Everywhere I look there are people saying that you have to love your body, and spreading body positivity but at the same time worship people with 1 specific body type that majority people don't have. Isn't that contradictive?
There are major media campaigns and endless blog posts on how you should learn to love your body. Don't get me wrong I am all about accepting your flaws and not dwell on things that you can't changes or if you can change something on you then by all means go for it.
However, how realistic is to truly love your body?
The whole idea of it, it gets to the point of making people uncomfortable when they don't like themselves, like there is something wrong with that. When in fact is absolutely normal. There is always something on every person that makes them feel insecure about themselves. Therefore, it's more than ok, not to like yourself sometimes.
I don't always like my body in fact I have moments that I completely hate it, but I also have moments where I am perfectly okay with how I look. However, everytime I express that I automatically labelled as an insecure bitter person that hates life. Which I don't think is true but as a normal 20 something girl I have my moments who doesn't anyways?
I always been the shorter girl of the group, standing at 5'1' it always made me feel insecure, and honestly it probably always will. Growing up though, in a way I have accepted that and learnt to be sort of okay with it. Learning to accept yourself is not easy and definitely not as easy as people making it to be. It doesn't happen overnight, it takes a while if not forever, it might never happen, but as I said before you come in terms with it and your okay with it. You learn to be grateful of what you have and have less days where you're like "I look sh*t today". And in the end of the day it's your body and no one has the right to tell you how to feel about it, if you wanna moan about your boobs its okay and is also okay to tell the whole world how awesome they are.
My point is that no one is perfect, and is perfectly okay not to like yourself sometimes.
Do you have moments where you just don't like yourself?
