Beauty is so much more than your appearance

Beauty is so much more than your appearance

We live in a world that promotes fashion, standardized beauty and superficiality. The society tells us how to dress, which make-up we should wear and how to behave in order to be considered beautiful or worthy. They have labels for everything: “you are too short, too tall, too skinny, too fat, your hair is too curly, too straight.”

 

Everything is just not good enough. And this is how we, girls, try to change everything that is possible about ourselves because we crave to be appreciated, loved and accepted.

The pressure to follow the crowd is greater than ever and it became easy to compromise with small things that actually do more damage than they seem to

My dears, I know you’ve heard this before, but I need you to believe me: beauty is so much more than your appearance. Beauty is not measured with a length of tape or weighing scales.

Also the people in your life are not there because of the way you look. If someone stays for your image, will leave eventually. Your true value consists of a beautiful character and personality. Invest in your inner beauty more. Be kind, loving, patient, speak life, encourage the ones around you. You are so precious, you have no idea.14876404_1183992831678505_3877527872889689695_o

Maybe you don’t know why I say that. Well… let me tell you something about the One who created you. God had so much love to offer and so He decided to create you. He said that His work was good when He made you in a wonderful way and He looks at you with admiration. He makes no mistakes, don’t you think? Consider yourself a work of art.

An artist’s paintings are made unique by the different brush strokes, colors, even the emotions he puts into it so in the end, every piece is different. Not everyone’s taste, but still beautiful. 

And the artist that designed this world and you says that He doesn’t look at things people look at.God looks at your heart. He goes deeper than the surface and we should also do that. Society should know that labels are for jars, not people.

I want you to believe that you are beautiful, worthy of love and capable. Yes, capable of being confident about your look, while knowing that what makes you beautiful is more than your reflection

RO:

Traim intr-o lume care a diminuat notiunea de frumusete la standardele superficiale ale industriei fashion. Societatea ne dicteaza cum sa ne imbracam, ce machiaj sa folosim si chiar cum ar trebui sa ne comportam ca sa fim considerate frumoase si valoroase. Exista etichete pentru orice: “esti prea scunda, prea inalta, prea slaba, prea grasa, parul tau e prea cret, prea drept” si asa mai departe.

Pur si simplu nimic nu este suficient de bun pentru ei. Si uite-asa, noi, fetele, incercam sa schimbam tot ce se poate si nu se poate schimba la noi, fiindca tanjim sa fim apreciate, iubite si acceptate.

Presiunea sa ne aliniem multimii este mai mare ca niciodata si a devenit atat de usor sa ne compromitem in lucrurile mici, fara sa realizam ca acestea provoaca mai mult rau decat pare

Dragelor, stiu ca ati mai auzit asta de nenumarate ori, dar trebuie sa ma credeti: frumusetea inseamna mult mai mult decat infatisarea exterioara. Frumusetea nu are unitate de masura.

Oamenii care sunt prezenti in viata ta nu au ramas pentru felul in care arati. Daca cineva ramane pentru imaginea ta, mai devreme sau mai tarziu va pleca. Valoarea ta, in adevarul sens al cuvantului, consta mai degraba in frumusetea caracterului si a personalitatii tale. Alege sa investesti mai mult in frumusetea ta interioara. Fii buna, iubitoare, rabdatoare, vorbeste bine, incurajeaza-i pe cei de langa tine. Pot sa iti mai spun ceva? Nu iti poti imagina cat esti de pretioasa.

Poate ca nu stii de ce spun asta, dar lasa-ma sa iti explic. Vreau sa iti spun ceva important despre Cel care te-a creat. Dumnezeu a avut multa dragoste de oferit, asa ca a decis sa te creeze pe tine. Dupa ce te-a creat, a constatat despre propria lucrare ca e foarte buna, a spus ca te-a creat intr-un mod minunat si de atunci El se uita la tine cu admiratie. Eu nu cred ca Dumnezeu face greseli, ar trebui sa stii asta. Poti sa te consideri o lucrare de arta.

Picturile unui artist sunt realizate in mod inedit, cu diferite tehnici, culori si chiar emotiile investite sunt diverse, ca in final fiecare lucrare este o capodopera in unicitatea ei. Nu neaparat pe gustul tuturor, dar asta nu-i minimizeaza frumusetea.

Exact la fel ai fost si tu creata, exact la fel esti si tu privita de Artistul tau. Artistul tau nu doar ca te-a creat pe tine, dar a creat lumea intreaga, si daca El spune ca nu se uita la aceleasi lucruri la care se uita si oamenii, ar trebui sa il credem. Dumnezeu se uita la inima ta! Privirea Lui e patrunzatoare, trece dincolo de suprafata, iar noi, oamenii, ar trebui sa invatam sa privim la fel. Societatea ar trebui sa stie ca etichetele sunt pentru borcane, nu pentru oameni.

Vreau neaparat sa crezi despre tine ca meriti sa fii iubita, ca esti frumoasa si capabila. Da, capabila sa fii increzatoare in legatura cu felul in care arati. Capabila sa constientizezi ca ceea ce te face frumoasa e mai mult decat ce reflecti la exterior
