Welcome to another blog post! I know that the title of this post is a lengthy one but I thought that I would do a post about my personal body confidence.
The mass media has reinforced most people no matter what age, sex, gender, sexiality, body size, skin colour that being yourself and natural is incorrect within the world of today and that we should be striving to be like people in the public eye that are pushed onto us on a daily basis via social media and print and digital advertisement. I believe thatn todays day and age where we are becoming more accepting things such as sexuality and gender, that we should be accepting ourselves for who we are and becoming more confident in ourselves.
I know that I might be a slightly spotty due to my lactose intolerance and hormones. I know that I wont look like the severely airbrushed celebrity models that are in top commercial magazines via a close up/head and shoulder shot with the masthead of the magazine above the picture. My face is mine and no one elses. So what, if it has a cluster of spots or scars or anything of that sort, my face is beautiful and its no one else's!
I have some flab and I know that I wont ever be like a famous male influencer who is on the front of fitness magazines but I love my flab and I think that its a part of me. I do believe though that if you're thin, fat or anything in between then thats your body and whatever you want to do with it is up to you just like whatever I do with mine is absolutely fine!
I might not have the most masculine of voices but I'm used to my voice by now and I think that it's absolutely fine. I've recorded myself many times and I'm absolutely fine with it! I don't need someone to pity me and tell me to not worry about my voice.
Basically, the point that I'm getting across is that I know that I have flaws and problems just like everybody else in this screw up of a world that we live in where everything is mainly dominated by powerful midde aged men but I don't care what you think because I love myself and tha'ts all that matters. I know this sounds like such a vain blog post and this line will sound cheesy but honestly If you can't love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?
Keep being amazing, yourself and accepting of others!
Thanks for reading this slightly rambly blog post! I hope that you come back for another post and have a great day!
Thanks for reading!
