As bikini season is around the corner so are the insecurities that come with it. There is way too much emphasis put on physical appearance. A girl has to have a certain weight, shape, or look. In reality each girl is different and is beautiful in her very own way. Some girls will never be skinny minis, some girls will never upgrade from kid sizes, and some girls will never find a bikini that fits just right.
As you have probably figured out by now, we all want what we can't have. But I am telling you that the most important thing at the end of the day is to love yourself. Each girl needs to be confident with herself, no matter what she looks like. And at the root of confidence is surrounding yourself with faithful people (faithful in you that is). If you think about it, this makes a lot of sense. When do we feel most confident: around a group of strangers or with our best friends?
I know that I feel most confident around my best friends. This is because I know that they believe in me, love me for who I am, and they will always be there for me. So, when we surround ourselves with these people we feel a sense of confidence. But I want you to feel confident everywhere around everyone.
I play this game with my friends sometimes: list 5 things you wish you could change about yourself and 10 things you love about yourself. These can be either physical or nonphysical features.
Now look at the things you want to change about yourself compared to what you like about yourself. Which one do you think is going to get you farther in life? A nice nose or the way you can comfort people.
Loving yourself is not all about what you look like. There is so much more to who you are. And if you are willing to figure that out in order to love yourself, you're already doing a lot more than other girls. Trust me on this: every single girl whether skinny, short, or tall feels insecure at some points. Don't be like everyone else; Don't constantly worry about who you have to impress. Worry about what really counts and I promise that confidence will follow.
P.S For these reasons I shop at Aerie- they are all about beauty in every size. I really love what they stand for; and it is just a bonus that their products are cute as well.
