Comfortable In Your Own Skin

You have to be comfortable in your own skin to be happy. If you look in the mirror, and say 'Wow, I hate myself and the way I look,' you will never be happy. You have to look at yourself and be like "Damn I'm cute." Boy or girl. You have to be able to see yourself as the person you are and love that person. If you are one of those people who look in the mirror with negativity, change yourself. Go to the gym if you feel too big, eat more if you feel too thin. Cut your hair. Change the color or your hair. Actually smile for a change.

Some times you are only looking at the person people have made you believe you are. Maybe you are only seeing what people have said. That your nose is too big, your smile is crooked, your fat, that they can see your ribs sticking out, that you're ugly. Ignore those people. Ignore all they say because more times than not, they are just jealous. They want to be like you so they tear you down so they can feel better about themselves.

You have to walk around like you think you're it. Whatever IT is for you, that's what you are. BEAUTIFUL, HANDSOME, GOREOUS. A flower in a field of weeds. ONE OF A KIND.

Today, I looked at myself for one of the rare occasions I think I look pretty, and finally could tell myself that I am comfortable in my own skin. I don't care what those people say as I walk by in my sweats, or my hair a mess with no make up. I think I am beautiful. Someone can tell you every day they think you are beautiful, but until you believe it when you say it to yourself, their words will mean nothing to you.

So forget the haters. Look at yourself and yell to the world that you love yourself. Yell from the roof of a building. "I AM BEAUTIFUL!" " I AM COMFORTABLE IN MY BODY!" People will notice you if you show confidence in yourself. Walk by with a look on your face that says, 'Take a picture. It'll last longer. I know I'm pretty." Guys and girls alike love confidence. So show the world that you love yourself. IF you do, they will too.

Have a fantastic day everyone! YOU. ARE. BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3
