After reading, “You’re Beautiful” in the October issue, I was left with a total sense of understanding and hope. I have a friend who is going through a similar situation and this article helped me understand how to continue supporting her through her insecurity. It’s amazing how many people hate the way they look and feel they can’t live up to others’ expectations. I hope one day all these people will understand that being or doing the best they can will always be enough. They shouldn’t feel so pressured to be someone they aren’t.
