Alex Durog / Twitter

We all have those days where we look in the mirror and judge ourselves harshly.

Whether it’s a sudden break out of spots or the ever-present process of ageing, we’re all our own worst critics.

But an inspiring Twitter thread by Alex Durog, written for her girlfriend to mark their anniversary, challenges our narrow perception of beauty.

In the heartfelt dedication, Durog explains to her girlfriend all the ways that she is beautiful that she is unlikely to see in a mirror - such as the expressions she makes in certain situations.

The thread, which has been shared thousands of times, might just make you feel better about yourself in the moments of self doubt that we all have.

As the thread went viral, people responded saying how inspiring and impactful Durog's words are.

Excuse us, we've got something in our eye.
