Do you like the person you are?
Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and I am confused at what I see. Since when did that young girl grow up?
As I count the lines on my face that I have never noticed before, something catches my attention; I'm looking at myself but am I really seeing myself? As I look into these blue eyes, I've never been so lost.
I feel as of late, most women and girls set the body expectations higher than they should. Blame it on social media, blame it on Kim K., blame it on all the little boys who broke your heart and told you that you are not good enough. But ultimately, beauty has to come from within.
If you do not love yourself, you could never love somebody else. Insecurities, self loathing.. enough is enough.
