The Sweater

I used to always wonder if what I was wearing showed too much of my stomach, or too much of my ugly. I’ve been told I am a beautiful person but never really felt it myself. Then right before my freshman year in high school I bought these cool sweaters with pictures of food on it. I was afraid that people were going to make fun of me for wearing something stupid, and for many weeks I kept delaying myself from wearing it. Then the day finally came when I looked in the mirror and said “I am beautiful, curves and dips. Everything from the last string of hair to the tip of my toes.” If you say this to yourself every day you can improve in self confidence. We might think that we’re not perfect, but no one is. STOP COMPARING YOURSELF TO OTHERS!!! Because you are one of a kind. :)
