Don't listen to the voices that whisper in your ear:
"You've lost it."
Beauty doesn't work like that. It doesn't have an age and, if it did, what would it be? Who would decide and why? What a ridiculous lie we've all been fed. Beauty isn't a set of physical standards, it's a way of existing in the world.
Your beauty is the energy you carry on the inside. It's in your laughter, your light, and the impact you make on people's lives. Your true beauty is found in how you make others feel and how you contribute to the world. Everything else is a social construct, created for the purpose of keeping you down, making you consume, and reminding you of your presumed place within society.
You are beautiful and that doesn't diminish with age. It only grows with every passing year, and every lesson learned.
You are beautiful.
Don't listen to the voices.
