Inhale Confidence, Exhale Doubt
Inhale high self esteem, exhale low self esteem. Look in the mirror and say, “I am beautiful and unique. God made me different because I am.” Inhale loving who you are and how God made you; exhale the doubt that you are not pretty enough. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!
People use to tell me all the time, “smile you’re beautiful.” But that’s not how I felt inside. I thought I was ugly and too skinny. I have scares on my legs from being burnt and I have vitiligo (which causes you to lose the pigment (color) in your skin) on my face. I was teased because of my scars. I took in all that negative energy and that really put my self esteem at a low. One day this guy comes up to me and tells me that I encouraged him because I wasn’t afraid to show the scares on my legs. He also had burns on his legs and was ashamed to show them. For me, after that my confidence went up because I was brave enough to show my flaws and scars. I encouraged someone else.
You were made different for a reason, stay who you are. You don’t need all that make up and plastic stuff and you don’t have to wish that you were shaped like this girl or look like that girl. You never know who you’re encouraging when you show your flaws. There is a reason why we all are made different. So the next time you’re thinking you aren’t pretty or your confidence is a little low put on your invisible confidence crown look in the mirror and tell yourself, “I’m beautifully made.” Then inhale confidence, exhale doubt.
