Charlie starts complimenting a girl she sees on her father's phone camera and is surprised when she learns that it is her own image.
Children are the most innocent and genuine beings in the world. The things that they feel are reflected on their faces as is. Though they could be the most self-confident creatures in the world, sometimes they also need a bit of a push. Funnily enough, this push can also come from themselves, as proven by Charlie. Charlie loves giving compliments so much that she often does not stop to consider who exactly is in front of her. In a video posted by her dad Austin Miles Geter - who goes on TikTok by @austingeter - she quite literally forgot the way she looked, which led to a heartwarming realization on her part that she is pretty.
Words of affirmation can do magic. Therefore, it is essential that no one ever holds back on the good they want to say to others. People should adopt what Charlie did. She opens her father's phone camera, sees someone and compliments them most adorably.
The moment Charlie opened the camera, she saw a very beautiful girl. Therefore, she immediately told her, "You look so pretty." She started to repeat the compliment, hoping for an answer from the opposite side. Just then, her father listened to her daughter's talking. He could not understand who exactly his daughter was talking to, as there was no one in the room except them two. He asked her, "What girl?" Charlie adorably replies, "That girl, on your phone."
The father laughed as he figured out the whole situation. He made her understand, "That's you, Charlie." The girl Charlie was looking at on the phone was none other than herself. In a heartwarming manner, she realized that "she is beautiful." This moment is crucial, as 59% of girls around the world suffer from body image issues, according to the National Organization for Women. As they grow up, they have to contend with unwanted comments, which disturb their own view of themselves. Hence, such a moment of realization while growing up has a huge value.

The "beauty" is ultimately in the eyes of the "beholder." This video clearly shows that if someone wants to look at something with a critical eye, they will always find something wrong. But, when someone like Charlie looks at someone with nothing but love, they will come to the most adorable conclusion. Hence, girls should learn to treat themselves with kindness, love and adoration, like Charlie treats herself after the realization. It is evident by the confident "yeah" she says to her father when he asks, "Do you think you are really pretty?"
The comments section was filled with admiration for the little girl. @allisonrochester20 loved the attitude displayed by Charlie, "Self-confidence without even knowing I love it." @clairsentient8 appreciated Charlie's intentions in the video, "What is so sweet is that she thought she was telling someone else how pretty they were. Hyping another little girl up." @phoebermcc quips what Charlie's reaction must have been, "This is such great news for me!"
