Every word, every sound, every touch about my physical appearance scrutinises the power of my insecurities. Every single person on this planet has flaws, flaws which are only possibly visible to one pair of eyes; their own. I could sit here all day and write about all the insecurities I have but a thing I have learnt is that for one insecurity you have, there are a thousand beautiful corporealities about your body and appearance that us as humans need to learn to embrace.
For starters, we only have only one body. We need to learn how to love and cater them as this is the only chance we are ever going to have! Bodies are a beautiful creation as it grows exquisitely inside of a woman’s tummy for a whole 9 months, so why not shake what your mamma gave you? Our bodies let us live the life that we want. Every single body shape is absolutely stunning, no matter what! A body is a body. Whoever is reading this, YOUR body is BEAUTIFUL!
Secondly, I have heard so many times about ones appearance,’I am so ugly,’ ‘My face is absolutely disguising.’ `Stop right there. I am a huge believer that every single person to ever live are pretty. We are creations of God so therefore, we are all pretty. Our faces are essential and it is the most valued element of loveliness. Our faces show a lot of who we are, our expressions, our movements etc. Our faces deserve love and attention. Not from anyone surrounding you but from yourself. Look in the mirror, look at that beautiful person in front, it is YOU!
Thirdly, I would like to say that the way we look does not define who we are. Our appearance is only the outside, nonetheless if you look deeper within the elegant human skin, there is something that beauty will never overpower which is our soul. Our soul contains our personality, our minds, our conscious. If your soul is the best it can be and reveals how much of an amazing person you are, beauty will never overtake the importance of a fascinating personality.
Finally, I want to give you some advice and tips on how to develop the love for yourself:
- Look in front of the mirror at yourself, say something you like about yourself. Whether it being your eyes, your curves, your smile.. Anything.
- Its time to look deeper within yourself, everyone has different personalities.. What do you like most about yours? And if the answer is none, search deeper.
YOU are beautiful. YOU are amazing. YOU are stunning. YOU are pretty. YOU are incredible. YOU are perfect in your own way. Learn it and believe it.
