In the majority of people’s typical day it would include looking in a mirror, some longer then others.
That is a time when you tend to judge yourself a little more, picking out your imperfections, it could be small things such a spots or small markings, somethings that only you know are there but you feel everyone is judging them. You are just making yourself feel worst about your body when it’s so unnecessary.
This use to be something I’d do mainly on my size but that was until I actually thought, if I don’t have the motivation because it’s not really a problem, then why change it. I’ll just feel worst about myself when I fail trying to change, then I actually would if I don’t attempt to change.
We all have parts we don’t like, for example I don’t like how my legs look in photos, they just seem like bone with lumpy patches of extra skin. Then there’s my teeth, I don’t like how my front tooth over laps the other. I have a wonky nose that I then got pierced to distract you from it. My side burns, yes you read correctly, side burns. This is because when I was younger I had the fun experience of shaving my face, once you shave hair, it grows back darker and thicker. This is a constant problem and it doesn’t exactly make me feel feminine for having to shaving my face.
These are all the negatives, where are the positives?
Just because this is your body doesn’t mean you should be bullying yourself instead.
Parts I like about my body are; the shape of my bum, I love the way it looks in leggings as it really defines the shape. The colour of my eyes, they’re a unique shade of blue that I get a fair few compliments on. My tattoos, yes they may not be natural to me but they are a part of my life’s story, designed by me and ink on me. How thick my hair is, my hair does cause problems with malting but that’s because I’ve got so much. When I have time off work, my nails are able to grow, they are amazingly thick and really awesome to paint (when I have the chance.)
You can tell me all the parts you hate about yourself but I’d love to hear you say about the parts you love.
Your hates could very much be what I love.
Just remember everyone’s different.
