You are beautiful.

You know what it’s like to not be the pretty girl. You know what it feels like to be in the pretty girl clique but not be the pretty girl. You know what it’s like to have your friends tell you you’re pretty but in reality they’ll never get it. They will never get how it feels. Not how it feels to be unpretty or have a bad hair day but to feel ugly. To look in the mirror and truly not like what you see. To truly despise what’s looking back at you. To think that you have nothing to offer and the best thing you can do is look pretty, but you’re not pretty so what now? What are you supposed to do when you feel both ugly and weird? When you genuinely feel that you have nothing to offer the world because you don’t have the perfect smile and you just don’t fit in with the ‘cool’ crowd because you’re different.

You are beautiful.

Get off you knees. Clean your fingers. Throw that scale away. You are beautiful. They don’t deserve to shine in the light that you bring to this world. They don’t deserve to dance under the rainbow that is your greatness. You don’t need to cut at your waist hoping that the fat will seep out and you’ll be able to fit into that bikini. You are beautiful. You don’t need to munch on an apple every day for a month just to be able to run your fingers across your bones. You are beautiful. So please stop and eat. You. Are. Beautiful.

Be beautiful.
