It is going to be a big blog. I am writing my heart out about how I feel about body confidence, self-love, and much more.
I just want to let you guys know that I am not perfect, no one is. And whenever you feel ashamed of your own body, remember that you were born with it. You are different. You were meant to be different.
I have been through a phase when I was basically ashamed of my outer appearance but then I realized that it is the inner appearance that matters. This was the time when I stood up for myself and started embracing myself.
I know it is hard for many of us to be confident in our own bodies and all thanks to Instagram and it’s “Perfect” body/face thing.
I can totally understand how it feels to be bullied because of how you look, what you wear. I was basically called Zombie back in high school. And the one that called me zombie was basically one of my friends. So, it is very important to surround yourself with Good People. Surround yourself with the people that love you the way you are and don’t compare you with others or judge you.
Self-Love was the one thing that inspired me to start this blog. I have been writing a lot of self-love and I truly stand by my words. It is very simple to show yourself some love even in difficult times. Every morning I wake up and go to the mirror and simply smile back at myself. I don’t know why but it gives me a lot of motivation and positivity.
Self-love is as simple as taking a bubble-bath on Saturday evening, or doing your nails every week, or doing a simple face mask.
I love myself the way I am and you have to love yourself the same way too. You can wear whatever you want to just remember to feel comfortable in it. I remember wearing many pieces of clothing that were really cute and looked amazing but I was not comfortable wearing them. I regret wearing all those outfits again and again and that is fine. You make mistakes, you learn from them.
So, here’s a tip for everyone; if you are wearing a really cute outfit and you feel comfortable in it, ignore the world. You Do You. But if that clothing item is making you feel self-conscious, don’t wear it this time.
I know there are some days when you are bloated, I personally prefer wearing one-pieces or high waisted jeans on those days. You can wear whatever you want just remember to feel ‘comfortable’ in it.
Body-Positivity, Self-Love; these concepts are not only for girls, but it’s also for boys too. They too are body shamed.
I am 5’3 and my weight is 53 and I love my body in that way only. I do workout daily, I pretty much enjoy working out but I don’t work out to be slim or to get abs. I work out just because I want my body to move and want my body to be stronger. And to be honest I feel very lucky because I have a body that can move and that is all I need at the end of the day.
I have people in my life who are not so fit and they work a lot in order to get their body in shape. But trust me, not eating or working out till your body crashes is not a good option. So, workout because you want to get stronger. Eat healthy because you want your body to get healthier. Don’t do these things in order to lose weight.
My pro tip is to surround yourself with positive people. Love yourself before loving others. I am very thankful to my friends and family members, they have always supported me no matter what.
This quarantine has made me realize how much people are struggling with body confidence and self-love. When all you have to do is nothing to achieve it. Comparing yourself with others is not okay! You are not them and they are not you.
Everybody is beautiful in their own way. You are beautiful in your own way. You just have to see how pretty amazing you are.
I know that you are very pretty.
I know that you are very strong.
I know you are the best.
Then, why can’t you see it? Why can’t you see yourself the way I see you? Maybe try seeing yourself with my eyes and then you will realize how beautiful, handsome, and attractive you actually are.
And no matter what the society says, remember you are amazing the way you are. Don’t change yourself for others. Love yourself the way you are.
Remember that everyone suffers from something in their life. Don’t body shame them. Skinny people are body shamed, Obese people are body shamed, even the one’s with a toned body is body-shamed sometimes.
I am not perfect and if I look at myself I can spot many flaws in my own self. But I am no more afraid of my flaws. My flaws are what make me beautiful.
My acne scars are what make me beautiful. My acne is what makes me beautiful. My stretch marks are what make me beautiful. My bruises are what make me beautiful. Beauty is not your outer appearance, being beautiful is being confident in your own body.
If you are confident in your own body, you are the most beautiful person in this universe. And I meant it.
I love you and I know you are perfect the way you are. I just want you to admit it. So, go to a nearby mirror and say to yourself – I am beautiful the way I am. I don’t care about what others think. I love myself. And I truly love myself.
