Body Positivity: Being Comfortable in Your Own Skin

Outer beauty and feeling comfortable with the way we look is something that a lot of people struggle with because of a huge social network that exposes us to content that we compare ourselves to. We lie to ourselves constantly on a daily basis right when we open our social media. Most media pages post women or men with this image of the perfect body. However, we already have our own perfect bodies. Every human being is created in our own individual way to make us who we are. We struggle with the way we look. We may not love ourselves the way we should. For example, we maybe unhappy about our nose, breast size, not having a big enough butt. However, these are the things that set us different than everyone else. I use to get made fun of for my nose because I have a Roman/Italian nose. I was super insecure about it. As time went on, I’ve realized that my nose is what makes me unique. Our bodies are what people see everyday. Going under the needle can leave permanent damage to our looks. For example, people getting butt injections. Every actions can lead to serious consequences, however we don’t care. We as a society compare ourselves to other people. Why should we try to look like the next Kardashian? That us conforming to something we aren’t. If we aren’t happy with the way we look, change it, but not under the needle. Figure out what works best. For me, I wasn’t happy with the way my body was. I didn’t like the weight I had gained from my past. I decided to start making healthy choices. I changed my diet and started to work out again. There are a million different options of working out. You have to find what works best for you. I don’t enjoy pumping iron anymore, so I stick to running and doing daily core. The end results are worth it in the end. I am a person who can say I love myself. I’m always making myself happy because I’m comfortable in my own skin. I embrace what makes me unique and different than anyone else. I’m not afraid to show off my body in public because at the end of the day, I am who I am and I was made to be. Don’t let stereotypes stop you from being who you are. Self love is the most important kind of love there is out there. Be who you are. Stay true to yourself. Embrace your flaws. Love the little things that make you, you. If someone tries to bring you down as a person because of the way you look, then screw them. You are being yourself. That’s all that matters. Finding your strength and courage to stand in front of a crowd and telling them basically if they can’t accept you for who you are, then kick them out of your life. Negativity is horrible. Surround yourself with positivity. It will make you much happier overall. Don’t be afraid to take a risk or two. Something that has been on your mind for a while. For example, let’s say you’ve been wanting to get a tattoo, but are scared what your family or friends may think. Just go for it. If it’s going to make you happier and more confident at the end of the day, then do it. It’s a risk worth taking because you are embracing who you are and want to be. Don’t body shame anyone! Every single one of us was created with our own unique traits. I have a birth mark on my stomach and it sticks out like a sore thumb if I were to wear clothing that reveals my body. Our bodies have gone through so much from the moment we were born. It’s always constantly changing. Don’t think of your flaws as a set back ever, especially when it comes to our outer body. Stretch marks are beautiful, beauty marks are beautiful, we are ALL beautiful in our own individual ways. We all have things we are super insecure about. Don’t let someone else dictate what kind of body you want or have. Be comfortable in your skin, with who you are.

  1. Being comfortable and confident in your own skin is pretty important. If we aren’t happy with our bodies then I think it benefits to do things like work out. This gives us the drive to make positive changes but yeah I think we should try to love who we are in the process or at least have that as a goal in mind. Nice!

  2. What another amazing blog Sam! I totally agree with getting away from all the negativity you become who you surround yourself with, I’ve began to surround myself with positive and out going people and it’s changed my life style tremendously.
