Open Invitation
I know this comm hasn't been posted in for a while now, but I just wanted to invite any lurkers to join opbeautiful . It's pretty much just a pick-me-up site where anyone can post the little things that give them hope or the ways they try to reach out and give others hope.

Just a little light in the dark. ♥

I have stopped being manipulated by stereotyped ideas of who and what I should be and accepted myself as who and what I really am.

i am beautiful because...
... because after everything that happened last year, even though we're just friends, we can still go out for a cup of coffee & talk forever & he actually enjoys my company.
... because i can finally think of that other one, the one who broke my heart a few years ago, without asking God "why" & instead just accepting that it happened & i've ended up a stronger person because of it.
... because i felt confident enough in myself this morning to not need to put on tons of makeup; today it was barely there.
... because i am beautiful in my own right & as nice as words of affirmation are, i don't need anyone else's approval.

I am beautiful...
Because no matter how many people step all over my feelings and my heart, I never cease to open my heart up any less to next person who comes my way.

I am beautiful because I am working diligently to become the person I want to be. I am giving up the habits that were comfortable but harmful to my body and mind. I am learning to search myself to find the authentic truth down deep inside--no matter whether it is what I want to be true or not. I am learning to take one minute, hour, day at a time. Not condemning myself if I have to start over, but instead learning the triggers so it won't happen again.

Because we are still best friends even though he broke my heart. We are still best friends even though he moved on to my best gal friend. Because I can still remember how beautiful he made me feel and still push forward without looking back.

I am beautiful

because I can still smile and laugh and mean it.

I just completely shaved off a good few weeks' worth of facial hair, which I guess I grew because I didn't want to look at my face in the mirror every morning and I didn't want anyone else to either. I've realised I'm actually maybe not all that bad looking.
