Look in the mirror…

See how awesome you really are!

Your thoughts (427)

Look in the mirror. What do you see? Pimples? Hair that won’t behave? A complexion you hate? Fat? Maybe you feel awkward and stupid?

Know that you’re not the only one who feels this way. Many girls struggle with confidence, so try to stop those thoughts about yourself.

We are our worst enemies. We judge ourselves too harshly. We say and think things about ourselves that we would never say or think about our friends or even our most hated enemies.

We all need a break. You should start learning to love yourself right now. Take this first step. Look into the mirror and see a beautiful girl with a beautiful mind and heart.

Say it! Three simple words: “I am beautiful.”

Say it again. Then shout it. You need to believe it because it’s true. Beautiful doesn’t mean what you see in a magazine or on television or somebody else's opinion that you’re trying to live up to. It isn’t just about what is on the outside, it’s also about what’s on the inside.

Say it again: “I’m beautiful!”

Because you are beautiful. Nobody is perfect but you can be confident. You can decide who you are, and how you feel and react to the world. It’s in your power, you can build your whole life around three little words:

“I'm beautiful!”

Once you know that in your heart, everything gets easier. You don’t have to waste another minute on negative thoughts. Focus your energy into your passions and planning your amazing future!

Don't wait on anybody to validate your beauty coz YOU are beautiful just the way You are, Boitumelo. Never seek nobody's approval, your worth is never to be found in the eyes of people. Real beauty is confidence in self, acknowledging your flaws & knowing your worth. You gotta learn to Be "LESS Beautiful" & Be "MORE Of Yourself".

Looking to outsiders to make ourselves feel good is a mistake because people speak from their own perception and their own experiences of the world. You need to look in the mirror everyday and remind yourself that you are beautiful and although nice words from outsiders is always a confidence booster, you should know your value even before anyone else tells you.

Beauty has less to do with your external appearance and more to do with who you are on the inside! You are beautiful, period! You are not beautiful with if, ands or buts. When you are ready to lose weight, do it for yourself and not for the validation of other people. Tell yourself in the mirror every morning how beautiful you are! You're awesome!

I am beautiful bt sometimes pple breaks u dwn by giving u names tht hurts nd thts wht mkes me a low self-esteem person

This is amazing...thanks for this but I have a problem...at school boys look down on me and my friend for some reason ...they would only talk to me if they need answers for a test or homework and I'm a kind person so I give them...one time some boy asked me if a boy has ever said I'm pretty which means I'm ugly I always ask myself why am I like this ...people out there are so pretty then you get potatoes like me ...life is really killing me ...my friends ask me why I don't date I always tell them I'm not allowed but the real reason is that I have low self esteem and i think I'm a ugly person who doesn't have a nice body which really sucks cause that's not why God put me in this world HE put me in this world to spread his name ...I midst have low self esteem but all I know it's that don't listen to what people say you are beautiful just the way you are 💦😘And smile princess you worth it 💫🙃

Don't let negative people have a huge affect in your life 😘🌞

I think it's normal to feel insecure from time to time, not only teenagers feel this way but adults feel insecure as well. My tips are that you don't let other people's opinions of you determine how you feel about yourself. You need to tell yourself that you're beautiful everyday and it should be a constant reminder. Don't compare yourself to models in magazines or people on TV, they have a team of makeup artist and stylists and people who photoshop their pictures so that they look that way. They are not a true representation of beauty. Also, try not comparing yourself to anyone, you are beautiful and you are you and that's what awesome. Love yourself, you are all you have in this life.

its so funny how we undermine the gud comments amd consider tje bad .....

Being pretty and thin doesn't make you beautiful....today I got a harsh message that made me cry...telling me I'm fat and I need to zumba as it takes me 24 hrs to turn around...in a split of a second I lost confidence...is this how the world sees me I asked myself over and over again..do people judge you by your image...God made me not for ppl to accept me for how I look...

Hi Springster. Bad breath can be solved fairly easily but can also be an indication of other problems. Here are some tips on how to remedy your bad breath naturally; 1. Brush and floss more often. 2. Rinse with mouthwash. 3. Scrape your tongue. 4. Avoid foods that sour your breath like onions and garlic. 5. Drink lots of water. If these tips don't help then maybe you should think about consulting a clinic or doctor. Good luck

I once read that if it's summer and you have a body then you have a summer body. You're going to have to look in the mirror and love yourself Springster every single inch of yourself and other people shouldn't have the power to make you feel insecure about your body. Don't suck in your stomach, if you want to lose weight you will and at your own time and pace and until then love the body you're in.

Here are 6 tips to achieve an even toned skin. 1) Exfoliate your skin 2) Apply a face mask 3) Use a face peel 4) Get rid of dark spots with spot-remover 5) Use moisturizer 6) Use SPF cream to protect your skin from the harsh sun Try these following steps for your hair; 1) Wash you hair at least once, weekly, and condition! Do not over wash because this strips hair of its natural oils 2) Do not use heat too excessively, don't iron or blowdry your hair too often, maybe consider towel drying then air drying 3) Watch your diet, sugary treats can can interfere with the absorption of protein and protein is very important for the structure of bones, teeth and hair 4) By incorporating water into your daily life, you’re not only saving your hair, but your whole body 5) Use products that were made for your hair type to repair and moisturize it

Hi Springster. No man can take your dignity just because you had sex with him. I think the lesson you should learn from your previous relationship is that you should trust what a man shows you and not only what he says. Let your self confidence come from within. Love yourself and be careful and assess the relationships you have going forward before you take it to the next level.

I'm not a specialist but I can tell you are beautiful in and out and nobody is perfect cause God made you like this because he thinks that your inner beauti

Hi Springster. That's called Premenstrual syndrome, or PMS. It describes symptoms a woman may have a few days before her menstrual cycle, including tender breasts, bloating, cramps, mood swings, and headaches. For many women, the worst part of PMS is its unpredictable impact on mood. Irritability, anger, crying spells, depression, and anxiety may come and go in the days leading up to your period. Some women even have trouble with memory and concentration during this time. Don't panic, it's normal and many girls experience it at that time of the month.

Hi Springster. It's important to know that most women will experience irregular bleeding at some point in their life. A period showing up unexpected or delayed does not always mean something serious is going on. But your period showing up whenever it wants can be stressful. Your period may show up earlier than expected, or not show up at all. Here are the most common causes that can cause a delayed or early period thus causing an irregular menstrual cycle: – Medication – Stress and anxiety – Puberty ( When teens first start having periods, their menstrual cycles may not always be on the same schedule every month.) – Extreme exercise or dieting – Hormonal birth control such as contraceptive pills or emergency contraception – Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) ( This medical condition causes tiny cysts to form on ovaries, interfering with regular ovulation). If it doesn't return when your next cycle comes then I recommend you visit your nearest clinic or doctor for professional medical advice.

You are beautiful and perfect to someone, rather wait to find the right person, and you are beautiful Remember that !!

Hi Springster. Thanks for your comment. It's important for you to know that your beauty isn't validated by boys liking or disliking you. Your friends beauty doesn't take away from your own. You've mentioned things about her that you thought stood out, I suggest you write down traits of yourself you consider to be beautiful. You need to boost your self esteem by knowing that you are amazing and the best trait you can have is confidence! I believe in you, you should believe in you too!

Television and reality programs made us girls think that we don't look good enough and that we too should look as good as they do. It makes us think so less of ourselves that we want to change the slightest marks or bit of extra skin we have. It makes us emotionally unstable, makes us get ride or hide our imperfections not knowing that our imperfections makes us unique in a beautiful way. Stop trying to change to make others happy, stop trying to change for these petty boys. Stop hurting yourself BC you can't look a certain way. Put on your favorite outfit and show off your body because YOU ARE PERFECT theunknown

Hi Springster. You're not alone. Every girl has felt unattractive at one point or another in their lives. You need to love yourself more than anyone else and know that you are unique, no one is you and that is your power. Tell yourself you are beautiful! Be kind to yourself boo and in that you will find true happiness!

