You are more beautiful than you think.
This is what I am left with after watching this video from Dove. This couldn’t be truer, and I am pretty sure women everywhere can relate to this powerful message. In my case, the video hit close to home, as I came across an old diary from high school when I was organizing my things. In one entry, I expressed how miserable I was because of how I looked, and I even drew a horrible sketch of myself. It is something to laugh about now, but looking back I remember how self-conscious I was because of my awkward, skinny physique. I hid in baggy clothes and was mortified when I found a pimple or two on my face. It was all part of growing up, but for some of us who never got over those “ugly days”, it is time for a change. We ought to listen to how our loved ones describe us–in their eyes we are beautiful. What little insecurities we have about our forehead, nose, chin, cheeks or skin is not as bad as how we see it. We are more beautiful than we think, and it is time we start believing it.
