Loving the Person in the Mirror

Posted By iamincontrol | September 4, 2018

Teen girl unhappy with appearanceIn the morning I see my reflection in the mirror and question “what in the world am I looking at?!” It is very common for people to feel this way and you are not alone. Being perfect is what society today wants us to be, but let’s be honest, that is not going to happen. We are all beautiful in our own way.

Finding that beauty within ourselves is the difficult part though. There are a few different ways that you can have confidence when looking into that reflection.

  • Look at yourself and SMILE. The most beautiful attribute any person has is their smile.
  • Own that crazy bedhead or messy bun that you have going on. Everyone wakes up like that. It’s gorgeous!
  • Compliment yourself on the things that you like the most about yourself. Having confidence is key.

Always remember, no matter what your mind tries to convince you at times: YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