Hi Springster. Don't be ashamed, a normal part of growing up is developing romantic and sexual feelings. It's not a problem for you to be curious about sex. If you feel as though this is distracting your day-to-day life and is not a curiosity but more of an addiction then you should speak to a professional. You can call Childline SA.

Hi bunny_twinny. Thanks for your comment. It's completely normal to feel unattractive sometimes but it's better to snap out of that negative thinking and recognize that we are queens and we are beautiful inside and out. We need to reinforce positive qualities about ourselves and say it to ourselves everyday. I AM BEAUTIFUL, I AM STRONG, I AM KIND, I AM COURAGEOUS. Write down ten positive qualities about yourself and say it out loud everyday!

Hi Monday. thanks for sharing your comment with us. We want you to know that you're not alone. People can be very mean and say things intentionally to hurt us and even if we ignore the negative comments it can still have a big impact on us. I would recommend you ignore it completely and realize that you are beautiful regardless of acne or what other people say. So let's focus on improving your skin and cutting out negative energy from your life. Put some fresh lemon juice on a cotton ball and rub it directly on the affected skin area. Allow it to dry and then wash it off with plain water. Continue applying this acne removal home remedy for at least two weeks to get the desired result. Also exfoliate your skin regularly and moisturize your face. Drinking lots of water can cleanse your skin from within. Eating less fatty and sugary foods and replacing it with fruits and veggies can also help! Good luck!

Hey springsters. Ive also been dealing with people telling me how ugly i look, how aweful i dress. This has been going on since primary school, no one would play with me, sit with me or anything.

Hi Oros192. I recommend you get yourself some new friends. Friends are supposed to encourage you, motivate and complement you instead of putting you down.

Here's a story to help boost your confidence http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-life/your-confidence-check/

Hi Leighseighdeigh. Thanks for sharing your comment, this must be a very difficult time for you.

Hi Moni. Thanks for sharing your comment. I think what you're feeling is a lack of confidence. You're beautiful and you need to remember that no one can take your confidence away from you. Believe in your beauty and your individuality and remember that what people have to say doesn't matter when you know the truth. You are YOU and that is your power. Embrace your beauty and never doubt it.

Hi Tee. Every person is different and different is beautiful. I believe that everything happens for a reason and our scars tell a story, they are what keeps us going. No matter what happens in our lives, God created each of us for a purpose and no scars nor pain can restrict that purpose from prevailing so be confident and know that you're not alone because God's got you. Take pride in yourself and show the world what you're good at. They'll focus on that rather than focussing on your beautiful and unique scars. I adore you because you're strong and you've lived with the scars for ten years now without taking your own life. You rely are a Phenomenal Woman.

Hi Luphiwo. Thanks for sharing your story, it's very mature of you to speak about your scars. I totally agree with Lwah " Take pride in yourself and show the world what you're good at. They'll focus on that rather than focusing on your beautiful and unique scars." Know that if you realise how beautiful you are then no one can take that away from you. You need to realise your beauty, inside and out. Scars are an indication of strength, that you were able to overcome and that is amazing.

I Told Him What I Saw He Was Nice & Handsome Plus Clean Two Days Back We Were Playing A Game He Said I Wasnt Exactly What He Expected I Asked Him What He Meant,Said Nah Lets Leave It It Would Be Like I'm Discriminating Yuh Buh Remember That I Love Yuh & Yuh In My Heart . I've Been Over-Thinking I Got A Big Nose & The Rest Is Nice/Great What Did He Mean By He Doesn't Want To Be Like He Is Discriminating Me?

He meant exactly that, he had his own expectations about you, that's what online interactions do, we build our own person in our heads and when we don't get to see the person we wanted and expected, we get disappointed. And that in itself impacts a lot on our feelings towards that person, after a while we even start acting different towards them and end up either breaking things off or cutting all communication with the person. Expectations come with a lot of disappointments. The nose that you refer to as "big" makes you you, it's a part of you, whoever likes/loves you genuinely,should love you the way you are, not because of what you look like or what you have, should you lose all of that,it means they'll stop loving you because what they initially loved you for is gone Your personality should shine through all the physical part of you and those who love you,will do so,inside and outside🙂

