I see a lot of posts here on Tumblr by people who seem to have self-defeatist attitudes and low self-esteem. It’s despairing to see the amount of reblogs these posts get. If you believe you’re ugly or a mess, it will show up in how you carry yourself. Have you ever met that person who although may not be the most aesthetically pleasing but she/he walks with her/his head held high? That person who smiles and you see that there is beauty. The person with the positive attitude, who accepts their faults but finds her/his strengths and uses them to their fullest potential. That is the type of person you should strive to be. So what if you’re not model thin, your hair doesn’t always fall in the right place, you don’t own the latest fashions, you don’t have a lot of followers on a social network, you’re not as muscular as that guy, you have acne, pull yourself together and say to yourself “YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL!”.
