We would all love to assume that we are positive. I personally would like to be capable of saying this. I used to say that I am positive, but I have also cried that I am-body negative. There have been moments when I have seen myself in a mirror and didn’t enjoy the reflection. So here’s how you can love yourself and get rid of negative-body feelings.
– Don’t Compare Yourself With Everybody. The only thing that is going to keep you caught in the body-hating hell is comparing yourself with everybody. Sure, we’ve all looked at another girl’s body and wanted ours to be similar to theirs.
– Being perfect is a fantasy. Flipping through pages of fashion magazines in which girls have been Photoshopped to seem like goddesses is going to make you feel bad. You believe your friends are all satisfied with their bodies and the way they look fabulous in those tighter-than-tight clothes? No! We all possess imperfections and we are all working on them. Your body is merely different, so quit comparing it.
– Your Body Is Art: A great British artist, Lucien Freud, only drew naked people through the height of his career. His concept of beauty was absolutely not the standard idea of beauty; he painted people blemishes and all, highlighting their contours, belly fat, wrinkles, blemishes, lines, veins.
Why did he do that? Since he knew that beauty is personal and that the personal body is at its most beautiful when it is imperfect.
You must love and believe in your beauty every single day and don’t give up on yourself. You are beautiful, and all you have to do is believe that you are.
