Mirror Mirror On The Wall!

YOU are Beautiful

 

Everyone has days where you are not feeling your beautiful self! Your self-Image is off! Maybe someone said something to you that made you feel like you are not worth it. I know this happens everyday. At some point throughout life, most people have had an experience with a bully. Growing up I had a boy that my sister and I rode the school bus with everyday, he was always mean to us both because my mom would walk us to our bus stop. He would always say that we were babies and stupid because we had mommy walking with us. We were in Elementary School, maybe 3rd or 4th grade. Then he use to tease my sister about her weight, calling her a hippo and saying she was fat.  My sister was very shy so she would never say anything but maybe shut up!

Well, one day I had enough of the bullying! I told him off! I said to him that at least I had a mom who cared about us enough to make sure that we got onto the bus safely! Nothing was sad back! Maybe he didn’t have parents that cared enough! He never bothered us again and then started being nice to both of us!

I know that bullying happens more and more these days! Why does it seem to be happening more now a days then when I was a kid? Is social media to blame and does it make bullying that much easier? Cyber bullying happens everyday to a lot of people!! I even saw that Mariah Carey was being bullied about her weight. Saying she looked like a whale and needed a diet! REALLY? That is just so horrible! These people are cowards that sit behind a computer spewing horrible things!

Its a question I ask myself daily as my 12 year old niece is getting bullied by what she thought was her friend! How can kids be so cruel to each other?

 Let NO one make you feel less

I’m not an expert, never will I claim to be one but I think some may be because what they see at home or more peer pressure from other kids! In my opinion, if a child hears this type of talk towards other people, don’t you think they will just follow in the foot prints of the parents? I know my kids repeat everything we say! We are always cautious of how we talk especially towards other people! My oldest knows about bullying somewhat from talks we have. Since he is home-schooled, he’s not around it just yet! I never want to see my kids bullied or be the bully as with every other parent!!

We teach our kids that everyone is different! Growing up in a Christian home, we let our kids know that God has given them the qualities that they possess. They should never let anyone, including theirselves to think poorly about them!

I know I have always struggled with body image and the mirror is not my best friend! I have been told I am ugly and a nobody and believed it! We tend to let what others say to us reflect how we see ourselves!! I know I am guilty of this! I try May hardest not to let my kids hear my bad self-talk! That is one thing I am working on in myself to improve!

One of my favorite songs is by Barlow Girls! It’s called Mirror! If you have never heard it before, you must listen to it!!  The lyrics go like this:

“Mirror, Mirror on the wall, Have I got it?
‘Cause Mirror you’ve always told me who I am
I’m finding it’s not easy to be perfect
So sorry you won’t define me
Sorry you don’t own me

Who are you to tell me
That I’m less than what I should be?
Who are you? Who are you?
I don’t need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won’t try, I won’t try

Mirror I am seeing a new reflection
I’m looking into the eyes
of He who made me
And to Him I have beauty beyond compare
I know He defines me (Yeah)

Who are you tell me
that I’m less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you? (Yeah)
I don’t need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won’t try, no, I won’t try

You don’t define me (You don’t define me)

Who are you to tell me
That I’m less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you?
Yeah!
I don’t need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won’t try, no, I won’t try
Yeah

Who are you to tell me
That I’m less than what I should be
Who are you?
Who are you?
Yeah
I don’t need to listen
To the list of things I should do
I won’t try, no, I won’t try”

No matter what you may think you look like, or what someone else may say about you, know that you are beautiful just the way you are! Everyone has flaws, things that they don’t like about them, know this! It may be hard to understand but you are! No one should ever make you feel less than what you are!
