We all know by now that I’ve struggled with my self-confidence issues for a while. There’s so many things that I’m always ranting on about. I rarely feel good in my clothes and constantly feel like I’m struggling with what to wear to work.
I’ve started back at Slimming World for what feels like the millionth time but more recently I’ve also learnt to be a little less harsh on myself. Life is far too short to be worrying about how I hate my arms and the thigh gap that I’m forever lusting over. I’ve started trying new trends and pieces that I wouldn’t usually go for including horizontal stripes which I used to avoid like the plague. I’ve tried to stop finding ways to cover up my body in hoodies and massive coats which are clearly too big for me. All these steps that I have took are massive changes for me which I am trying to embrace. In all honesty, I am so happy with the changes I’ve made and I think it’s really began to show.
Three months ago I wouldn’t have been able to sit at my computer telling this little corner of the net that I feel slightly more confident in front of the camera. Okay, I’m definitely not the size that I would love to be and losing weight is going to be a rollercoaster of a journey but I don’t see myself getting off any time soon. I can’t wait to feel body confident again and be able to walk into a clothing store and now exactly what is suited to me and my body shape.
Personally, I think society and the media whether that’s online or offline requires you to look or feel a certain way. It is making a lot of people feel as though they aren’t good enough to achieve certain aspects of their lives whether that is to lose weight and be more body confident or to aim towards a certain goal in life but what I say is f**k them! You be who you want to be because what matters is your own personal happiness and your mental health. If you feel good about something, don’t stop doing it. If you want to achieve that goal, then do anything you can to achieve it. If you want to wear that dress for your weekend night-out, then wear that god damn dress and let the haters hate. After all, they are probably just jealous!
Overall, I don’t really know where this post is heading but I do know that in a years time we probably aren’t going to be pondering over how we felt in the girls’ toilets that Saturday night because there is so many more important things in life for you to concentrate on. You are such an amazing person. Don’t stop being you.
