Magazines keep us knowledgeable about what fashionable and current. Movies, music and fashion trends dictate the meaning of perfect; they show the world thinner and indecent models and make every teenager think that’s healthy.
Being a teenager is probably the most beautiful stage of one’s life. As your body changes one can either embrace the change or start hating what they are becoming.
So teens start trying anything--medications, diets and whatever it takes to look like what your friends, the media and magazines think you should look like.
There is no perfect or imperfect body. We are all unique and special because we are all created to be different and that doesn’t make any of us better than others.
We are more than what we look like. We have inner beauty that we need to portray most. Looking good has to start with how you feel within.
People can love you but unless you appreciate what you are you will always have issues with self esteem.
So the next time you are confronted with low self esteem, just remember that you are special and valued. Every child is a beautiful gift to your parents and all the people in your life.
You are talented and more than able to achieve your dreams in life.
Nothing should stop you from realizing your value in society since we all know that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.
