A certain level of understanding / by Michael Dunn

Not everyone I work with is comfortable in their skin. Some don't see themselves as beautiful, feminine or attractive. There is one attribute I feel that the majority want or are looking for is confidence.

That ability to look in the mirror and say "I got this" or "Screw them, I'm fabulous" but society and our peers have a wicked way of beating some of us into submission. Trying to help someone in that situation is never easy and never a quick fix.

Being told you're different can have bad connotations but that's what makes us unique and life less boring. We are sponges from the day we are born till the day die and we all see beauty differently. We are beautiful to some and not all and that's ok.
