Dear Blind Girl, I Know How It Feels

Dear blind girl,

You aren’t alone. There are lots of girls like you. You look around the room. All you see are girls that are beautiful. See those girls that walk around like they own the world or have it all? Well, guess what? They don’t have it all. No one does. Those girls may be beautiful. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. People say that because it’s true. Flowers and fairy lights are both beautiful. They are very different things. Yet, they both have beauty. That plays out true for people too.

You don’t have to compare yourself to anyone else to be pretty.

You walk around and see all these girls with their perfect hair and makeup. Well, guess what? They don’t look like that naturally without all that makeup. No girl looks perfect. Do you know why that is that way? There is no one definition of perfect. Perfect is different to everyone that has a thought in their head. Some girls see perfect as getting all the boys. That’s not what beauty means. And dear blind girl, please don’t let a boy tell you how to look. A boy will tell you to change everything about yourself to please him. Don’t. The right boy will tell you not to change a thing. You are perfect the way you are. No one has a right to demean you for your appearance.

You are you, and you don’t need anyone’s approval.

You may not be the girl that always has a boyfriend. It is okay to be alone. Some people actually prefer it to a relationship. You may not be the girl that has lots of likes on her selfies on Instagram. There are some girls that always have a date. That doesn’t have to be you. You may not be the girl that gets married before she turns twenty-two.You may be the girl that has never been in a relationship. That is okay. You may not be the world’s version of the girl that everyone wants.

Dear Blind Girl, she doesn’t exist.

You don’t need to be that girl. Blind girl, you are beautiful. You are special. You don’t need Instagram, dates, or anyone to tell you that you are beautiful.

Dear blind girl, remember your worth. You are important. You are in charge of your life. No one else gets to say how you look or what makes you special. Blind girl, beauty isn’t all about how you look. Beauty is something that comes from you.

If you love telling jokes, then your beauty will come from your laugh and smile. Beauty is how you treat others. Even if you look like a model, you can still be ugly. Be nice.

Beauty is something that you have blind girl. Beautiful girls don’t see their own beauty. You don’t see inside yourself in a mirror. Blind girl, beauty comes from the inside. You aren’t beautiful because someone tells you that you look good.

Beauty isn’t beautiful because you get likes on social media. You are beautiful because you love to be yourself. You are beautiful because you don’t let people tell you how to be you. Don’t let anyone dull your sparkle even when you feel dirty.

Dear blind girl, don’t let the world get you down. Be yourself. Love yourself. You are beautiful.

Signed,

A girl that used to be blind
