When you look in the mirror, what are the first thoughts that pop into your head? Are they positive, content thoughts? Or are they negative and self-deprecating? Because if they are the latter, then you need to start working on transforming your perception!
There are so many people out there who are willing to pull you down or judge you in order to make themselves feel better on some sadistic level. You don’t need to join them!
Us woman come in all different shapes, sizes, skin tones, hairstyles eye colours and personalities. But this is a good thing - Imagine how boring it would be if we all looked and acted alike!?
It is almost as though society has told us that we should be constantly concerned about how we look and act. As though it is uncool, to say “I have beautiful eyes” or “I am really good at writing poetry”. But what exactly is so bad about loving and appreciating your own good qualities? The only outcome I see coming from being confident and content in ourselves is that we will live a happier and more fun-filled life!
You and your body are going to be together from this moment until your last, so it is important to make peace with who you are. Start to focus on the things you love about yourself. Remind yourself of them each time a self-deprecating thought pops up. If there are areas of yourself that you want to work on, then great! There is nothing wrong with working on self-improvement, both physically and mentally, however it is important to appreciate all the many phases of self we experience.
Trust me when I say, that despite what you may think of as ‘flaws’, you are a beautiful and interesting woman who has so much to offer!
