The topic of beauty and the way women see themselves has weighed heavily on my heart this year. Maybe it’s because I spend more time in a bar (dancing, not drinking) than I ever have before, and I watch men and women interact in what should really be described as a mosh-pit of hormones. I watch some men try their very hardest to woo women honestly, and some men try for just one thing. I watch women fall for lines, be intrigued and pulled in by handsomeness instead of kindness, by enticing eyes instead of genuine, non-sexual conversation.
I wish I could tell every woman – no matter your background, no matter your size, no matter your imperfections and your mistakes, no matter your age, the color of your skin, your father’s sins or your mother’s mishaps – you are worth loving, you are worth respect, you are worthy.
I hope and pray we can raise our daughters to know the words in the graphic below:
