So instead of looking at my face in the mirror,
instead I look for a reflection of love in those beautiful loved ones around me.
And I listen to them say so sweetly,
"You look beautiful."
And I believe them.
I believe them that I am beautiful,
but mostly I believe that they think I'm beautiful.
Frankly, it's not so much that I'm actually beautiful,
it's that I'm beautiful to them,
that's what means the most to me.
To me, knowing they think I'm beautiful
counts a lot more than my own opinion of me
after seeing myself in the mirror.

we have to look away from ourselves
to see just how beautiful we are.

  2. haha, aww, you're too good to me. I'm sure I don't deserve it. I can't help but love you, either.
