Every young lady or woman has her own kind of beautiful, unfortunately some of the beauty is buried under physical and emotional traumas.
I want to encourage you that life can and will change as you change your thinking. Get rid of the negative thoughts and refuse to receive negative words from others. You can replace the bad thoughts with good thoughts, it takes time and practice but it can be done.
The caterpillar has four stages she has to go through before she becomes her own kind of beautiful (unfortunately a lot of us teen-girls and women identify only with the Caterpillar).
We too, can successfully transform into our own kind of beautiful. There will be stages we will have to enter into, but the end results will be far greater. You will discover the beautiful you, flying above your past mistakes and mishaps. Think about where you want to be in the next few months or years and start making plans. Take baby steps if you need to, but start planning.
Remember what Eleanor Roosevelt said, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.” Use wisdom and only share your plans with people you can trust to encourage you. You will feel sooooo much better about yourself!. Time will bring about a change-- why not a good change? DECIDE TO BELIEVE IN YOU and experience your own kind of beautiful.
