I've struggled with this, and I think every teenage girl struggles with these issues, and I'm not alone.

It was that one Sunday morning when I noticed it. 

I was getting ready for church; doing my daily routine of what to wear to impress others, which hair style to pull off, and how to put on the stupid necklace that I always had trouble with.  Finally after the hundredth time of squirming to attach the necklace, I gave up and threw it against my dresser. I looked at myself in the mirror and noticed something was different about me; It wasn’t the pimple on my nose, It wasn’t the makeup on my face that I try to impersonate as a clown, and it wasn’t the fact of that leftover oat meal between my front top teeth. No it had something to do with the whole girl in the mirror. I study her really hard, and for the first time notices that I don’t see me in her.  Instead I see a girl who keeps on rebelling, and is showing her dark side.  The one she has hidden inside for so long that it’s now gotten to the point where it’s been making others think that she has issues.I study her a little more, and see the blood and marks on her arms that she committed later that night.  I don’t like this girl in the mirror, not one bit.  I wish I can clean the painful wounds on her arms with some hope that maybe that she will stop before it’s too late, I wish I can clean the sinful makeup on her face with some other beauty treatments for her soul,  and most of all I wish I can see the real me. 

I don’t see her anymore; she used to be this honest, compassionate, forgiving girl; which everyone loved.  But now, she’s not in the mirror.  I want to throw some sort of rock at the mirror, but know better not to.  I study her more and realize, I need to clean her up.  It’s time to say goodbye to her, and say hello again to the real me.I know I can’t do this on my own, that I will need help from others, but mostly from Jesus.
