- It is hard. It is a daily "battle" to look in the mirror and tell yourself I AM beautiful when the world, people, men, even other women are "screaming" something entirely different. In the end you feel better and maybe we will help others to feel better too. :) Go look in the mirrorand pick out one thing (or many) that you like about yourself. I like my eyes. :DJan 28, 2014

- Despite having a father that insisted I was far from beautiful/attractive, I actually have a very positive perception of myself. I've been complimented, asked out and flirted with too often to assume myself the hideous monster I sometimes want to see in the mirror. Yet, I've seen people far more attractive than myself to count myself among the truly astounding. So I'm happily in the middle, wherever that may be.
Though ultimately it matters so little to me because that's not what I want people to remark about with me. I want not to hear I'm beautiful but that I'm intelligent. I want not to be praised for my physical features but my accomplishments in life. All that "beauty" is well and good but its fodder and fading. I want to hear the enduring qualities being associated with being me.Jan 28, 2014
- As I get older I am finding more and more I would like people to be more "brainy" with me. It is very much like you say! While I love my hair (and hated it, much like when I was younger) I grow weary of that being the only thing people seem able to talk to me about. Every Sunday, at church, without fail the same ladies say the same thing about my hair, never once asking me "life questions" or talking the talk. Intelligence is sexy...show it off! :) A wise friend ;) recently quoted Johnny Depp to me, about scars being a body's journal. Sometimes when we look back on the pages of our "journals" we are disgusted, saddened, so angry and self-deprecating it is hard to bare the scars, but much like I value words so much...I must value the scars for who they have or will make me. You are beautiful glasses and all ;)!Jan 28, 2014
