Making It In High Heels

Inspiring Stories by Women for Women of All Ages

Hey guys, it’s Virginia here! I hope you’ve all had a great week.

I just finished Maria Panopalis’ story, and I feel I can relate greatly. Maria’s story is about her constant battle with acne as a teen, and how it helped shape her into the strong woman she is today. I think any woman could relate to this story, because everyone has felt insecure about some aspect of their appearance at least once. Whether it be a bad hair dayor a gross pimple on my nose, I’ve had days when I thought, “Ew, I cannot go out looking like THIS!” And although the ones who love us dearly try and convince us that “looks just don’t matter”, everyone cares about looks to a certain extent. It would nice to always have perfect hair, or perfect skin, or a perfect body; but life doesn’t work that way, unless you’re some type of superwoman!

I know that I’ll always feel insecure about the way I look, but I’ve learned to focus on more important things. Like my friends, or schoolwork, or my music. By focusing on other aspects of your life and not obsessing over your looks, it just seems more attractive. The people I find the sexiest, are the ones who have a great sense of humor and a vibrant personality. Not the ones who are always looking into a mirror, or care more about how they look then the people who are right in front of them. When you live in a society solely focused on looks, you need to stand out - but I’m not talking about hair or clothes this time, I’m talking about a radiant personality.

Hope I gave you something to think about,
Virginia (:
