Self-Love Is Enough

As humans, we all strive for perfection. For some, it’s to have perfect grades all through college. Some strive to live their best life possible, and then there are some who wish they could possibly be someone else. I, along with others, often wish they could possibly be someone else. To live in someone else’s skin, instead of your own. If I have learned anything these last 4 years in college is that it’s okay to be who you are. It’s okay to have a different body type than someone else because that makes you different and makes you who you are meant to be. In our world today, many people struggle with looking a certain way. A way that society has seemed to set the standards for society. For women to be a size 2 model, or for men to be less fat and more muscle. But what they don’t seem to understand is that no two people have the same body-type. Humans are like fingerprints, we are all different in our own way. I, for example, always wished to be just a little bit taller, to be just a little bit skinner, or just to be a little bit prettier. In my mind, I knew I wasn’t normal with the way I look. If you were to take a look at the women on both my mother’s and father’s sides, the women are thick and stout. Now I don’t mean this in a bad way, but growing up I craved to be different. To be someone else. I never believed in myself. I never believed that I would be good enough. I didn’t have a positive outlook on my body when I was 12 – 18. Now, I wish I could go back and tell my younger self that you are beautiful just the way you are. Body positivity can be described as this social movement that has been encouraging women that they should be confident in their skin, curves, and overall body. Sometimes you might not feel comfortable in your skin, and that is perfectly fine! You don’t have to feel like you have to look flawless all the time to represent body positivity, it's okay to have that one zit or blemish on your face. It's okay to have those freckles that become more noticeable the longer you are out in the sun. I am far from perfect. My body is far from perfect. But when it comes to comparing myself to others, I am the absolute worse. It took a long time to accept myself and my body for who I was and even today I'm still learning to accept myself. Sometimes it can be either easy or difficult to accept yourself, and sometimes it's a long learning process. Like I said, I have been dealing with these issues for a while now and I'm still learning how to accept myself. Don't Just Be Good To Others. Be Good To You Too.
