The pretty girl and the not-so-pretty one
6 months ago · · Stress,
I have two friends. The first one, Bella, lives in the mirror and sometimes in my phone’s front camera. She’s not perfect, but I think she’s very pretty. She has a gorgeous smile and a cute nose too. She is always looking into my eyes, reassuring me that everything is alright. She’s confident and beautiful and she knows that and she loves to encourage me saying “You are gorgeous!” or “You’re perfect just the way you are!”.
My other friend, on the other friend, is the opposite of Bella. I never asked her what’s her name because it scares me to think about her.
This friend lives in some of my pictures. She’s ugly and flawed. She usually doesn’t smile and when she does she’s even uglier. She always makes sure to tell me how imperfect I am and that everyone sees that.
Bella is very scared of her. When she appears, Bella runs away, hiding for some days.
“Bella, why are you afraid of her?” I asked Bella one day.
Bella looked at me with her gorgeous chocolate eyes.
“Because she’s stronger than me.” she replied.
“Because of you.”
I was confused. I couldn’t be the reason of her strength. I hate her.
“You give her power because you’re afraid of her too. When she appears, you forget about me. You can only think about her, letting her in your mind. You’re the only one who can make me stronger, not your friends or anyone else. If you can believe in me, I’ll always be there!”
