Since there are some girls that are not confident about themselves and their own bodies, it is important to highlight the need to be self-confident and loving yourself as it is. Sometimes we might be very tough on ourselves by entailing a lot of self-criticisms, like “No I’m not beautiful and I have so many fats or I’m too skinny”. We keep measuring our weight and sometimes using a lot of makeup in order to cover flaws on our faces. It’s okay to put makeup but don’t use it for the purpose of being more beautiful, just keep in mind that you will remain beautiful with or without makeup.
We have different body shapes that make us unique, and believe it or not, once you reach the level of loving your features and your body with its stretches and curves, you will achieve the level of inner peace. Keep loving yourself and stop comparing yourself to others, you are beautiful the way you are.
