You’re Not Pretty Enough - October 8th 2019, 03:49 AM

You know exactly what I’m talking about.

You see all those Victoria’s Secret models
with their slim figures and their perfect images.

You see all those Instagram girls who can
throw up a picture of themselves, and they’ll
immediately get thousands of likes within a matter of minutes.

If they pose in a provocative way or wear
a sexy two-piece bikini, they’ll get even more likes.

You see all those beauty magazines telling
you how your image must be like because “it’s the standard.”

But let’s face it:

If showbiz and entertainment told you “you’re perfect as
you are,” there ain’t no money to be made from that.

See beyond the bullshit propaganda.

You don’t need fancy branded clothing and apparel.

You don’t need that fancy branded lingerie.

You don’t need the latest and greatest makeup
that will make you “look more pretty.”

You are beautiful as you are.

Don’t feel like you need to physically change yourself
just to be liked and validated by other people.

You are beautiful as you are.

Remember, youth fades away over time.

What’s important to remember is to build the
beauty on the inside, your character, your personality.

You can physically be the most pretty woman
on the planet, but none of that is going to matter
if you’re so ugly on the inside.

So if you feel like you have to physically change
yourself for one guy just for him to like you, take a
step back and realize that if he genuinely likes you,
you won’t have to try so hard to impress him.

You are beautiful as you are.

This was really good. Thank you so much.

Dance is your pulse, your heartbeat, your breathing.
It’s the rhythm of your life. It’s the expression in time and movement,
in happiness, joy, sadness and envy.
