"Every individual has the right to feel and look beautiful. The reflection staring back from the mirror should evoke feelings of love, admiration, and acceptance. It's essential to embrace one's imperfections since no one is perfect.
However, people often get caught up in their deficiencies, and in doing so, they tend to forget the many wonderful things they possess."
