So there is this page I follow at instagram called @ roastkardashians my first thought was “why would you enjoy exposing celebs and insta famous people?” But then the owner of roastkardashians showed screenshots of young girls thanking her because they finally see that nothing is wrong with them and all these “insta famous” people got surgery done, that it isn’t natural at all. I’m actually really suprised I’m doing this but I get too much messages from insecure girls thinking something is wrong with them because they don’t look like those girls from instagram. While the reality is that those instagram girls don’t even look like themselves! So what if you don’t have clear skin or don’t have a perfect nose or body? don’t be fooled, love yourself the way you are and don’t take instagram too serious, it doesn’t reflect reality.
I hate being compared to other girls. I hate comparing myself to other girls. Yet I do it everyday & it’s become a habit. One of which I’m getting sick to death of.
The ‘perfect body’ stigma- big boobs, tiny waist, massive arse. Yet impossible for many to achieve. You guys with hourglass figures (kardashians), lucky you. But what about naturally skinny girls, or girls with bigger chests, or girls with bigger hips? If we all looked the same, the ‘barbie doll’ - wouldn’t we all look boring. Social media is to blame. It really is. ‘Perfect girls’ on instagram - people believing that is the only ‘acceptable’ way to look. Truth is, its not.
Everyone is beautiful. You may not think you are society’s idea of beautiful but you really are. Whether thats having gorgeous eyes, mouth or button nose. An amazing sense of fashion. Luscious hair or a cracking smile & a set of pearly whites. You are beautiful. And I personally really need to remind myself of this every day. I know how hard it is. I really do.. but being happy with yourself is key. I have learnt that losing weight hasn’t really made me any happier with how I was before. I still hate my body.
I will never be happy with my body. And no amount of sit-ups or squats will help me here. Its all in my mind. Someone may think I have the ‘perfect’ figure, someone may think I need to work on my legs. Its how you feel at the end of the day. Having a positive mindset is one of the hardest things to do & learning to love yourself is equally as difficult.
Society doesn’t help, but try not to compare yourself to other girls. Everyone is different. Everyone is unique. Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Your flaws, other girls may envy. Learn to love yourself - I cannot stress it enough. I’m trying & so should you.
