Pretty On The Outside She had it all: a sleek figure, a stunning face, and a pair of legs that seemed to go on forever. Everyone recognized her beauty but she herself never saw it. She had no self-confidence and viewed herself with scorn.

Her inner dialogue was full of self-deprecation and she often heard the cruel words of others echoing through her head. No matter how much people told her she was beautiful, she just couldn't believe it. She felt like the beauty on the outside obscured the person inside, so she kept to herself and tried to stay out of sight.

One day, however, something changed. A friend took her to a gallery where they were showcasing an artist's work which focused on showing beauty in its rawest form without judgement or criticism. It made her see that beauty can be so many different things and come from within instead of without.

Over time, as she continued to visit the gallery, her outlook began to shift from self-loathing to self-love. In looking at all the unique pieces in the gallery, she came to understand that everyone is beautiful in their own unique way - including her! She became more open and outgoing and eventually gained the confidence that had been missing for so long.
