I know this video has been making the rounds but I really wanted to share it here just in case you have not seen it. It really highlights the disparity in how we see ourselves and how others see us. We tend to judge ourselves, personality or features much critically than others do. We tend to see flaws where they see beauty. Watch the video to the end. It’s just about 3 minutes in length and there is a powerful message to at the end you will only catch if you follow the video from start to finish. Just so you know, you’re more beautiful than you think!
Are you critical of your features? Do you see flaws? Has this video inspired you to re-think the way you see yourself? Let me know.
