Appearance Isn’t Everything

Posted on: March 22, 2010

                              
               One of the hot spots when it comes to girls
               and self-esteem is the entire world of beauty,
               body, fashion, and style.
              
               Eventually, you will all have to negotiate your
               own way through this minefield of manipulation
               and negativity. And this won’t always be easy
               either.
              
               One real important way of doing this is to
               love yourself unconditionally at all times. Even if
               you don’t look like the latest model on the
               newest Girls’ Life magazine, it is important that
               you accept yourself as you are without any
               conditions.
              
               Here is an example of what I mean. Many
               girls believe that they would accept themselves
               even more if they were ten or fifteen pounds
               slimmer. But do you really HAVE TO BE TEN
               POUNDS SLIMMER TO LOVE YOURSELF
               UNCONDITIONALLY?
              
               If you love yourself unconditionally, you will
               realize that ten pounds shouldn’t undermine
               your self-esteem. Instead, you should accept
               yourself unconditionally and know in your heart
               that you are worthy of praise and love even
               though you have a few curves.
              
               So, the next time you look in the mirror, say
               nice things about yourself. Think of five things
               that you really celebrate about yourself, and
               focus on those. This will help you to develop
               your self-esteem and to love your body just as it
               is.
              
               The truth is that bodily appearance isn’t
               everything and it shouldn’t undermine your self-
               esteem. Bodily appearance is only one part of
               you and there is so much more to you than your
               body.
              
               So, celebrate every part of who you are and
               how you look. You are unique and beautiful just
               as you are.
