Hello Everyone! I thought it would be a good idea to reminisce about the topic of...Body Confidence. As i feel as though this topic isn't talked about enough in terms of helping people with accepting their 'Perfect' body and to encourage them to feel satisfied with it, regardless to whether you are stick thin or plump and chubby (like me :D)
to start with...
i believe it is morally wrong to label somebody of being 'fat' or 'skinny' purely because i think there is no such thing as these overheard stereotypes that our society uses to class us and also because of how much negative stigma there is based around these 'labels'. If you feel as though you are being brought down by these labels JUST because of your body, then pleaseeeee remember that there is no such thing as a 'perfect body' because you are already perfect the way you are. Also, the next time you feel as though you are being judged by these 'society followers' (otherwise known as 'the most judgemental people ever) Just ignore them and brush it off, because its likely that they are only judging other people to make them feel better about themselves. So the next time you interpret a situation like this, just remind yourself that they are probably insecure too and that you are not the only one.
body insecurity is probably one of the biggest elements in our generation that is hurting people the most. However, this concept may not only come alone. As some people suffer the consequences of body insecurity through eating disorders, mental health issues and low self-esteem. If you are one of these people then please seek help! There are so many organisations and helplines out there to help you overcome whatever you are going through. I completely understand that you may not want to talk about it and you may feel like you are the only one but when people say "Your not alone" they really do mean it. The 2 organisations i would really recommend are: 'MIND' and 'BEAT'. These organisation i have deeply researched into through my ongoing A-level of Health and Social care. So trust me when i tell you this. They will help you.
On the other hand you might be someone that doesn't suffer as badly from your body insecurities, however you may still feel uncomfortable and unhappy in it, so I'm hoping that my motivational way of writing might just be able to help you. Your body is what it is. Regardless, if you think you are 'out of proportion' or have 'chubby legs and flabby arms'. (Keep that word "think" in mind). Because YOU are your own kind of perfect and no body can define that other than yourself. If you look in the mirror everyday i think 'erg i'm fat, I'm never gunna be a model, gunna be ugly the rest of me life'. Then PLEASE Stop right there! As you are your own person, You should be thinking more in the present and less in the future, as nobody can predict the future (including you). So why doesn't everyone just learn to ACCEPT that you are living for you? Now, i understand that this is a lot to take in and its a bit ironic coz this is probs hard to accept too.
Do you remember that word that i mentioned? Yeh, you guessed it, "Think". All that THINKING that you do about yourself, everyday, month and year. You are always analysing your self to make sure that you look like your 'desired self'. But what you're not realising is that you are already your 'desired self',you are already 'perfect'. All that overthinking has caused you to think that you are all the things that you can not be. This is what I call 'our mind playing tricks on us'. Because you are so driven by the idea of being 'skinny' or 'slim' that you just end up underestimating yourself and making yourself seem lower than you actually are.
Now, I'm gunna pause right there and remind you that: you are already perfect and you should not feel the pressure to change yourself just because thats what society wants. I managed to overcome a stage of low self body confidence so I'm positive that you can too! I really hope that this helped some of you to be more accepting and to feel more confident about yourself!
