You’re Beautiful: Let’s Talk About Beauty, Self Love and Confidence

“I’m learning to love myself! Not just the person on the outside but the person within. It’s the hardest thing I have ever done but it’s WORTH IT!”

It really breaks my heart to know that there are people out there who don’t think that they’re beautiful. Who doesn’t see that they are good enough. Who don’t know their worth. For whatever reason someone or something has dimmed your light that shines from within. I am writing this blog in hopes that it will help you. I hope that you will learn how to stop focusing on the negatives in your life and let the positives shine through. That what makes you beautiful is not whats on the outside but the person on the inside. Learn how to walk with confidence and love your self more each day. 
For this blog I wanted to do something different. I wanted to incorporate others thoughts because everyone has struggled with their image at a point in time. So, I sent different questions to some friends and below is their responses.

Question: What advice would you give to a young girl or adult who is struggling with self love? Self esteem and confidence?

Question: What does confidence mean to you? How would you define it?
Response: Confidence is a mindset. You must believe and KNOW who you are in God. When you understand who you are, you’ll walk with your head held high. Also, believe in your abilities and you’ll do the unthinkable.

Question: What is one specific thing you do that helps you to like yourself and your life?

Question:

Question: Who is someone who has compromised your confidence? What did that person do or say to bring you down and cause you to doubt yourself? Was it a family member, the media etc.? How did you overcome what was said or done?beautiful-young-strong-powerful-african-american-girl-winking-eye-showing-her-muscles-blue-shirt-african-american-strong-114652819

Response: My aunt definitely brought down my confidence and continues to bring down my confidence. She criticizes my life, clothes, my actions etc. It’s so frustrating and sometimes I cry about it. I also struggle with forming my own opinions of myself and I always doubt myself because of that. I still love her though. The way I overcome is trying to reassure myself that I am beautiful despite the criticism and judgement. I’m living my life doing what makes me happy.


Question: What advice would you give to a young girl or adult who is struggling with self love? Self esteem and confidence?
Response: I would tell a young girl to turn off everyone’s outside opinions and don’t take everything people say to heart. Don’t let what they say dictate the way you’re going to live your life. If you fail, cool! Pick yourself up and start over. If you succeed, even better! Just don’t stop. It’s your life to live at the end of the day.

Question: What advice would you give to a young girl or adult who is struggling with self love? Self esteem and confidence?
Response: Ask yourself why do you get up in the morning and do what you have to do? Remind them that they are the most important thing to themselves. Can’t help others if you’re not in a good place with yourself. With self esteem and confidence I would let them know that it’s okay to not feel pretty some days but remember that you’re always beautiful. Self affirmation is really helpful, speak positively about yourself and it’ll actually make you feel better.

Question: What advice would you give to a young girl or adult who is struggling with self love? Self esteem and confidence?
Response: You are blessed, even though you don’t see it yet you ARE! Nobody on this earth is the same and that’s the great thing about it! That girl that you think is so pretty and gets all the attention is struggling with something else! Love who you are regardless of what anyone else says or thinks! They can’t change it and neither can you right? So you have to embrace YOU! Like only you can!

images (9)Question: What does imperfection mean to you? How can you learn to embrace imperfection in your life? 

Response: Imperfection to me means an “imperfect” person lol. A person who has flaws and faults. A person who is not perfect! Everyone has something that they feel is an imperfection in their life. Maybe it is something physical, a trait etc. I have learned to embrace these imperfections because they make me unique and there is no such thing as a perfect person.
Question: What advice would you give to a young girl or adult who is struggling with self love? Self esteem and confidence?
Response: The best love is SELF love!! You were created the way you are for a purpose. God does not make any mistakes. Forget about what others think about you because the only person who opinion matters is YOURS!!

“Self esteem comes from being able to define the world in your own terms and refusing to abide by the judgement of others…”
