Lately I've noticed myself comparing and picking away at every little problem that I don't like about"If I do this diet I will have a flat stomach,""If I could get braces my teeth would be straighter,""If I only had "good" hair I would look better." I've always had a hard time loving who I was and still, quite a challenge. I want to be able to teach others about the importance of loving themselves but yet I have these low points sometimes that simply get in the way of the bigger picture. We all have our low points at times...don't we?
myself. From the coarseness of my hair, to the crookedness of my teeth, to the thickness of my body. I look at myself in the mirror trying to figure out what I can change.
|There is only one YOU,|
you cant compare yourself to someone
who is not completely identical to you!
That is why it is important for people...real people like me, like you to go out and tell the world that, "You know what I'm not perfect, I'm not the prettiest, and I'm not the most skinniest or bootylicious girl in the world....I'm just me and I'm happy with just that!"
We are not supposed to be a duplicate copies of Beyonce, Kim K, Cameron Diaz, or whoever else you are comparing yourself too! We were created to be just the way we are (crooked teeth and all). God looked at you when he was done creating you, smiled, and said "This is my masterpiece, she is perfect."
THE WORD SPEAKS THE TRUTH!
Say this when you start to compare yourself to others:
"I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful,
I know that full well."
