I think a big difference with the person who I was in the past and the person who I am now is the fact that I can look at myself and my photos without a sense of self-loathing and discrimination. I can actually tell you guys that I'm happy. I'm at peace with what I look like. I'm not gonna lie and say that I feel like that every day but on most days, I do feel good about myself. I came from looking at myself in the mirror and being critical about every aspect of my face and body to looking at the mirror and greeting myself a good morning.
I think the fact that I've started to appreciate the little "flaws" that I have and turn it into interesting points or quirks is a positive move towards finally accepting who I am. I know a lot of girls and women out there are critical with their bodies, it's only natural. We all have our insecurities and those small voices at the back of our heads that keep on telling us we're ugly, too fat, and unworthy. But you know what, that's okay. I am ugly on some days. I am fat because I don't watch what I eat and I eat whenever and whatever I want in excess. I do feel like I'm not worth a dime on some days because I'm not productive with my life and my choices are questionable.
But, that's okay. It's okay for me to feel like that on some days. It's okay for you to feel like that too.
There's nothing wrong with feeling down and worthless as long as you realize that it's only a phase. What you're feeling now is not permanent. In the ever changing flow of emotion and time, almost everything is inconsequential. Do you know what matters? What matters is your attitude towards self-improvement and the tomorrow you're dreaming of today. I hope you guys think about that and I hope I helped you even if it's just a little bit.
