I love, love, love this post! I so adore you! I will be reblogging this one as well! ???
Thank you so much, Roda! This post is so important to me because it is something I have struggled with my whole life, and I know so many other women have, too. Please feel free to reblog! I greatly appreciate that!
It has been one of my journeys as well!?
And I adore you, too! You are so wonderful.
Roda: You are truly one of the most beautiful women I know. Much love to you, Darling!
This is wonderful. I hope your post goes far and wide!
Your lips to God’s ears, Ali :).
Oh so true!!! The Secret Beauty Society (SBS) is obviously being run by SOBs. It has to stop!
You are exactly right, Mainepaperpusher! Nicely expressed!
I love this!!! It’s so sad and true, but I hope people will begin to realize they are beautiful for who they are. Maybe reading this post could help them. I helped me ?
I am so glad you found it helpful, Shelby! You are lovely!
Such a great post. There’s just so much pressure out there to look a certain way. Girls that are so young even get sucked into it. There are so many things that make a person beautiful, least of which is looks! One night when we were getting ready to go out, I was too tired to put make up on. And my husband says to me – “You know, I think you’re prettier without makeup anyway.” <3
I love that! My husband has always said the same thing. I am so glad that so many of us women are waking up to how ridiculous and harmful these standards are. You are so lovely, M.B.!
🙂 You too. Keep those posts coming, you always make my day!
You’re so lovely, M.B.! I am so pleased we found each other through WordPress! I am looking forward to reading your newest post soon!
