So, I’ve been feeling differently lately…
I just woke up one morning feeling like a new person, but it finally felt like me. I’ve struggled with self-acceptance as long as I can remember and felt like my brain was split into two halves or two people.
One would always tell me that I had a right to be here, that I were beautiful in my own way and to be happy whereas the other would always put me down and make me feel worthless.
I feel as though the negative side of my brain has vanished and it is so uplifting. I chose to clear out my wardrobe, throw out all the celebrity/trash magazines and ignore the world that media convinced me was real.
I’ve started buying the clothes I like rather than the clothes that are in fashion or “must-haves” and making sure that I look for the positives in everything. I feel true to myself and I’ve noticed that people are approaching me differently. I’m holding my head high!
This post may seem a little odd, but I just wanted to let all those who are troubled by themselves that it will be okay. You will find yourself and you will be happy! Just don’t lose hope or belief in yourself. We all go through rocky patches in our lives and facing these with a positive outlook can only ease the pain.
Ignore the celebrities, the airbrushed women and all those “pretty” girls around you. You are you and you only. Nobody else looks like you, talks like you or even thinks like you. You are special, you are beautiful and you are loveable. So you aren’t size zero? Glasses? Freckles? Who cares. It’s our individual quirks that make us individual and in-turn beautiful!
Look in the mirror and smile! Hold your head up and know that everything will be okay!
