to worry about looking a certain way when only a small percentage of people do or ever will look that way.

Diamonds, gold, siler, rubies,you are worth more than SEX that guys go after girls for! God loves you! Really adores you! He promises to hold you! To be with you and HE not only THINKS, but KNOWS that you are BEA-U-TI-FUL!!!!!!!!! If God loves you and I, than we should trust His judgement of beautiful. Not OUR'S,not a boys, not a friends,not a family member's. He made you, and I known that EVERYTHING He made is beautiful, so why wouldn't you be?? He loves you- just the way you are, I love our God! :)

Hi just want to say stop letting the touched up photos in a magazine be your total definition of beauty!

What is beauty? Who are you? How tall is beauty? How tall are you? You define it! You appreciate the contributions you make in that definition of bewauty! So what if you don't see "yourself" in the magazines, that just demonstrates their limited scope of understanding.

Look in the mirror. Turn around slowly. Put a smile on your face. Your hands on your hips. And tell that reflection, "ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!"

Be blessed and you go girl!
