Mine would be, you really don't have to wear makeup all the time. You can get comfortable with your natural self and when you start to exude confidence, people will naturally find you attractive.

Beauty standards are f***ed up... I grew up in a society where my acquaintances asked for liposuctions, boob or nose jobs as birthday presents in HIGH SCHOOL. I grew up and live in a society where you should have big boobs or a big ass or you are not considered that beautiful enough or "hot", it's awful how little girls are thought what they can change in their bodies instead of making them feel confortable with themselves.


I totally agree with you, I don't use make up (I hate it, too much work) and everytime I have to, it enhances my natural features.

No one could have said it better! You can't even tell the difference between teenagers now and adults.

I have learned to love myself and my body the way I am. I don't wear make up on a regular basis and I firmly believe that the more make up you put on your face the more it will messed it up with wrinkles and pimples. I feel sorry about the girls that need to put all that fake stuff on them to feel better about themselves. I mean, if they want to wear it it's ok but not to try to attain something they are not.

I like being bald. No worrying about my hair anymore. 

I'm reading the Malazan Book of the Fallen.

Beauty is fine but is not a dealbreaker like most people claim it to be. I mean I've seen average looking girls that I find absolutely attractive based on their personality alone.

Personality vs physical appearance.
