Ok, enough is enough.
When are we going to stop finding reasons to hate our bodies?
When are we finally going to stop and go "that's it, I've finally gone to far with the self hatred" ?
I'm in lots of beauty and fashion groups online, and I love them, I love that women find ways to empower themselves and enjoy their features in different ways, wether it be make up, clothes, exercise, dancing, selfies, etc.
we all Have something that makes us feel good.
But for every woman I see rocking out and loving themselves, (even if they're "perfecting and practicing" their chosen thing, they're enjoying themselves)
For every one of those women (and men!) there's another who is hating themself.
And it kills me inside.
Today I witnessed a girl asking advice because her "veins are too blue" and I can't even form words for how frustrating and depressing that is.
Is this what we've been reduced to? Picking at our bodies to the point where our vital organs are now something to be self conscious about?
Are we going to start getting X-rays back from the dr and getting upset because our bones aren't spaced apart at perfect intervals? Or maybe we're going to start panicking about when our heart rate gets high we might be able to see it beating in our chest?
Sounds ridiculous right?
Well that's what we're doing everytime we pick on ourselves.
Everytime we hate on that stretch mark, everytime we jiggle our belly in the mirror, everytime we smile with our mouth closed because maybe our teeth aren't "straight enough"
All these things are as crazy and harmful as hating on the part of your body that carries your blood through it beneath the surface of your skin.
So please, enough is enough, there's nothing wrong with having an off day or two, or wanting to improve, but stop being so hard on yourself. We're all only human after all!
Accept that compliment, smile without worry, and love yourself!
Start your journey to self love, I promise it'll Be worth it.
