Often, teenager girls look at themselves in the mirror, asking one question: “Am I beautiful?” Well, the answer is simple. Yes, you are beautiful! And it doesn’t take a mirror to realize that. Beauty isn’t what’s on the outside, but it what’s on the inside that really counts. Yes, I know it sounds kind of cheesy, but it’s true. Everything that makes you, you (characteristic wise) is inner beauty.
Inner beauty is a hard thing to find, especially for teenage girls, but you can do it!
Just remember to do a few things:

 1. Be Confident in yourself. Think of three great characteristics about yourself, and constantly remind yourself of these characteristics.  They help define your inner beauty.

 2. Don’t give up. Never give in to the negative comments people may say about you. Be optimistic and don’t let words bring you down! No matter what people say that make you think otherwise, know this, you are beautiful. Also, don’t compare yourself to others. You are your own unique person. Be proud of that.

 3. Show others your inner beauty. Remember those three characteristics that describe yourself I asked you about? Well, don’t just tell yourself, show it to others. For example, I would say I am beautiful because I am helpful, benevolent, and funny. I like to demonstrate this by doing little actions every day. It could be as simple as holding a door open for someone, cheering up a friend by telling them a joke, or giving a compliment to someone.

 4. Hang out with your friends. Don’t you always feel happy around your friends? They are always there for you, and support you. Just make sure you are hanging out with the right crowd. Remember, real friends don’t care about how you look. They like you for who you are.

 5. Love yourself. This is the most important step in finding your inner beauty. No one in this whole world is like you, so embrace this fact. Be you!

So now, I challenge you to discover your own inner beauty. Don’t worry, it may take some time, but remember this: “The best and the most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen, nor touched… but are felt in the heart.” – Helen Keller
