How you doin’?
I’ve been going through some blogs recently and decided to write about a thing which worries me a lot.
Growing up I had many things to hate about my appearance. One of my biggest insecurities is (and always was) my nose. It has come to the extinct that I really want to make a plastic surgery and cut it off (well, not all of it obviously, just the bridge, that annoying thing, which I hate).
The world has changed really. I know that in the early 1990s the plastic surgery business was experiencing a huge blow up. Everyone from housewives to professional models felt the need to change the ‘nature’. Now, as the society has developed, the awareness of the natural beauty started spreading all over the world. I have a close friend, she lives in Canada and she is the one who got me thinking differently, She told me that weighing more than VS model is OK, that having something on your face is OK, that having greasy hair is OK, and all of that.
I have many friends thinking that they have to lose weight. Just cause they think they will look better, feel better etc. I do not think things will change. I believe it’s all in your head, by changing your appearance you won’t feel yourself better, you’ll still find something in your body which you ‘hate’. I am no difference, although I’d like to think I’m getting better, I still have those thoughts like: I’m not good enough, not skinny enough, not fit enough. I hate those thoughts, they make me unhappy.
We all are beautiful, we have to remember that! There’s no such thing as the definition of beauty (there is, but beauty is different to every human being). Wikipedia says:
Pleasure and satisfaction can arise in different circumstances. It depends on a human: what he/she likes, enjoys, what cultural background he/she has.
What I’m trying to say is: do not be obsessed with your personal appearance, do not think of how you look constantly. Try to find a few things you love about yourself.
You know what, let’s do it, let’s all find at least 10 things we love in our bodies! I’ll start:
Your turn! Name at least 10 things you love about your body!
Thanks a lot for reading! I love you!
