1. Stop following so many models and celebrities on Instagram. Instead follow people who look like you. For instance, if you have short natural hair then follow women with short natural hair. Stop following all of these supermodels with long straight weave and doubting your own worth.
2. Stop hanging around negative people. You will become who you surround yourself with, so enjoy positive company.
3. Research the steps that you need to take to find your own pretty. If there is something that you do not like about yourself, then change it. For example, I do not like my jelly rolls on my back, so I am working out to get rid of them!
4. Love yourself. Once you completely love yourself and accept yourself, others will have no choice but to accept you or leave you. You were created with a unique purpose, don't let that go to waste. Listen to Crooked Smile by J. Cole & TLC.
Pretty does not hurt, but low self-esteem can be painful. We all struggle with it, so let's keep this dialogue open and grow together. God created so many beautiful women and men. We need to learn to embrace our flaws and differences. I can honestly say that I get jealous of other women sometimes and desire what they have, but then God snatches me up and reminds me that He created me to be just who I am, nothing more or less. You are beautiful. If no one ever told you before, you are enough! You are gorgeous inside and out and you deserve to shine!
