We can get discouraged and put ourselves down so much when we compare ourselves to others. We shouldn't do it, but we are human and that's what we do. I wish I didn't do it so much. I constantly see pictures of these beautiful girls on Tumblr and Instagram with their perfect hair, sun kissed skin, white teeth, glowing skin (face), and a body to kill for. I question myself as to why I don't look this way.
I remind myself that even if I want to look like them, I can't because that's not how I was made. Everyone has a different body type and that's what makes us all unique. If we want to make ourselves look like others, that just makes us copies. I don't want to be a copy, I want to be Ilana.
-I have frizzy hair no matter how much product I put in it
-I have great teeth that may not be white but I practice very good dental hygiene
-I'm not extremely tan, but I use sun block to protect my skin and prevent skin cancer
-I don't have flawless skin, but I do wash my face every day and moisturize and I'm not extremely acne prone, so I consider myself lucky
-My body type is unique to me and I can't change it (unless I went under the knife but that's not happening)
It's good to list these things about myself to show the positive and real side of it all. So I leave you with this quote I saw on Pinterest, know your worth, then add tax :)
