As Julia got ready for school, she looked in the mirror and felt really insecure about herself.
All of the other girls at school are beginning to wear makeup, but I don't. Is that why boys don't talk to me? Do people think I'm weird?
Hi Julia. I know this may seem random, but I just wanted to tell you that I think you look really beautiful today. Your shirt really makes your eyes pop and your smile can brighten any room.
Dad! Today this boy at school told me that I was beautiful, even though I don't wear makeup like all of the other girls.
Well sweetheart, makeup isn't what makes you beautiful. You should love yourself the way that you are. Not only that, but it's what's on the inside that truly make a person beautiful, things like kindness, respect, compassion, love...
