You are beautiful because you say so!


I'm sure you've heard that some guys like girls who "don't know they're beautiful" and that, this fact, makes them even more beautiful.

And I'm sure you've even listened to songs that say:

"You don't know you're beautiful, that's what makes you beautiful" ~ One Direction, What makes you beautiful.

"Tap on my window, knock on my door, I want to make you feel beautiful" ~ Maroon 5, She will be loved.

"You fix your make up, just so Guess you don't know you're beautiful" ~John Legend, You and I.

"Girl let me love you and I will love you until you love yourself" ~ Ne Yo, Let me love you.

"If your mirror won't make it any clearer, I'll be the one to let you know" ~ John Legend, You and I.

"Yeah, I know, I know when I compliment her she won't believe me. And it's so, it's so sad to think she doesn't see what I see" ~ Bruno Mars, The way you are.

Well, guess what, you don't need no guy to let you know you're beautiful. And plus, What if you did know you're beautiful?

I used to get very annoyed when I got comments from strangers while I'm walking on the streets, like "Hey, beautiful, what's up?" or "Wow, you're such a cutie" or "Hello pretty, you look smokin". But a couple of days ago, I saw this video and after that, even though I did know I was beautiful, it made me look at several situations differently. For instance, yesterday at the supermarket, I was with my sister on the escalators when some guy hurriedly passed us and said "Excuse me, beauties". He did have that perverted look but, for the first time, I took that as a compliment.

That doesn't mean that I'm gonna be responding to perverted strangers when they compliment me. Don't get me wrong, it still bothers me when being catcalled but, from the inside it should make you go like:

You are beautiful because you say so!

So yeah, I thought about sharing this with my fellow gagers to make them see that they actually are beautiful and they don't need a guy to tell them that for them to believe it.

Have an awesome day, lovelies!

You are beautiful because you say so!
