Someone asked me this question today and was quite taken aback.
I’ve never once thought that I fit the worldly standard definition of pretty but I don’t think that I am ugly too (arrrgh, i don’t even know how an ugly person looks like).
Oh, of course, my answer was an undoubtedly no. What was I supposed to say?
Honestly, I don’t think I look as close as Kate Moss or those models who are on the covers of every magazine. Admit it, this world has a definition of how beauty looks like. It’s sad but it’s true. And probably, one can say that the amount of likes you get from a portrait of you on Facebook or Instagram says a lot of how people perceived you. More likes is tantamount to being pretty.
Confidence is the key.
Huh, easier said than done, right? I don’t know about you but the only time that I look at myself in front of the mirror is when I put on my make-up. It’s kind of scary to look at your own reflection when you know all your imperfections. Ridiculous, isn’t it?
But, have you ever saw yourself laughing? How your face lights up reading the book that you love? Listening to music that you enjoy? Adoring the sky and the stars? No. And as they say, happy girls are the prettiest, so, don’t let your reflection tell you otherwise.
Still, I can’t proudly say that “I am beautiful”. It’s hard. Really haaaaard.
Anyway, we are all beautiful in our own way. Never forget that.
