This is something we are not told often by our friends, our families, our neighbours, our colleagues or even……ourselves.
It is something that is very very important,
Yet, we are NOT told often……..
We do not tell OURSELVES we are beautiful.
We do NOT hear it enough.
Instead, we hear and focus on all the negative comments,
“You’re too skinny” “you’re fat” “Your thighs are too big” “your skin is too dark”
We cling onto all these nasty comments, that now “we” begin to believe it.
We start living these comments, until we no longer feel good about ourselves,
Until our self-worth heads down the drain and our self-esteem jumps out the window.
O, how happy would that make our enemies!
Do you ever consider how harmful it is to not tell yourself you are beautiful? To define oneself as beautiful..
“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows.” Audrey Hepburn
We are so busy focusing on outer beauty, beauty which is short-lived, that we completely neglect our inner beauty, beauty which is long-lasting,
Inner beauty is important for growth, yet many of us neglect it; we are heedless of this. The same way planting a seed requires nurturing and observing, to help it grow and stand strong, is the same way us, as humans require constant nurturing and attention; to allow us to become the best that we can.
In order to focus on this inner beauty, then you need to start by planting and nurturing the seed:
Step 1: You need to start off by telling yourself every day, maybe more than once a day, how beautiful you are…I know it may sound weird or even uncomfortable but, it is vital for growth growth. Once you start nurturing this seed, will you then begin to see the outer beauty.
Step 2: Keep away from toxic individuals. It may be something that is obvious. But sometimes even those closest to us, are often the most harmful. Those individuals who constantly highlight your shortcomings and remind you of your imperfections are the ones to avoid. STAY AWAY.
I want you to tell yourself:
Upon rising in the morning, tell yourself,
Upon heading to the bathroom, tell yourself
Upon having breakfast, tell yourself
when you’re getting dressed for the day, tell yourself
when you step out of your home tell yourself
when you see an enemy tell yourself,
Why? Because you’re beautiful and it deserves to be highlighted.
You deserve to be happy!
Stay beautiful and beboldhideless
