well my little love, it goes something like this. some people will try to make you feel like you should look a certain way in order to be beautiful. they’ll do everything they can to make you believe that if you don’t look that way, you aren’t valuable or important or wanted.
but this is a lie. you already are beautiful. every single thing about you is beautiful, from the freckle above your nose to the wrinkles on your knees. and you are very important. to me and dad, to grandma and grandpa, to your friends at school, to your teachers.
those bad people are just trying to distract you from being something great. your greatness scares them. those “oppressive beauty standards” are there to keep you focused on everything that you are not (and nobody is, sweetie) instead of all the wonderful, powerful things that you are.
now go out there and show em you’re in charge, ok?
