You can spend all your time and money changing parts of your body that you dislike, or you could invest both your time and money into truly living. Life is short and time waits for no one. Stop being unhappy and embrace your individuality.
After my confidence grew for a year, a few days ago I allowed myself to slip back into thinking that I need to change something about myself. My nose. I hate it, I absolutely despise it. ‘No guy will like me because of it’, ‘I’ll never feel pretty because of it’. Then I remember how far I’ve come. How much my confidence has grown. I went from not being able to find a single thing that I liked about my body to only being able to pin point one thing that I didn’t particularly like. If someone were to dislike me simply because of one feature on my not so bad looking face then I don’t want to be associated with them anyway.
As one of my friends told me, ‘everyone has something they don’t like about themselves, it’s just human nature’.
Well, I say f**k you human nature, I’ve had enough of thinking that I need to look perfect to be beautiful. That in order to find a nice guy I’ve got to be perfect. I’m happy being perfectly imperfect and it’s good enough for me.
Learn to love yourself because you’re beautiful just the way you are. Wonky teeth, crooked nose, fat legs, thin legs. Whatever, you’re perfect just the way you are.
Apologies for the deep post and the lack of posts, I’ve been busy but I’ll be sure to post a few more of these little ‘just a thought’ blogposts as a little series so look out for them!
