Be You Be Beautiful

Being you and being beautiful doesn’t seem possible for us teenagers right ? At least for me some days I don’t feel so .

All of us are different . Some of us are tall , short , fair , dark , skinny and curvy. These differences are supposed to be embraced but in today’s world where the ideal , perfect girl is supposed to be tall , fair and skinny while an ideal guy has to be tall , fair and muscular it’s sadly not possible. But not everyone can be that way right ? If everyone is the same then whats the point ? Only if the society understood that. Only if they knew how much it affected us when they comment on our looks. They think it’s easy but its not . Deep down no one really wants to be dark , short or on the heavier side and when they comment on it , it shatters us . It increases our insecurities even more , makes it even harder for us to consider ourselves beautiful specially when such comments are from family or friends. I had my fair share of all this until earlier this year . I’m pretty short and I cannot do anything but accept it right ? Even though I’m accepting myself this way now , embracing it , it wasn’t easy getting here ย but I’m not saying it’s impossible . I know how hard it can be. Earlier this year i went on vacation to India to meet my relatives and the first thing they told me even before a hi was oh my god your so short , my kid is taller than you who is younger . That came from almost everyone . I acted like I was okay with it and I din’t care but only I know how much it hurt me . I hated looking at myself in the mirror and being okay with my height . Their comments brought down my confidence level . I’m still not over their comments but I ensure you one day I will .
Friends , beauty is not just skin deep . It’s more than that cause an ugly heart can make a pretty face ugly. Yes , I understand that it’s not easy accepting yourself , or considering yourself beautiful when every other person makes fun of you ย but it’s not impossible . Being attractive or beautiful is more about your personality than looks .
To feel more confident about yourself just compliment yourself just once in a day and trust me that can change your whole perspective regarding you ๐Ÿ™‚
And to concludeย ย be you cause nothing is more beautiful than being yourself and being comfortable in your own skin. Learn to accept yourself . Once you do so , others comments can do nothing to you ๐Ÿ™‚ Love yourself and everyone around you will start loving you ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep smiling and stay strong people ๐Ÿ™‚
