For all your Glee watchers, I don’t know if you caught last week’s episode but it really hit me and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it since. The whole message of that particular episode was just great. It was all about self-acceptance and seeing the beauty within yourself.
Wow. This song from that episode. What a message.
I have mentioned a time or two on the blog about dealing with hearing loss practically all my life and I wear a hearing aid.
I’ve had this for about a year or so now. It’s called a bone anchored hearing aid. As women, we want to feel beautiful. I’m just being honest when I say I still struggle with this.
Do I want to have to wear this thing? No.
Do I want to hear? Yes.
It’s so easy to feel unpretty when you compare yourself to other girls. I often struggle with wondering if I’ll ever find a guy who will love me, all of me, and accept me with all of my flaws.
I’m not fishing for compliments of “Oh, you’re so beautiful Lauren” and etc. I’ve never considered my hearing loss a disability but rather something I’d just have to overcome and believed that somehow God would use this in my life.
I’m just like any other girl, and as women we struggle with insecurities and those insecurities come in all different forms.
Whether you frequent this blog or just reading for the first time….. I’m here to say, whatever you are dealing with or may have dealt with in the past, don’t ever let anyone or anything make you feel unpretty.
When I have those thoughts, I have to realize they are a flat out lies from the enemy.
You may never know how God may use a situation. I’d really love to one day learn sign language and help the hearing impaired.
We have a big God, and he can use us in big ways, and he will NEVER see us as unpretty!
