Broken little girl

If the world would open its eyes it would see we are all beautiful no matter the size.

What is it like to love yourself.

Please tell me beautiful girl.

You look in the mirror only to fall in love with yourself,while I just cry.

I know I'm stronger than this.

I need to feel the bliss.


I am beautiful.

I am strong.

I am loving.

I am fun.

So whats the problem.

Why does everything feel so wrong.

What else could I have done.

If you cant force someone to love how can you ask them to love their self?


How can I be so weak yet feel so strong.

Its the hope inside that keeps me holding on.

I may not be a model, but I can still be beautiful.

Living in a world where 90 pounds is beautiful.

Hurts.

That girl in the picture above gave me the shivers. Wow, she needs some food in that belly quick. I'm getting side-tracked by the photo of her. You are right, real beauty is within, because that is what you are saying here when I read between the lines.

This line is curious here "...If you cant force someone to love how can you ask them to love their self..." We do have to learn to love ourselves before we learn to love others. Love is tough, and finding things in ourselves to love can be tough too. If we ever are in doubt, we get a second opinion too. Or find a "better" mirror! :) Take care.

I lived most of my life judging myself on the approval of others - mostly men. When I stopped doing that and occupied my time with building my portfolio of achievements, I began to look at myself differently. Place a value on yourself, believe as though it were true, and then you will be there.

"When the voice and the vision on the inside become more clear and profound and loud than the opinions on the outside, you've mastered your life." - John DeMartini

You may be a little young to master your life, but make choices based on what is best for you. Listen to the opinions of people you respect and admire for their integrity, not their looks, their clique, or their place in Hollywood. Don't make decisions for the approval of others. You will make mistakes but they will be your mistakes. If you base decisions on the opinions of others, you will make mistakes that will lower your opinion of yourself. There is nothing more empowering than being your own boss. Men learn this early because it is expected of them. Women are usually 'taken care of'. We learn to get by on the kindness of strangers, we live by our looks, society enforces this in us and we begin to believe it as children. We see the pretty girls getting all the attention. Pay less attention to what the pretty girls do and get and more attention to developing your own strength and character.

By the way, if your avatar is a picture of you, you have nothing to worry about in the looks department.

Chrissie, I wasn't kidding in the other hub's comments about you, you are a great person, just look for those qualities, they are there. Cheeky gave me an amazing tip "pay yourself first". It took a while to see what she meant, but oh boy does it work. It includes paying yourself the compliments when you do something good or something right. And more besides. (Would you be surprised to know that Cassy and I were worried about you?) Please don't be worrying here. Have a good Sunday, my friend. :)

This was moving. Absolutely beautiful. But it's heart breaking...because of how true it is.
