Hey Guys and welcome back to my blog
Happy Friday, I hope you’re all well
Now then for today’s post I thought I would talk about learning to love yourself.
You see a lot on social media, in newspapers, on websites about being the ‘perfect’ size, what is the perfect size? That’s the question, and the answer is there isn’t a perfect size.
Now to me it doesn’t matter if you’re a size 4 or a size 24 what matters is that you’re happy in your own body. All you see nowadays are people trying to look ‘perfect’ everyone is perfect in their own way, embrace your body, don’t let the media pressurize you into losing weight, changing your look, or going on some fad diet just so you can look like everyone else. You be your own self.
One thing for me that I’ve started to realise is that I don’t care what people think, growing up I used to always think to myself someones going to judge me for what I’m wearing, or what I’ve done with my hair and make up. Now I’m 24 years old and I wear what the hell I want, I buy something that I wouldn’t have ever dreamt about buying years ago for the fear of being judged, I’m finally being me and to be completely honest it’s the best feeling in the world. Yes someone may not like what I’m wearing but if I like what I’m wearing then that’s all that matters.
I’m going to be completely honest now and say I look at people on social media in bikinis or doing a work out and I look back at my own body and wish I looked like that, I wish I was skinny enough to look hot in a bikini, I wish I could do a work out without getting tired and out of breath within the first 10 minutes but then do you know what I think, I think f**k it, I only have one life and I’m not going to spend it wishing I looked like someone else or craving a different body.
Yes I’ve recently changed my eating lifestyle but that’s purely because I used to constantly eat crap, I’ve done it for me, for the future me not for someone else or because I feel like I needed to, I wanted to there’s a difference. BUT I haven’t done it because I want to look good I’ve done it because I want to feel good. Constantly eating bad foods just makes you feel so lethargic, you feel lazy, you don’t want to do anything, you have no motivation, well that’s how I felt anyways. Having a healthy lifestyle plays a big part in your overall well-being, again I do still eat crap, but who doesn’t? I just eat it in moderation.
Now I know a lot of people are gonna be like Sarah shut up you look absolutely fine etc, but when you have your own insecurities you just cant help it, but hey guess what I love my insecurities and I now embrace them, if other people love you for who you are & what you look like then you need to start doing exactly the same thing.
The point I’m trying to get across is that we need to start learning that life isn’t all about trying to look our best or be our best, it’s not about going on fad diets, or wearing what you think you should wear, it’s about learning to love ourselves no matter how we look, what we do or what we wear. You can never take life for granted, you need to enjoy the life you have been given not spend it worrying about what you look like.
So I’m going to leave this post with a short lyric from the amazing Whitney Houston, my music idol as I think it’s the perfect way to sum up this post.
Learning to love yourself, it is the greatest love of all
Have a great weekend, and until next time.
