I know what you’re thinking: Wow! She came out with this one pretty fast! I was inspired, and so I decided to write it down and publish it on my blog. I’m not going to introduce this one quite as much, except to say that this apostrophe isn’t meant for just one person. With that, enjoy!
Dear Pretty Girl,
Yes, you; I’m talking to you. You don’t think you’re pretty, do you? Well, I am here to tell you that you are. You are pretty. Gorgeous, even. You know what the best part about you is? You are unique. You have your own special features, and each one of them is precious. I know you look in that mirror and hate some, or perhaps all, of what you see. I know you sit there and nitpick at yourself, running through all of the things that you wish you could change. I know you toss that outfit in the corner because you don’t think you will ever look good in it. But the truth is, you’re perfect. Just the way you are. You are uniquely you, and all of those things that you call “flaws” are just expressions of your uniqueness and beauty. Still don’t believe me? Well, look at nature, for instance. I think we can all agree that nature is beautiful: a turquoise ocean surrounded by white sand and swaying palm trees, a snow-capped mountain towering over the horizon, a brightly-colored tree frog surrounded by luscious amazon jungle… all of these scenes are vastly different, yet all are beautiful. You are the same way. Just because you are not the same as someone else doesn’t mean that you aren’t beautiful. You are beautiful because you are you, and anyone who says otherwise is either jealous or just plain mean.
But pretty girl, beauty is not just on the outside. It is on the inside as well. And in fact, I would say that the inside is even more important than the outside. It is your unique personality that makes you beautiful as well. All of your likes, dislikes, and habits. The little clues that let people know how you’re feeling – everyone has them. All of the little things that make you yourself. Those things are beautiful too, and one of the greatest joys in life is discovering them and getting to know you.
Pretty girl, you deserve the best. Don’t ever settle for less just because you think you aren’t good enough and this is probably the best that you can get or that you deserve. No, you deserve the best of what makes you happy. Don’t let yourself think that you deserve to be beaten down or discouraged. You deserve to be treated well, built up, and happy. You are precious. You are a gift. You are beautiful.
You are you. And that’s the best part about you.
