No matter how you found this blog, whether through google, social media, etc. we are so glad you did.
Because there are times when being a girl is the most amazing blessing from God.
Then there are times when you feel like being a girl sucks!
I know that may sound a little harsh but it’s true. You scroll through your newsfeed on social media and see how everyone’s life “seems” better than yours. Then, you look in the mirror and see all of your birthmarks, stretch marks, pimples, moles, and any other flaw you find with yourself. All of those things add up and that’s why we are always known to be insecure.
I will say it on behalf of all of us, being a girl is hard.We have to shave, do our hair, paint our nails, buy the cutest clothes, and you can’t forget about the perfume. It’s a lot of things we do to ensure that we are our best. But what about when you feel that your best still isn’t good enough? It could come from the other kids at school, popularity, social media, or even a guy you like. That’s why I created this blog.
A lot of people may think that just because my sister and I have this nonprofit, we are confident girls who walk around with our heads held high. In reality, we don’t, we look in the mirror and point out our flaws as well. We complain about how we wish we looked like the people we see on television and on social media. It’s something that we all experience and it’s normal.
One thing that contributes to our (yes I’m purposefully saying our) insecurities is staying on social media all the time. Of course, other people will make it seem like their lives are going awesome even if it’s not. Another thing is all of the movies we see where the girl always finds love and it gives her true happiness at the end. It’s a lot of things that combine to bring our confidence down to the ground honey.
I’m not going to give you a why you shouldn’t compare yourself speech because you are already know it’s not good and it doesn’t do well for your self esteem. On the other hand, I want to encourage you.
You can’t help how you look. That was God’s job to create you with straight hair, kinky hair, freckles, or with a mole right above your eye. He created you exactly how He wanted you to be. There will be times when you will ask God how come He didn’t make you look like the girl you’re looking at. Or if He could have just modified that one thing that would have made you into the perfect girl. I understand. I’ve done that so many times growing up.
I want you to think of a jewel. One that was created by God and grew different shapes, edges, and curves. I want you to imagine someone walking out of a cave with that jewel in hand and just observing every glistening detail in the sunlight. That person stands in awe as they twist it around from hand to hand examining everything about it. They love it so much they take it home and put on their shelf for their family members and visitors to see. Every time that person looks at that jewel, they thank God everyday that they found it.
I want you to think of that jewel being you. You are that jewel that is so beautiful.
Every detail about you is amazing. Every mole, curve, and curly hair on your head is what makes you into a one of a kind jewel. God acknowledges His creation and one of his most prize possessions is you.
You are amazing! For that purpose, you like look you. Be proud of who you are. Be proud of your personality. Be proud of your smile. If you don’t learn to appreciate it, then no one else will. You are beautiful! Tell yourself that more often. Write it down on a poster in your room. Think those thoughts more often throughout the day. You will be amazed how positive thinking will enhance how you view yourself.
