A conversation between my mirror and me. ~Dialogue 500~
I'm so ugly. My hair is so short. I look like a boy. Teacher didn't even know who I was.
I don't see what you're talking about, you are and have always been beautiful.


I have so much acne! Why can't my skin be as clear as the other girls'? It's so nasty. I hate these blackheads. And these glasses don't help. Why am I so different? I'm so stupid. Nobody says I'm pretty.
I don't see what you're talking about, you are and have always been beautiful.


Now my acne is gone, but look at these scars! They're so obvious! I mean, when I look at the mirror, I don't see them right away but that's even worse because I think I look better than I do, especially when I don't have my glasses on! I need more makeup. And these blackheads are like craters on my nose! I hate this!
I don't see what you're talking about, you are and have always been beautiful.


Well, ok. It's not that bad. I mean, a lot of people look like me, right? A lot of famous people. Makeup can cover the scars. And I don't usually use mascara, but that would help my eyes stand out. So...not so bad. But look at this stain on my tooth! Why do I smile all day? Everyone sees it, and they probably think it's rotten! Why did there have to be so much fluoride in my mom's water???

Wow, look at the way the shadows outline my face. I do have a pretty smile. And my cheekbones are pretty. I guess I'm not so ugly after all.
Now you're seeing what I'm talking about, you are and have always been beautiful.


I want people to see kindness in my smile. I want them to see the joy in my face and feel it too. The life inside lights up my eyes. Wow, I really love my face. It's perfect for me.
Now you know, you are and have always been beautiful.
