"God is within her, she will not fall."- Psalms 46:5

love yourself...

It's hard to be a girl. You feel like you have to be perfect all the time, or you feel like there are these expectations that you have to live up to. Being a girl comes with a lot of pressure because you think you have to wear makeup or dress super cute to look presentable. With social media, it makes it so much harder to love yourself, especially with TikTok. I catch myself saying, "Omg, I wish I looked like her," all the time. Being a girl is hard, but what is even more challenging is all the comparisons, jealousy, and doubt that comes with it.
"I wish I had her eye color."
"I wish I had her clear skin."
"I wish I was as skinny as her."
"I wish I looked like her."
"I wish I had her ____" there are so many things I could say.
We all do it. We all wish there were something about us we could change. We all want to be like someone else. It's time to know that being a girl is a beautiful thing. It's time to accept who you are because He made you. Never forget Psalm 139:14!! "You are fearfully and wonderfully made!!" It's time to love who you are on the inside and out. Why is being a girl so hard? It's only as hard as you make it. If you say, "I hate being a girl because I have to wear makeup," then stop,,, it's your choice, and you're beautiful without it. There is no rule book on what you can and can't do because you're a girl, so do what makes Y O U happy! Stop comparing yourself to others, but instead say, "I am made perfect in His image, I am beautiful, and I love myself." Self-love does not mean you are conceited. It means you're happy with who you are, and that is so much better than anything else that anyone has. No one is perfect, and learning to love who you are is hard. I struggle with it every day. It's time for girls to support other girls. Let's stop not liking other girls out of jealousy or what others' opinions maybe, but instead, let us support each other!! Let's tell other girls that they look pretty, or that their outfit is cute!! Hype other girls up because I promise being kind makes yourself feel good too!
John 15:12!!!!! "Love one another!!!" This isn't something we can choose, but a command that we are told to live by.
One of my New Years' resolutions is to love myself. One way to do that is to give your life to Him completely, and then everything else in your life will fall into place. It's a lot easier to love others if you love who you are first, and I realize that every day. Yes, it's hard, but it's not impossible without Jesus and support from others. So let's make 2021 the year of self-love, loving others, and growing our relationship with God. I love you all, and I'm always here if you need to talk,,, judgment free!!
