Do You Think You're Beautiful?

I do. I think you're ALL beautiful!! lmao! I think it's one thing to think one's self is beautiful, but another to love one's self! Many people consider themselves to be beautiful, but that can't be true if you don't love yourself! Sure I think I can be pretty sometimes...but I have had years of struggling with loving myself. Sure, I can blame past relationships, or my childhood for making me feel this way about myself. But at some point it's time to take control of your feelings and emotions and learn how to do it. I'm slowly learning that. Thankfully, I have a wonderful husband and many great friends that try to help, but then again, no one can make you love yourself. Mostly, yes, I consider myself beautiful because I know that inside I am a good person. (most of the time, lol)

yes, you are beautiful. I see from your picture you have a good open face and lucky eyes. I like you, feel we all have a beauty and this can be seen clearly in us when we are young children. However, i feel life twists us out of shape, we are damaged both by events and by other peoples reactions to us. We can also, as we become damaged, start to see an uglyness in others that is in reality a reflection of the damage within ourselves. In reality we are all beautiful but we are blinded and can sometimes not see it in ourselves. When we can not see any beauty in ourselves we can not see it in others. The secret is to allow our own beauty to shine throgh, show it off in our actions and celebrate it is others blessed be

Yes, what you say makes sense! I agree to an extent. Some women are capable of being beautiful on the outside, but don't have the time or the energy, which I think comes with confidence, to take the necessary steps towards that beauty. I struggle with that myself. Being a stay at home mom to 5 kids, keeps me pretty busy, I'm lucky if I get a shower before bedtime...so doing my hair and/or makeup is sometimes something I don't have the time to do. Thanks for your response.

Being beautiful isn't about looks, that is too shallow and easiliy manipulated. Beauty is in the heart and soul. A person that gives of themselves, their time and their energy without need ot reward is beautiful. The act of giving makes them beautiful. Do I think I'm beautiful? I do what I can. I try to live a virtuous life and never do harm to others. Give of my time freely without regard for payback and hope to inspire others with my attitude toward life. I try at least. Am I beautiful, even by my definition..I don't know..maybe not beautiful but at least I'm pretty darn cute.
