We live in an age where the media screams we must look perfect. The more we see beautiful models, the more insecure we become with ourselves. In Leviticus 19:18 (CEV), God tells us in the Ten Commandments, “love others as much as you love yourself,” but do you really love yourself?


How can you love others if you don’t? When you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror at yourself, do you see a beautiful girl, or one who needs to put on her make-up to be beautiful? Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think make-up is bad at all. I think it’s great to want to look your best. But are you confident in yourself, how God made naturally made you, and how you look without make-up first?I totally understand why we young women are so insecure in who we are. Lately, there’s been a lot of controversy over a Ralph Lauren model who was photoshopped. The model was a size 4, and they photoshopped her picture and fired her for being too fat. Come again, a size 4??? Ladies, that is not fat. And it’s not healthy for a size 4 woman to be considered “fat.”






It’s not rocket science why girls are so insecure with their body types. Or their faces for that matter. Watch this crazy photoshopping done to a woman from the neck up in this video:








As I watched that ad, I realized not even models are flawless. Their photos are fake and fixed. The girl behind all that looks normal. She looks like you and I. If we can be confident in how we look and who we are, and not try to change ourselves, we can be truly beautiful, from the inside flowing out. This goes for your personality too, why try to be somebody else who you're not? God made you beautiful, now it’s time for you to accept it. Smile with confidence! =)
