I am writing this piece of article as an encouragement to my self of who I am. Also, I would like to dedicate this to all the beautiful daughter of CHRIST who have been through all kinds of negative impact by this world. I had had introduce the fear that I have within myself by a post “It’s OK not to be OK” last year when I first realized and would be able to see my natural beauty made my God. I have learnt there’s nothing wrong just to be different from others. Everyone on this earth had nothing in common in each other or share the same genetic. We are one of a kind designed by the creator of this universe.
I am struggle dealing with worthiness of life. My body image becomes one of the weakness I have encountered. I am afraid that my size would be the barrier of any kinds of communication and misunderstanding. I am worried that I won’t be accepted by the majority because I have different kinds of taste of food, habit and lifestyles. I have got to go by own way of interests. As pretending to be someone else, it doesn’t last long. There is a time that you will show the true you. Therefore, I am not in the comfort zone of copying other.
It happened last week when I had to smile and accepted all kinds of word teasing me that I am A Fat Girl. When I reached my hand to get the food, they cut by saying you could not eat because you are fat. When I went to bed early, they said no wonder I am Fat because I slept a lot. When I ate sweet, they said fat people always love sweet things. There is no way that you can lose even a pound. I would like to ask you what do you feel if people at the dining table saying that you are fat and you should not eat? I was deeply thank that they care about me and my size.
However, what kind of characteristic are these? Are these the model to help girl grow independent and love themselves as who they are? Are teasing the good ways to help people lose weight? Are theses voice rebuking you as a person who is unique and loved by God? I wonder how do they see fat people? What do their heart say about being fat and being judge? What’s the definition of beautiful girl? How do they find beauty in themselves? by heart or body?
I am confront to believe my family when people say I am beautiful when other say I am not. I started to be shaken by the voices of insecurities and felt like I am like the Clown Fish which everyone laugh at you even you are not funny (Just because I am a clown fish). Please stop judging woman by their look.
“Beauty and Goodness do not define by your appearances. Stand up and use your differences shines through you!”
Let’s believe of God says who you are. Whatever people says about you is not true. God says you are beautiful (Psalm 45:11) and unique (Psalm 139:13) so stop afraid of being who you are. You are loved (Jer.31:13) and Special (Eph:2:10) because you are created with purpose (Jer.29:11). You are lovely (Dan.12:3) and cared for (Eph:3:17, 18, 18). You are precious because you are his masterpiece (1-Cor.6:20). You are strong (Ps.18:35) and important to him (1-Pet2:9). You are forgiven (Ps103:12) so do not live in your past and sin. You are a new creation (2-Cor.5:17) because you are born again by the grace of God. You are his children so you are protected (Ps.121:3) and chosen as his family (Eph.2:19). You are empowered (Phil.4:13)and you are his(Is43:1).
With God’s Love,
