I know I'm not alone when I say I see problems with my physical appearance. I know I'm not alone when I say I wish I had the perfect body. I also know, I'm not alone when I say I feel like I am alone in this.
Body image is such a touchy subject. Everyone has imperfections and everyone thinks their problems are so much worse than they ever are. I, for example, think I am much more overweight than I am in reality. I have a skinny friend who thinks she's overweight, I think it's terrible that we all think we're so imperfect. If I could help the younger generations at all, I would tell him that everyone is beautiful. Skinny girls, over weight girls, in between girls, everyone is really quiet beautiful. I wish more people saw that, I also wish people would embrace uniqueness more. The girls who are average middle school or high school often turn into the really gorgeous girls, especially because they are humble. I wish I could spread self-love to the younger girls.
I know I'm not the only one who has "ugly" days. Ya know, those days where you feel just... blah. On those days, I try to up my spirits with a little make over. I redo my finger nails, shave my legs, maybe wear a pretty dress. My favorite is painting my finger nails, which I think I'm going to go do right now! ♥
What do you do to make yourself feel beautiful?
