She’s Not Prettier Than You

It can happen anytime, anywhere.

In the store as you casually stroll the makeup aisle. You know, on that day you decided that you wouldn’t see anyone you knew so you didn’t put on any makeup and your hair is in a messy ponytail.

When you’re out with your friends on that day you admitted that you didn’t look half bad and actually loosened up a little.

Or (and this is the worst) when you just spent three plus hours getting ready for a date. You picked out the perfect outfit. Your makeup is flawless. Your hair and skin decided to play nice with you. You were amazed at the gorgeous creature who stared back at you in the mirror. Your date was in awe…and you were in the middle of a wonderful dinner…

And then:

BAM.

You see her.  Some woman walks by who you are sure was sent by some nefarious being who has a grudge against you because why else at the exact moment in your life, when you decided it was okay to not wear makeup, that you didn’t look half-bad, or that you spent three stinkin’ hours shaving, plucking, flatironing, and practically beating yourself into beauty that even YOU had to admit to YOURSELF that you looked amazing (*deep breathe*)…would this stunning person walk in and RUIN IT ALL!!?

And…oh what’s that in a goopy, bullet-ridden puddle on the floor?

Oh yeah, your self-confidence.

That used to be my reaction too when I saw someone that I thought was prettier than me.

Not anymore thanks to a casual conversation with my best friend…who told me the most wonderful bit of logic ever.

I always wondered if my gorgeous best friend ever got self-conscious around women who she thought were prettier than her and how she handled it, so I asked her one day. She looked at me as if I had just spoken a foreign language, and said: “There aren’t any women prettier than me.”

I nearly choked and looked disapprovingly. “Way to be conceited,” I retorted. I mean, I and everyone on the free planet knew my BFF was gorgeous…but I didn’t know all that had gone to her head!

She giggled and said matter-of-factly, “It’s not being conceited. It’s a mindset. I will never think another woman is prettier than me. We are either equal in beauty, or she is less than me.  Never more.  No girl is prettier than you Dani…never think that.”

I nodded as if I understood, but I still didn’t get it. Not at that time.

But a few weeks later, it dawned on me.

I saw a beautiful girl. And jokingly repeated the mantra my friend said: She’s not prettier than me.  She’s as pretty as me. I’ll put her as an equal.

Then it dawned on me. The pure awesome logic of it all.

Think of all the people you admire. Not just beauty-wise— anyone. I admire Maya Angelou. Oprah. Nearly all the Victoria’s Secret Models, my mother…the list goes on and on.

Why do we admire people? Because, we aspire to be like them in some way.

Well, put those people on an equal level as you. Now you’re among the best.

YOU are not less than the people you admire or consider beautiful because if you notice (and admire) the greatness in other people… then you have that same greatness or can have that same greatness.

Yeah, it’s a little shocking to realize, isn’t it? It jarred my brain as well, at first.

But it’s a mindset.

Just as easy as you can think someone is better than you, you can think of them as an equal.

The only difference is: the latter builds you up, strengthens and hardens your confidence so that no one can crack it. So that it changes your whole perspective on everything you do and bathes it in a positive light.

So that when that person that tries to get inside of your head and tell you that you’re uglier than someone else; you can just smile because you know they don’t get it. And you can also smile because you know that person is definitely less than you are because of their ugly personality, which makes their opinion even more irrelevant.

So now I don’t suffer from self-confidence woes anymore in the face of a stunning woman. I am capable of acknowledging her beauty because by acknowledging hers…I must also acknowledge my own.

Meet Allie: Your HEALTH & FITNESS Editor♥

Hello Khloē Magazine Fans, Friends and Contributors — Meet Allie!


Meet Allie! She is the “H” to the Health & Fitness Khloē acronym. Looking to write for this section of our magazine? Shoot her an email at allie@khloemag.com

What made you want to be an editor for Khloē?
Khloē has (already) illuminated a missing niche in the magazine world — girls need a bright, honest, informative magazine full of energetic and motivational insights & guidance.

What is the one thing you can’t leave home without? 
This may sound ridiculous, but I carry a 50-pack of crayola silly-scent markers with me in my purse — I use them to write in my planner, or to relax and doodle. I love to saturate my life with color. 

Favorite food you could eat forever and not get sick of it?
Cereal — any & every kind. Endless Lucky Charms & soy milk in a very large bowl = my utopia. 

Favorite quote?  
"But it’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then." —Alice in Wonderland

Favorite summer memory?  
This summer. The good ole’ summer of 2011. I traveled to Seattle and fell in love with the city — it’s currently the smartest city in the world (the highest percentage of people with Bachelor’s Degrees)! They’re bike-friendly, and focused on the Earth and organic food. Everyone thinks “rain” when they hear Seattle, but all I think about is this charismatic energy, this overwhelmingly inspirational ambiance — a city built into mountains and surrounded by water, full of people that want to make a difference. I hope, someday, to be a part of a similar mission. This summer I gained a new aspiration — to surround myself with positive people who want to learn, grow, and achieve, and to be that kind of person for those around me.

Meet Meghan!

Khloē Magazine Fans, Friends, Contributors- Meet Meghan! 

Meghan is the ” E” to Khloē, she is representing EMPOWERMENT. You ladies will get to know her better this fall but for now, here is a preview of your Empowerment Editor, Meghan McAfee. 

 What made you want to come on as an Editor @ Khloē?  When I was about 13 or 14-years old, I remember sitting on my bedroom floor, reading a teenage-girls magazine, whose name I won’t mention.. The article I searched for promised tips on how to apply the perfectly lined eye, and once I located it in the magazine I came to a strange realization. The article consistently made mention of the eye’s “crease.” No matter how hard I stared in the mirror I could not find a crease in my Asian eyes. As a result, I spent a good part of my tween years believing there was something “wrong” with me because my eyes were “missing” an important part of its anatomy. 

The reason I wanted to work at KHLOE is directly related to that anecdote—no one should ever be made to feel badly about the thing that makes them different, makes them beautiful.

What is your favorite memory of college? I participated in a student organization called Grand Valley Dance Troupe; it is GVSU’s largest student organization, so I was able to meet a couple hundred amazing people while still keeping up with my favorite activity—dance! I was also given the opportunity lead the organization, for two years, which was a challenge I wouldn’t trade for anything.

What’s a quote you live by? “We tell ourselves stories in order to live.” by the great Joan Didion. Moreso than the literal meaning of the quote, the context is what inspires me because it represents a multitude of firsts: The essay that quote originated in—“The White Album”—was the first essay I had every read, in my very first creative writing workshop. It was also the first piece of writing that showed me what writing could be. Ever since, I find myself returning to Didion’s work for entertainment, inspiration, and education.

Food you’d never get sick of?  See, the hard part about this question is that I LOVE food. I love to cook, and I’ve never been a picky eater. But if I have to choose, the answer’s got to be mashed potatoes.

One thing you can’t leave home without?  Lipgloss, specifically that minty C.O. Bigelow stuff they sell and Bath & Body Works. I don’t know what they put in those tubes but I’m obsessed!

Love & KHLOE
