What I Will Make Sure My Daughter Knows About Beauty

They’ll tell you that what matters is on the inside, that you don’t judge a book by its cover. They’ll tell you to be a good and beautiful person on the inside, that looks don’t matter.

I’m here to tell you, future daughter, that looks do matter in this world you’ll eventually step into.

I’m here to tell you that people will treat you and judge you based on your looks. Boys will love based on your looks; girls will want to be your friends based on your looks.

I’m telling you this so you don’t start questioning yourself, your mind, your soul, because people can make you do that.
Don’t judge yourself because others do. Don’t question yourself because others do. This is a world where even flowers get picked depending on how they look- even if all flowers are beautiful in their own way.

Don’t let people make you wonder if you’re likeable or loveable because believe me, you are magic.

Trust and love yourself because everything starts with you. Your opinion about yourself is the only one that matters. Of course you’re beautiful (inside and out) and remember to never let anyone make you doubt that. TC mark
