Society defines pretty as an attractive face or a nice body. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be “pretty” and to be the it girl or stand out from others but we will always be the same. We look on TV or in a magazine and see such beautiful women and men, and we think “why can’t I be like that?”. But the truth of the matter is, they are no different than you. That girl in class who’s sense of style you envy, envies another girls hair. Earlier today I watched a YouTube video called ‘How to be pretty’ by hellokaty. She says in the video how we can change the definition of pretty. The video is extremely inspiring and I recommend everyone watch it. Anyways her video opened my eyes to something I didn’t see as such a big deal, but it is. Society has lead people to believe that to be pretty is to be confident and life will be easier, but that is so far from the truth. To be pretty is to be able to see someone else’s beauty and not feel lesser because of it. To be pretty is to be able to look at yourself and say I may not look like a model but I am strong, beautiful and no one can change that. From now on I will live by this.
