Hey guys! Today I have a guest post from the amazing BeautyAnion and it honestly made me feel better about myself. This is the. type of message that SHOULD go around. Anyway, I’m honoured that she’d post on my blog – thank you!
Now I know that my blog is a ‘fashion blog’ but I thought that this was an important issue that I would like to address and to me I think it sort of relates to style.
I used to love being a child and not giving a care about the world around me and I would be able to enjoy the things I do without hesitating, and people still say to be that I am still young and should be care free but asadolescence-hood struck upon me I have grown extremely self conscious of my body. Most teenage girls could also probably relate to this. And I do care about the way I look.
Majority of girls you ask will say there is something about them that they don’t like, whether it is the size of certain areas, stretch marks, or so on, and even if you see girls posting photos on Facebook of them in bikinis, I’m sure they would say something similar.
I always find myself comparing my body to others, and what I would like to happen to my body if I started exercise more regularly. I very rarely wear crop tops without high waisted jeans as I feel like everyone is judging me on the way I look. Do you feel the same sometimes?
But then I do wonder, why should we care? Why should I be comparing myself to somebody from a magazine who has more than likely been photo-shopped in some way or another? The fact is I shouldn’t. You shouldn’t. This is going to sound so cliche but we were given the body’s that we live in today and you only get one body and you should love you for being you. Ignore the comments made, all that matters is that you are happy and should live life fully, not worrying about whether you will be judged, because really we are all the same.
Body confidence issues are a problem among many, not just girls, but boys too! And this blog post definitely won’t solve anything, but I just wanted to put the message out there that whatever you wear, you wear because you like it, it makes you you and you shouldn’t worry about what you look like in it or what others think because really, think to yourself ‘Does it really matter what others think of me when I am comfortable being who I am?’
So wear that crop top, or shorts or whatever it is in pride. Just be happy and be you!
