There is absolutely nothing wrong with having imperfections. EVERYONE has imperfections, and that’s what’s beautiful. Sure, we may think someone can be perfect, but even they have imperfections that they regard as flaws, yet we may not see it. In this same way, only you are seeing that wee bump on your nose. And do remember that your time in primary school were with rude kids that had nothing better to do but to make fun of others to make themselves feel better.
Don’t let what happened in the past affect how you think or feel about yourself. Because you are the only one that can control how others make you feel. If you chose to let their spiteful words get to you, that is when you become vulnerable. Don’t let them get to you, because you are beautiful. You don’t need your friends, or any guy to tell you that you are. And if a guy is shallow enough to NOT date you just because of that bump on your nose, then he doesn’t deserve you (no matter HOW hot he is).
Confidence only lasts when it comes from YOU. Don’t rely on the compliments of others to keep you going, because you’d just set yourself up for a heavy fall. I feel pretty when I’m wearing my favorite clothes, or even comfortable sweats. I feel prettiest when I’m comfortable and happy with myself.
Feeling pretty seems different than BEING pretty. But they are all in the same. If you feel pretty, then you are pretty. It doesn’t matter if you are pretty to others, but you are just simply pretty to yourself, and that can shine through to others, that, is confidence.
So just remember this, you can’t get others to love you, unless you love yourself first. You’ve gotta love yourself first.
