My nose. My eyes. These are the two features of my being that I hated the most. It was repulsive to see the nose with no arch and eyes with no folding lids. I hated my parents for it. I hated myself for it. But everything is different now. He’s shown me how to love. He’s shown me things so much greater than just looks. I don’t need go under a knife to be beautiful. All I need is Him. Now I can wake up and look in the mirror and smile.
"You are one lucky girl, Esther Yi."
And one day, I’ll meet someone who can look past my imperfections and love me like He does.
It’s amazing how your perspective can change about everyone else when you change your perspective about yourself.
