- about beauty standard🌹
Do you accept that your nose will always be a little crooked
Legs always a little too thick
Always a little too short
Looking a little too old
Smiling a little too wide
Cheeks a little too round
Do you accept that, with all these imperfections, it only makes you more human and real
That you are supposed to be a person because you aren't manufactured with molded plastic
I have been shamed time after time, for always being a little too out there, too me. I was scared to show my true self because of fear of judgements. But I realised, no matter how much I changed to fit their definitions of good/beautiful, someone will always find something to say about it. It could be those "harmless jokes" from your friends, comments from strangers who felt entitled, family who gets too used to being "blunt" but "meant well". They want me to believe that I am #nevergoodenough that I should be ashamed of believing myself, for liking myself.
It has never been a straight path, but I am learning to accept who I am as I am, to own my own body. I don't give a damn what you think about my appearance. I am as beautiful as every other human being, and I am not afraid or shameful to admit it. #IamminebeforeIamanyoneelses And afterall, why bother with others' approval when the only thing that should matter is to enjoy life? You will never relive this moment. So why not have as much fun as you can, be the fullest version of yourself, try new things and make mistakes, feel every emotion and keep learning. A flower blooms not to please others but simply to be.🌹
I invite you to #speakupforyourself from now on. Refuse to give in to hurtful comments. Never ever believe that you are those labels they put on you.
I could never have arrived here without the unwavering faith, unconditional love and support from the important people in my life. Thank you for reminding me what I need to hear time after time when I crumble in self doubts. In everything I have and do there is a little bit of you 💖
