Everyone wants us to be different.
Thinner, taller, shorter, anything but ourselves.
That’s why we look at ourselves the way we do.
People try to modify us, make us into their Invision of a perfect person.
And we hate on ourselves because we can’t do that.
We can’t just one day wake up and have our hair the way society says how long, short, or what color it should be.
That’s never going to happen.
We can’t wake up and have flawless skin.
We can’t do anything to make ourselves look like a model and see we are all actually beautiful.
We are beautiful no matter way guys say or people in general say. We are strong, capable people ready to face whatever life challenges us.
Everyone has their flaws but it’s our jobs as human beings to accept them and make them something beautiful.
