Hi boys.

“Would it get me to stop being upset by reminding me that men still find me attractive, that I still have some kind of worth in this world, as judged by others? There are so many other, more tangible things to tell me about myself.

I don’t want my own beauty to be some kind of escape from the real problems of my life — the ones that beg real solutions and real work. I don’t need you to validate these things with my skin, or my hair, or my bone structure. I was doing just fine before that, even if I thought I was ugly.”

I’m not generalizing, though. I’m just saying it’s true in some cases. And it’s something girls should think about.
