Women, be beautiful inside, and outside will shine through

2016-04-13 06:00

IT is sad that some women cut themselves in an attempt to be perfect or to please a man. A man should love who you are and your outer qualities are a bonus. Fall in love with the inside and the outside matches up.

When you have plastic surgery you are prone to infection and pain or a messed up procedure that could be detrimental to your health, yet you are willing to put your life at risk, it is scary and sad.

Your self-esteem comes from within. Try to keep fit and eat healthy. You don’t have to be a supermodel to be beautiful. Most struggle with eating disorders in an attempt to achieve fashion utopia. The media portrays images of perfection so you buy into the advertisement and some men expect to date this stereotype.

Women must be confident in who they are. They carry life inside them and their body changes. What greater miracle than that, yet they want to rid themselves of these battle scars that are their merits of war, a symbol of their fight, a memory of what they went through and overcame.

Women, you are beautiful because you are created in God’s image. Believe in yourself and be strong. Fight the world’s pressure to be perfect. Be the best you can be and strive to be beautiful inside and your outside will shine through.
