We Really Need To Start Believing We Are Beautiful.
Imagine your reaction when someone points a camera at your face. You watch as the flash goes off. You panic, you duck your head, throw a hand up, and delete it after you see it.
We walk around blind, unable to see our own beauty and even worse, unable to believe it when others call us beautiful.
We feel awkward, we look away, we cover our face because we are afraid if anyone looks too close they will realize they were wrong, our flaws shinning though even the most artfully applied make up.
But thankfully 18-year-old student Shea Glover made it her mission to capture just how beautiful people are...the second they are told they are beautiful. Check out the amazing results below.
I don't know about you but this video had me smiling the entire time.
And it also made me wonder why we don't tell each other every day that we are beautiful. Or even more importantly, why we can't tell the mirror that.

So please don't ever forget, You Are Absolutely Beautiful.

What a great video! I'm so sad that so many didn't believe her and looked so shocked, but I understand it. I've had to really work on this specific issue. I don't know how to explain it. I believe it when my parents, brothers, or son say it (or at least I believe that they believe it, if that makes sense), but if anyone else says it, I tend to shake my head. In the case of guys, I wonder what they want. I'll literally say, "why...what do you want???" I don't think I realized how much I did it until someone pointed out that I was doing that to him on a regular basis and that he means it. So I've tried hard to turn that response into a simple, positive one: "thank you". I can't help but wonder Why this is how we react. My friends do the same thing - male and female. Why can we see the beauty in each other, but not in ourselves? Is it because we put so much more emphasis on our own flaws? I don't know the answers but I'd love to figure them out and pass on the message - to my son, my students, my friends and loved ones. (Sorry for thinking out loud in your comments, Liz! 馃挏)

Oh such a beautiful video and beautiful people! <3 But the way one of those girls was acting was NOT beautiful. That was horrible and uncalled for.

I see it, when the veil of cynicism and distrust was lifted from my eyes for a moment, I saw the truth, I saw how truly beautiful the people in the video are. I ignored the flaws, I saw the eyes, the smiles, the true happiness

Ugh. I can't believe I missed this before! This is so wonderful. I think (esp. in high school) kids really have a negative outlook on themselves. It was great to see some positivity here.
