What advice would you give to someone insecure about their looks?
- Asked by Anonymous
Honestly, I’ve always been insecure about how I look myself, but definitely less so as I get older.
I’ve stopped trying to compare my face to anyone else’s because it’s mine not someone else’s. Photos are deceptive, lighting changes everything, and everyone has different ideas about what beauty even is.
But I’ve found that the people I find most attractive aren’t usually as conventionally hot or beautiful by magazine standards, but they have a beauty in their person that comes through. That their beauty is more than just the combination of their features or their body. It’s hard to describe how beautifully someone can move and carry themselves, and how their eyes light up when they talk about something. And that’s where the real beauty lies, in my opinion.
And I’m a firm believer that it’s our little flaws that make us individual and define our own version of beauty. Like, big noses, or sticky out ears or whatever it is that you feel insecure about is probably the very thing that someone loves most about how you look. Own it and rock it. (and throw some glitter on it and go dancing!)
And quite frankly, in a world where Benedict Cumberbatch has become a sex symbol, I think everyone should feel more at home with how they look. ;)
Remember, perhaps you don’t take good pictures because you have the kind of beauty that moves.
