Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Beautiful! Do You Have Pretty Girl Problems?
All of us want to feel beautiful, and we all should believe that we are – no matter what we look like. I’m not talking about the airbrushed, magazine standard of beauty. I’m talking about the “comfortable in my own skin – inside out” type of beauty. However, this confidence shouldn’t be confused with arrogance or entitlement. Some of us have been told that we’re beautiful for as long as we can remember, thus our general vision of ourselves is based on what is reflected around us by other people. As flattering as that may be, some women may develop what has been called Pretty Girl Syndrome, which involves confusing your identity with your appearance – basing everything that you are on what you look like. After all, if EVERYONE says you’re beautiful, it MUST be true, right? There is nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance, but at what point does this become an obsession to the point where you believe you have “pretty people problems”? Not sure? If the following is you, you may have Pretty Girl Syndrome.
