Why I will not Tell my Daughter She is Beautiful

My friend shared this quote with me two days ago, and it touched my soul to its core. The message is so full of depth and in my opinion truth, that it is all I am going to share today…

  1. This is beautiful


    • I know I thought so too 🙂 Thanks for reading


  2. Very good reasons, and in my opinion, they still need to be told they are beautiful inside and out, along with being complimented on their other good qualities.


    • Yeah I know what you mean, I think it’s just a matter of teaching them that they are beautiful whether anyone tells them that or not (I wish I had learned that from a younger age 🙂 Thanks for readng

    I agree 🙂 What makes me sad however is to see a lot of successful women & girls out there who completely underestimate their abilities and are fully dependent on others to make them feel more appreciated and beautiful. I believe every one is beautiful, we just can’t hide it from the world ❤


    • I know exactly what you mean! It’s so sad how it is very easy to become dependent on other people (especially a guy) to tell you how beautiful you are. Your comment has such truth, thanks for sharing 😀
