I recently read a really stupid post about why women with big boobs are the best girlfriends and there was a silly one about how easy it is to get plastic surgery meaning ‘no excuse for small boobs” which bloody annoyed me. The only thing that has stopped me going completely mental is the fact that it honestly was a very stupid post that was only made to get views and laughs. But it opens so many doors as I thought about it.
Why on earth do people expect others to change themselves in any way for them. The only person you should ever change for is yourself and as I have said previously you are the one that will have to live with you for the rest of your life so don’t worry what others think.
Now, I know its easier said than done but it is so important to love yourself and to really be comfortable in your own skin. Basically I feel a bit of an idiot because as I’m writing this I’m thinking- well only an hour ago I was shunning away compliments from a friend because (and I quote) “Haha that’s silly”. Why should that be my first reaction to a compliment? Why shouldn’t I agree? Why should I put myself down?
Well firstly I have no idea what to say to a compliment, and secondly I genuinely disagreed with them. This is not a “fishing for compliments” etc thing. This is my start to loving myself.
As you can see I have put a picture of myself with the part of me I like the least. That being my smile and my breasts. So I am going to start something new. Each day I will pick at least two things that I am happy with about myself. Rather than pointing out everything that I think is a flaw I will say “Today I love myself because…”. This might sound stupid, or cheesy but honestly I could not care less. At the end of the day my happiness is as important as any one else’s.
How you feel about yourself will shine through so if you feel negative- people will be able to tell (sub-consciously) and they will react accordingly. Always try your best to walk tall (I can walk as tall as 5″1- but i’ll keep trying!) and always try your best to just love yourself. I’m not saying have a sudden turn around from “jeez I hate myself today” to “Wow, I think i’m amazing in every way.” But you should certainly give it a go.
Today I love myself because my eyes smile too…
What do you love yourself for today?
