Natural beauty is not an accomplishment. Being born tall, with full lips, and clear skin are not accomplishments. They're simply features one is born through genetic makeup and luck. ⠀
I clearly work on my appearance. I eat well. I love to dress up and apply makeup. I have a skin care routine. But most of these are all part of health. I'm also the first person to compliment someone based on their physical characteristics because we all need a little pick-me-up. In a world, that is constantly telling you the next thing to change about yourself, we can all use little words like, "Nice eyebrows, sis." This message is for the people love to make others feel bad for things they possess but never worked for. Wether you're born with it, bought it or borrowed it, just take care of yourself. Love yourself. And stop belittling others. Just do you. ⠀
I'm grateful for all the love and compliments I receive from you daily. I did not always feel beautiful. And some days, I still don't. But we must remember that we are so much more than our physical appearance. #findingpaola