True beauty isn't in a shape of nose or your facial formation . it isn't the complexion of your skin or the shape of your body . True beauty is from your spirit . It means to be pleasant,adorable,glorious, and full of favour and grace. Dont get too concerned about your physical body looks or you may see something u dont like. dont wish you were someone else for God doesn't copy of you. Nobody in the world has ever been or will be exactly like you. Nobody Nobody smiles the more beautiful than u see, for you look like your heavenly father. The next time u look at yourself ,instead of wishing u were someone else or feel bad about yourself,look on the inside,there is something better on the inside You are Beautiful as u are!! The greater who is in u than the one who is in the world😍!

Hey, Rose thanks for your comment. You are beautiful and that's why you're receiving so many compliments. It's time that you see in yourself what others have seen in you. You can try this exercise: look in the mirror and say 3 nice things about yourself every morning. It will be hard at first but it will get easier and easier. And before you know it you will see what an awesome person you are.

Sometimes I'm told the same things and I feel the same way... but I always try to belive what good things people say about me and you should too😗

hey springsters, I have lack of confidence with my body simply because I feel as though I have a small butt, and people tend to make fun of me because of that. I'm tired of feeling like this. is there any ways to get bigger butt naturally? I'm tired of being teased about my butt. its humiliating. at 18 I think we're supposed to be comfortable with our bodies but for me its impossible :(

hy dear it begin's with self acceptance and self appreciation having small butt it does not mean you not beautiful, pleasing ppl won't groom your spirit so dear rise up and tell yourself that you are beautiful than before

Hello,Girl one thing you must do you must start believing in yourself and be perfect in your own imperfections.Nobody is perfect and we as human beings we were born with different body shapes from head to toes.I myself have a tiny body,I hear that comment almost everyday that I have a small butt and to me it simply a joke I just laugh at my teasers.Why?First of all I accepted the way I am and having a small butt is nothing to be ashamed of.So don't pay too much attention to them.Hope this might help...

No problem favourite, it's our pleasure😉.

I'm trying so hard to accept myself the way I am. But being reminded of the features I dislike about myself almost everyday is straining. I have 3 sisters, they are all short just like our mother. And I'm the tallest, about the same height as my dad. They are all shoe size 4 and I'm a size 6. I just feel like I don't belong there and sometimes they make jokes about my appearance... it's just too much. So most of the time I isolate myself from them.

Hi Springster, it's really important to understand that although looking different is hard, it's really not a bad thing. Some short people wish they were taller and some tall people want to be shorter. We have to remember that it's really important to be comfortable in ourselves and our own bodies. This obviously doesn't happen in an instant and it will be something that will take time. Part of the journey of confidence is being able to surround ourselves with people who understand us and don't make us feel bad about who we are or what we look like. You should consider talking to you loved ones on a deep and honest level by telling them how sensitive you are to their comments and how you are being affected. Maybe they'll understand. Don't forget to get a hold of us again and tell us how everything worked out.

Hello , I got so many pimples in my face that refuses to go away . When I look in the mirror it feels like my whole world has fallen down . I have Low self-esteem and have difficulties in building my self to grow and understand myself . I know beauty is within us but whenever I look at my face I feel sad . What should I do ?

Hey Shantal, it's so hard being a teenager. Puberty can be rough on us and pimples can be so annoying. We've placed two links in this comment to two articles that might help you with treating pimples. Just copy and paste them in your search browser: http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-body/bye-bye-pimples/ and http://za.heyspringster.com/sections/my-body/domestic-goddess/ You might also want visit a skin care shop and explain the issue you are having to an assistant or skin care specialists. They will be able to help, but please also remember that pimples are normal at this stage of your life so don't give yourself a hard time about it.

I also have that problem😳 it hurts... I can't even take a picture with my friends because I know I won't look good

Nothing beats communication, just confront him and ask exactly what his problem is.

