Hi, beautiful readers.
When I was writing an essay the other week, the topic of insecurities was brought up. When I looked at the statics of young women hating on their bodies(6 in 10) , I was shocked.
Being one of those girls who hates on their self, I thought how ridiculous this was. We are, our own versions of beauty, and fact that we hate on ourselves because we aren’t Kim Kardashian or Selena Gomez, made me think; Why would we want to look like them, when their looks are already taken?
We have beauty on the inside and outside, which they don’t have. No one is perfect, even celebrities, so why are we trying to be?
We should be imbracing ourselves and not hiding away, in a bathroom staring at a mirror insulting ourselves.
I even challenge you.
Next time, you are in that bathroom, looking at that mirror, about to hate on yourselve, stop. Say,” I am gorgeous” or “I am beautiful”.
Even if you don’t believe it, say it.
You’ve insulted yourselve so many times that you are believing you have ‘flaws’, which you don’t have but you still believe you do… It will work with ” I am beautiful”, you will say it so many times that you will start to believe it and won’t see those ‘flaws’ anymore.
I tried it and it works. I have never been so happy with my body and it’s been a week since I have started saying “I am gorgeous”, imagine what it can do for you…
Please, for you and I, let’s show our own version of beauty to the world and that starts with showing our own version of beauty to ourselves…
