Teens Helping Teens Change the Language of Mental Health


Confidence and self worth are essential in order to feel beautiful. I already know that every single one of you is beautiful (there is no doubt in my mind about that), but feeling that way is not always as easy as it sounds. When I was in 7th grade, I struggled with accepting myself. I once told my teacher that I hated myself, and I could tell that he was very upset to hear that. That was how I felt, though. I didn’t want to be myself because I didn’t feel like I was beautiful both inside and outside. As time went on, I learned the value of confidence and self worth. I may not be the most confident person in the world. I may not realize the importance of self worth at every moment, but I can acknowledge that I am a child of God who deserves respect from everyone which includes myself. Learning to love yourself and respecting yourself will make a huge difference in feeling beautiful. Those were the first steps I took to get me to the place I am today. I even took my experiences of struggling with feeling beautiful and loving myself, and I wrote a song about it. It’s called Beautifull Of Love. We are beautiful and we are all full of love. That is the message I want to send. Take it from me, I went from hating everything about myself to finding the beauty in myself every day. It’s possible and it’s important. When the song comes out in a few months, come back to this blog and see how far you’ve come. Little steps can create huge progress!
