Body Confidence

What do we see when we look in the mirror?
You. The true beauty you are. You may not think or feel you are special but trust me you're amazing the way you are. 

Body confidence: body image and self-esteem. This is a topic that has occurred in a few conversations I have had with various friends of mine. I don't claim to be perfect myself, as I have my insecurities like every other person, but over time many people will tell you that you're beautiful and you should give yourself more credit as you are an incredible human being.

We are all human, we all are equal and we all want to be happy and love ourselves.

I am writing this blog post to try encourage you to love yourself for who you are. Also I want this to be a place where we can discuss with each other body image, insecurities, self-esteem and everything else under the umbrella of self-hate and trying to find self-love. 

There is always going to be people out there that will judge you on what clothes you wear, how you style your hair or simply your body size and "flaws" but what we need to do is make sure we try block out any negative comments we receive by replacing them with words of love and happiness. 

Do not compare yourself to others.

If you are ever in doubt of your worth and natural beauty remember that you are AMAZING. If you ever feel embarrassed of your body just because you are different from others around; think to yourself, you have nothing to be ashamed of. You are perfect. Any scars, marks or lines are our imperfections but it's our imperfections and flaws that make us who we are.

Also if your someone you see is looking good, whether its their hair, clothing, smile or even just their presence. TELL THEM. Tell them that they look hot today or their t-shirt is cute. As for all you know that one compliment you give, could brighten up their day. Don't be afraid to speak out as you never know you may be that person one day who receives a sweet compliment.

Here are 5 things I want you to repeat to yourself when you look in the mirror: 
♡ Think positively, know that no matter what, I deserve happiness.
♡ If someone truly loves me, they will love me no matter how I look.
♡ Accept all of your imperfections as they make you unique and 
♡ I promise to stop denying I am beautiful, to start saying “Thank you. You are beautiful as well.”
♡ I have a beautiful soul, I AM a beautiful person.
