Perceptions: Things I wish I would have known when I was fifteen.

All right young ladies, I want you to sit back and think about the most popular, beautiful, seems to have-it-all girl in your class.  Can you picture her?  The flowing locks, dazzling smile, a rockin’ bod that looks perfect in everything.  Have you ever thought to yourself, “Man it must be great to be her.”  Or better yet, “If only I could be her—things would be easier.”  Don’t you believe it.  All women have insecurities and trials in their lives—even this so-called vision of perfection.  And if she’s reading this right now, she’d whole heartily agree.  The popular are criticized, the shy overlooked, the flirts seen as less than virtuous, the list is endless.  Don’t wish for someone else’s life.  You’ll miss the fabulous one that’s right in front of you.  How fabulous—is up to you.
