Obsessed On Looking Good

Just gonna do a rant today because it's been bugging me for weeks now and I have the tendency to get everything out of my chest instead of keeping it in- whether you care or not. I mean, whatever.
     So, I've been seeing a lot of my friends obsessing on looking pretty and perfect. Not gonna lie, I do too. But then it got me thinking though, why do we do this? How long are we going to let this affect us?
     I could go on and on about what matters most is what is on the inside and inner beauty is more valuable and all that stuff but forget about it for a minute. Let's be real here, we are visual creatures. Whatever is pleasing to look at captures our attention is it not? It's O-KAY to have an effort on looking good once in a while.
     What bugs me the most though is when people are trying to look like let's say, Kylie Jenner and they are starting to lose their identity. Now I'm not saying that having inspirations on your style is bad. I do too. It's just that it makes a lot of people frustrated to not being able to achieve that "standard look" they have set in their minds.
     We all have different features. Not all of us are blessed enough to do plastic surgeries like the Hollywood stars. This is not me telling you to forget about your looks and just be yourself. You know that phrase? The one where people say, "Be yourself. Your looks doesn't matter,"? Well I completely disagree with that because you know why? Because it's like saying, "You can't do anything about how ugly you are anyway." Trust me, saying that to someone is never going to make them feel any better. What I am saying to you though is work with what you have.
     So what did I mean by working with what you have? Well, wear clothes that flatters your body, do your hair that flatters your face shape and whatever works with your features that are different from the others. I know a lot of you probably think, "Well easy for you to say, you're pretty." Trust me I have some insecurities too. I have terrible acne on my forehead which led me on cutting my bangs. I have sparse eyebrows and I have to draw on them whenever I go out. I have small boobs and a very skinny body so I wear shirts that are slightly bigger than my size to cover it. I have a small butt and it looks better on dresses instead of jeans which is why I wear dresses a lot. I have a round face and a small chin so I let my hair down most of the time because it frames my face perfectly. I could go on and on but I don't want to bore you.
     I am sure you get the picture by now and understand what I meant by working with what you have. I really do not believe that anybody is ugly out there. It's just the way you present yourself. Despite my insecurities though, I've learned to love how I look like now and gives me so much challenge on styling myself every day.
     However, at the end of the day people are gonna wanna be with someone that has amazing personality. You can choose to be this Instagram girl that has over 4000 likes on a selfie or the average looking person that walks in a room with this spark and just lights up the room. The one that people cannot stop talking about your positive vibe and would never get enough of you even after you leave the room. I've seen people like that on Twitter that gave me such a huge positive impact from their vibe without even looking like supermodel. It's somehing I hold dear to my heart.

I'm not telling you what you should and shouldn't do but I hope when you're stressing out about how you look like, you would know where you actually put your self-worth. ♡
