Sometimes Its Silly, I Guess

I feel beautiful when I’m by myself, regardless of what I am wearing. be it slacks and flats or dress/skirt, nylons and heels.

But I really want to feel beautiful in front of other people too!

I may not be pretty by today's standards but I feel I am beautiful on the inside.

I want to have others acknowledge that I am beautiful regardless of my state of dress.

Just acknowledging the little things would be more than enough.


I look in the mirror every day and see a 'pretty' woman ... yet I know that others see something totally different.

I can't help but wonder that if others paid more attention to my feelings, actions and even thoughts they would see.

Then maybe even saying something nice occassionally would move me forward.

I feel pretty, beautiful and even sexy because I know who I am.

My body doesn't reflect that but I strive in many and small ways to bring that feeling to my outer appearance.

Soft, smooth skin. Dressed nicely and appropriately (with soft, warm colors), losing weight and exercising for a better shape.

I know in my mind that I and beautiful and sexy ... the one person who always told me I was beautiful, my Mother, is now gone.

Now I need someone else to tell me the same.

I know that I can't see you but from what you have written you sound like you are a beautiful person inside and no matter if anyone tells you that you are beautiful you have to believe it. Be your own safe person and run to yourself for love and admiration then you will attract others to you that will appreciate you too. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. My mother has always been the one I go to for advice and encouragement when I am feeling down and unpretty. Always remember her spirit and keep her words of love for you in your heart. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