Peacefully greetings to you all,I go by the name of Kefiloe but i love calling myself queen kay it just keeps me going. I am new here but i thought i would just share this with y'all. I remember when i was in primary i was so confident and never shy, i would always compete with myself though it was hard. I took many extra mural activities like netball, drama, book quiz, spelling bee, debate and so forth because like i said i loved challenging myself and i never realised that i was actually creating the best in me. Then time came when i had to leave primary, i left with so many awards that i couldn't hold them with my both hands, the feeling was great i can assure you. Trust me after that, life was not that fun and interesting no more it was sad and more challenging that i lost my self confidence,esteem,respect and dignity. I started hanging out with the wrong friends and ended up doing things that i am still not proud of today. Until i tried so hard to change my life and i did even though am not the same great person i was but trust me i changed to be the greatest than ever and the journey was not easy at all. Because of me deciding to change i lost friends and most people lost interest in me due to the person i have decided to become. My life was better and i regained my self confidence, respect, dignity and esteem even worse i became the best person i could ever ask for. I am not saying i am now perfect i still struggle there and there but trust me i always pick up my self at the end of the day because i always remind myself that if i don't stand up for myself then who will? The morale of the story is to never give up, never give people the authority to bring you down, appreciate yourself just the way you are because if you don't no one will, always bring out the best in you and don't forget to pray! It is not going to be easy but once you tell yourself that you can do it trust me you will just don't give up and remember to love and respect yourself in all aspects. Love: Kefiloe

Hey Springster, you should only have sex when you want to, and when you are ready to; this is when you are able to give your consent. Sex must not be forced. Whether it’s your bae, your friends or anyone else, no one is allowed to pressure you into having sex.

Yes this is true we are all beautiful nd special in our own unique ways😊I remember growing up was so hard for me since I'm gracefully blessed with a blue eye like birthmark pple gave me multiple stares nd names nd to top it up my own mother never liked my complixion she use to say I'm too dark until I got to a stage were I started looking at myself differently nd seeing beauty nd dat was after high school I realised dat my birthmark made me who I was nd dats why i stood out couse I'm unique nd beautiful nd dat my complixion also didn't define me. Now I know I'm beautiful nd is very much happy with myself nd proud so girls please remember self-love is very important.

I love myself for who I am. I've been teased a lot during my school years but after I stood up for myself I realized that without confident I wouldn't be able to take action against those who thought they have gained control over my life.

Well girl ,you see no voice can shout louder into your ears than yours but if you decide to listen to what they say and/think of you ,you allow them to take over your confidence ,I tell you learn to love and appreciate who you are and face the incoming words towards you so they will stop hunting you,if you show how much love you have for yourself your sisters too well learn to appreciate that and accept that you love yourself just the way you are 😍💙💜after all its your body is your beauty and expression

Everyone is beautiful. No matter what.. Plz everyone please 🙏 🙏 love ur self

I don't feel beautiful at all..I feel like I'm the most ugliest girl ever...I don't feel comfortable in my skin and I don't like my completion.. Some people say I'm pretty and I actually try to believe that but I don't.. I sometimes use skin products to lighten my skin and now my face is ruined.. I feel worse than I did before and now I don't know what to do..I just hate myself..😫😫

Hi SPHEE Self-love is something that we should all do. At times we feel as if we are not beautiful but we forget that people are not the same. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Talking to someone close to you will help. It can be a teacher, guardian or anyone you trust. In order to remind yourself write notes and read them every day. Write things such as "I am beautiful and enough". We hope this helps Springster.

I know I'm beautiful, I just hate how my teeth are.. I can't even take pictures with my teeth out. It's a struggle for meto laugh out loud as my friends does when we are together. It sometimes ruins my day hey

March 20, 2022, 8:54 p.m.

I feel like I'm the most unattractive being on Earth because I got the uggliest teeth😭😭...Yaas you have to be strong and act brave but deep down it's hurting me cause everyone around and close to me have nice teeth...Whenever I laugh I quickly remember that and look around to check if anyone noticed my teeth😭😭💔.If I see someone just laughing I assume they laughing at me and start to have a low-self esteem😭😭😭😭💔💔

March 20, 2022, 8:54 p.m.

I am beautiful indeed I feel so much better now after reading this message...I also had a problem with my nose I did not like it at first but now I am confident enough to say I am beautiful
