This Commercial Will Change The Way You Look At Yourself


It makes us as viewers see what is so hard to believe as a human being. We are beautiful. Every human being in some way, is beautiful. Its easy to think your sister is beautiful. Your friends are beautiful. But that person reflecting back at you in the mirror? He or she is beautiful too.

We are so hard on ourselves. We believe that if only we could change something about us that we would be so much better looking. If only… has to stop. We are so judgmental of our own bodies. Walking down the street you compare yourself to others that pass by. Stop doing that. Stare straight forward and put a smile on your face.

It is true we see things in others that they can’t always see but maybe we should start believing it. When someone tells you that you have a great smile, smile more. Your friend says you have great legs, flaunt them in a skirt. All of the self shaming needs to stop. Believe it when friends compliment you. Believe it when a significant other says you don’t need to change. They are telling you the truth. They can see things in you that you can’t always see.

This commercial changed my outlook on the way I look at myself. I truly believe that all my friends are beautiful and it’s not easy when they can’t see that. But then I have to remember that sometimes they have to remind me too. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
