Making the Mark
We live in a world where many people feel that they have the right to set standards. By this I refer to standards that people must meet in order to be good enough or beautiful enough. Why are people able to do this? No one has a right to say what beautiful is because we are all beautiful in our own ways.
Most stores that you visit host racks of magazines. The covers show pictures of too skinny models and whatnot. Girls look at that and think that they need to be that way. They need to be super skinny in order to be beautiful. This is totally not true! Girls that are too skinny actually lack a nice figure because they are all skin and bones.
Girls also say that if they just lose some weight their curves will show more. This isn’t true whatsoever. If an already slender woman decides to lose more weight, she will look unhealthy and not at all attractive. DON’T tell yourself to lose weight if you are already skinny.
I get how woman want to stay fit and active. I’m one of those people! It is important to eat healthy foods and exercise a certain amount each day. Doing this can make women feel more confident about their bodies’.
When you look in the mirror start to think positively about yourself. Instead of hurting yourself by thinking negatively you can find things that you like about yourself. Maybe you like your eyes or your figure. Whatever part of yourself you love, focus on it. Stop trying to find your flaws because we all have them.
The real message is this: don’t follow the standards of other people. They don’t know you! Make your own standards and start telling yourself that you are beautiful. Live a healthy lifestyle; it helps to boost self-esteem. Be beautiful on the inside because if you are, you will definitely be more beautiful on the outside!
