One of the hardest things in the world to admit is…. I don’t feel that great about myself
As a young girl, I’ll never forget the jokes about my forehead or how i looked. My classmates’ laughter caused me pain that would take me years to overcome. I remember the long bang on my face to hide my forehead and not wearing shorts because they said I had legs like a man. I can recall having my looks being rated by my classmates on a scale of 1 – 10 on how cute I was. I remember them rating me ZERO! Even a -10 and -50 . I can still see that paper being passed around the room as they laughed at me. I hated going to class I felt ugly and alone. When I would pass a mirror, I remember feeling hesitant to even look at my own reflection. Because what I saw was all the negative things that were said about me.
It wasn’t until I was a young adult and experimenting in makeup where I started to realize I wasn’t such an ugly duckling. It amazes me how we live with ourselves all our life, yet we can’t truly love and embrace, or even realize our beauty, and the other things that add to or make our character unique.
I can definitely relate to the girls and the women who experience a lack of self confidence, or who may doubt their beauty. Me knowing that negative feeling personally, I pray I can get rid of that feeling in as many woman as I can!
