Mostly A’s – You’ve got a healthy self-esteem. You’re confident and happy with the girl you’ve become. You’re enjoying life to the fullest and letting God direct your path. Keep up the positive attitude, but be careful that you don’t become overly confident and cocky.

Mostly B’s – Your ‘I don’t care attitude’ is leading you down towards the path of insecurities and darkness. You’re sick and tired of the Barbie dolls out there and want to show a different attitude, but you’re going towards it the wrong way. Satan loves it when you’re careless in your life, because it means that you have neglected God as well. However, you still have time to get closer to God, love yourself again and take care of your appearance. Don’t waste time, start now!!!

Mostly C’s -   ALARM BELLS!!! You definitely have a low self-esteem. Unfortunately you’re heading down the miserable path to an eating disorder or worse. It’s sad that you believe the lies Satan is whispering in your ear. Feeling this way is very real to you, so don’t be afraid to seek professional help ASAP. Talk to someone you trust immediately, take God's hand and don’t let go.
