Whether you believe you are or not, please continue to read my letter for you.

Dear Beautiful,

How was your day? Did you wake up this morning and smile at the mirror for you see a reflection of how perfect you are? Did you remember to greet yourself a good morning and tell yourself you are lovely today? Yes, you are. You must do that every morning. It should be your mantra, you know, because that will give you a boost to carry on and will motivate you to stay happy for the rest of the day.

I’ve seen you been down so many times, I’ve seen you isolate yourself from the world and choose to be alone rather than socialize with people. I know your struggles to try to “fit in”. I understand how difficult it is for you to deal with mean people who are too negative about everything, about you. I know the feeling of being too conscious about how you look and how other sees you. I definitely know what you’re thinking, that you are less than them, that they are more blessed than you are, that they are perfect and you are not, that you are hoping and wishing you could be like them and live a life like them.

You can go ahead and ask me why I called you beautiful. My answer would be… I called you that because YOU ARE.

How you see yourself is what reflects your every action, your every word, your every movement and the way you carry yourself. Beauty is not depending on your physical appearance but is in your mindset and in your heart. Beauty flows in your blood, you just don’t know how to use it. If you look in the mirror, what do you see? All the physical flaws? Then, you see too much negativity. You don’t look straight into your eyes and see more of what’s inside you that’s why your mind’s energy becomes directed to all the “undesirables” and you fail to recognize the good things in you.

Dear beautiful, the moment you accept yourself is the moment you’ll feel FREE. Love yourself and your flaws first before others can love you. How will people love someone who doesn’t even know how to truly love and who only sees the bad side of everything? Let acceptance bloom in your heart and help yourself from being caged in the blackness of pessimism. Your imperfections complete you, without them, you are not you. So open up, wake up, see the goodness of your heart and be enlightened.

You are the only one who will give your own definition of beauty.

Do not ever live your life believing each and every unfavorable criticisms. Not everything they say is true about you.

Don’t live a life how others want you to. Live your own. Don’t let others define you.

Negative comments should make you stronger and better. Smart people listen and understand, stupid ones fight back.

Not all rude people are bad. They are also fighting their own battle inside and they don’t know how to get out of it. Be open-minded.

Insecure people are unhappy people. Don’t be one of them.

Stay positive all the time no matter how gloomy the world is.

Lastly, smile, that is your greatest weapon. When you hear or see something you don’t like from someone, smile. Kill them with your happiness. Be happy about everything.

When the time comes you’ve set yourself free from insecurity, help someone get out of her cage. So, Beautiful, it’s time to get out and see the light that’s been waiting for you. If there is one song I would dedicate for you, it would be STAY THE SAME by Joey Mcintyre because this song summarizes what I’m trying to tell you.

Don’t you ever wish you were someone else,
You were meant to be the way you are exactly
Don’t you ever say you don’t like the way you are
When you learn to love yourself, you’re better off by far
And I hope you’ll always stay the same
‘Cause there’s nothing ’bout you I would change.

Your Inner Self
