Oh To Be Beautiful


Hey everyone. Welcome back to the blog.


Today...I don't even know where to start. I'm sure you've read the title so we're just gonna go with the flow for this one.


I have a problem...

I've always struggled with my appearance. Whenever someone would point something out to me about my face or my body I would never look at myself the same. I would wish my hands were smaller or my a certain facial feature was made differently and it would just go on and on but today this blog is not going to be that the type of motivational speech where I tell you that you're beautiful no matter what and you don't need anyone to tell you otherwise blah blah blah


I don't mean to sound harsh but I have a huge problem with the self love culture. You have to love yourself, all of you, before this or that could happen blah blah. That's the problem. Everything is about oneself and if you keep focusing on that you'll never be satisfied.


Here's the thing, you don't have to like every single thing about yourself, in fact, I hesitate to say that's not even possible. Once you finally are okay with something or you fix something there's another problem that you find and the cycle goes over and over again while society tells us the same message "love all of you" you this or you that yata yata. It's honestly annoying which is why I'm here.


I'm not trying to belittle you or make you feel some type of way about yourself I'm just here to be honest and say that you don't have to like everything. What matters is that you know who you are in Christ. What matters is that you know your worth and where it is found.


Let me explain...

Whenever I tell someone I don't like something about myself or I have a certain insecurity that's the follow up response "Ruth you have to love yourself.." but who said that I didn't? I do. I just don't like my forehead and that's okay. I still know that I am valuable and that my identity is found in Christ.


You see if I keep focusing on myself and everything that is wrong with my physical appearance, eventually, I'm going to be so caught up with me that I lose focus and take my eyes off of Christ.


So what am I trying to say?

Long story short is that you don't need to like every single thing about yourself to know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)

I really hope this wasn't confusing to read. Lol I don't even think the title is fitting for what I wrote but whatever. This has been bothering me and I just wanted to say it without sounding redundant. Hopefully this blog will encourage you to dig into to Scripture and spend more time with God.


Until next time sweet friends <3
