How to learn to love yourself for who you are ?? Love you girl xxx
For me it had a lot to do with surrounding myself with friends that boosted my confidence! For quite a while I felt like the way I was naturally with no fake tan, no makeup, etc was ugly, and while I like to think I was overall quite a confident person, it was these things that were my biggest insecurities e.g. the colour of my skin and my bare face (acne scars, very blonde eyelashes and eyebrows). I often had these “imperfections” pointed out to me in a negative manner by some, and that made me insecure about them.
But then friends came into my life who told me I didn’t need to wear tan all the time, that I was beautiful without it… that I even looked better without it… and that helped me overcome those insecurities. It took a while (@bonnyrebecca and Tim probably spent a good year telling me to stop wearing fake tan before I actually did it, and it was one of the first things @mangomargaux said to me when we met). So yeah! That might not be the most inspiring answer… I didn’t have some magical epiphany within myself that told me to love myself for how I was or anything haha, but meeting people who loved me for everything that I am naturally helped me see that my flaws aren’t necessarily negative!
