When I was a teen, I always felt a bit insecure because my 2 sisters were always so much more beautiful than me. This is not a call for pity or compliments, it's just plain fact that they got lucky in the gene lottery. Today, I've become a lot more comfortable in my skin and I've learned to laugh off any comments that would previously bring up those insecurities (some people can be so insensitive, but anyway...). I learned to apply myself in other things and I've been living life to the fullest. I recently talked to my younger sister who I'm really close to, and she confided in me insecurities SHE has. She doesn't see her own beauty and spunk and awesomeness, and this really baffles me. I guess what my confession is is that: I only recently realized being beautiful doesn't solve life's problems and doesn't chase away insecurities. I used to think my life would be so much easier if I looked like them, but now not so much. Love yourself, life is too short to pine over what other people have.
