I use to think that I shouldn't try and look as good as I can because I knew I would never look as good as some people.

This was a while ago mind you. But as corny as it sounds I have always relied on my inner beauty.

It's funny because you can meet someone, and you get a first impression of them. But I have found that as you get to know someone, there appearance changes in relation to how they are as a person. How they are in there heart (if they let you see it). And I have seen people transform in front of me! It's kinda coo-key.

~ I believe that if you love yourself you have nothing to fear.

Besides there's no use fretting over, "oh, my ears are too big"

or "oh, I hate my freckles".

It's like asking why a bird has a beak and not a nice soft nose...

if you catch my drift ;)

keep smiling.

That's about where I am right now. I still have problem seeing myself as any kind of beautiful. I'm just happy somebody has found a way out of that kind of thinking.

Oh wow, I used to think the same way!

I felt that I couldnt 'compete' with all the 'beautiful' people, so I deliberately made myself look as though you wouldnt want to talk to me.

Its taken me till now to figure out that the most beautiful person can also be the most ugliest on the inside.
