Finding beauty in yourself

      It is tough to be unique.  We want to fit in and be seen as "normal."  

This is completely understandable because we, as humans (and especially as teenagers) have a desire to be accepted. 

     What is hard about working so hard to be accepted is that we often don't even accept ourselves.  It is hard to respect yourself when there will always be someone skinnier, prettier, taller, shorter, or more popular than you.  

     What lies behind you and what lies in front of you, pales in comparison to what lies inside of you. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson.  

      We have to remember that we are children of God and we are created in His beautiful image.  There is no need to compare.  You are beautiful becuase God made you and that is all you need.
