Step One: Stop giving a fuck what boys think of you. You will constantly be unhappy as long as you’re depending on gross teenage boys to make you feel worthy. Do not listen to them or their opinions because they mean nothing. The only person’s opinion about you that truly matters is YOURS. I’m serious the majority of boys (especially ages 12-25) are nasty and you can do so much better if you thrive off your friendships and happiness with yourself!
Step Two: Come up with some positive affirmations for yourself and whip them out when you start to feel bad. For example, when I start to feel negative about myself or my body I say “No matter what happens, Justin still exists and loves me” or “All bodies are good bodies” or “I’ve gotten through so much, I can keep going” etc.
Step Three: Love yourself. Work to find the things about yourself that you’re proud of and accept the ones that you aren’t. Pretend to be confident and you’ll start to become confident. Keep a list of nice things people have said to you and realize that they’re true
Step Four: Accept that it’s okay to not have a boyfriend. I assume you’re in high school, which means I’m also pretty sure not everyone has had a boyfriend at your school. There are SO many other girls in your situation, you’re not alone, and what you’re feeling is normal. It’s completely okay to be single!! It really is not a bad thing, it just means your time hasn’t come. Stop reaching for boys that you won’t be happy with and be happy with yourself until you find someone worth your time. If you feel a pressure to be pretty when you’re around someone, they’re not worth it.
Step Five: Dedicate your soul to Justin Bieber and everything will be okay
