I used to hate taking pictures of my face because of my very chubby cheeks. Now I just embrace them :3

This is my body. The body that I haven’t always treated well.
I’ve had body issues for as long as I can remember. I was a chubby kid, and was always told I would grow out of it and become pretty. I never felt beautiful because I was taught that I wasn’t good enough and all the women around me talked badly about themselves. The media always showed tall, lean women, and I could never relate to that. I thought that one day I would wake up to a lean, 6 foot body. That never happened. I got a whole 5’3 inches and curves. It wasn’t until recently that I realized that MY BODY IS AWESOME! I AM BLESSED TO BE SO HOT AND PRETTY AND COOL AND FUN!! Seriously, why have I spent so much time being mad at my body and myself when I am obviously an amazing creature?! Clearly I wasn’t truly looking at myself.
I have been bigger than I am now, and I have been smaller. But I was never happy at any size until I changed how I was feeling on the inside. I hope to fall in love with every part of myself. Not just my body, but my soul too.
I have so many blessings in my life. A cool family, and amazing boyfriend (seriously, such a beautiful soul), my health, I mean, so many things to be happy about.
So, my darlings, take a look at yourself. See yourselves for who you are on the inside, and notice the beauty of your outsides. Don’t let yourself, or anything else fool you into believing you aren’t beautiful and amazing and cool. because you are. BE BRAVE! JOIN THE BODY PEACE REVOLUTION!

Just by being apart of the body positive community has made me feel so much more comfortable with my body and opening myself up to people. It’s not a quick fix, there’s still days where I hate the way I look and wish I was thinner, my hair was less frizzy, my skin would be even and ance free..etc. But I realize now, that’s no way to live. I should be enjoying my life and accepting the way I look.
And it’s funny, because never in a million years would I see myself taking pictures of myself in my underwear, let alone letting the world to see. I used to experience anxiety for doing this, but it really does help me. I encourage you all to atleast try it, it’s actually liberating to show your body off to people and really just own yourself.
Oh and if you’re wondering, the socks are from sockdreams. If you’re a bigger gal like myself, definately try them out! They have a variety of styles and fabrics, and most of all they are plus size friendly. I sound like an ad, but I really just like this store.

Having a good body image has always (for me) been about health. But not about health in the ordinary sense (only eat this and that, exercise so and so), no. Healthy choices for me. This means taking an extra piece of cake every once in a while. It means staying home from school sometimes, just to drink tea and relax. Sometimes it means giving my all at the gym, while other times it means not going at all. Health is subjective and different for everybody. Having a good health helps me with my mental health, and it gives me the energy to focus on the positive aspects of life. 
I try to assess these things so that I can treat myself right and give me the love I deserve. I am a fighter, I will always fight for the right to love yourself and to be comfortable in your own body. My journey has been long, and it isn’t over, but I am enjoying each step I take. I want to love mysefl, and I am getting there. Hope you are enjoying your journey too!

Yesterday at University was truly terrible, it shouldn’t have been terrible and to someone who doesn’t suffer anxiety it was a great day. But for those who know me pretty well, know I suffer from anxiety and I am very insecure, some of you even know that I seek validation for my facial features (looks). I am very insecure about my looks, having a full head of hair and a big beard had always made me feel more secure, why? Because it covered some of my face.the other day I was pressured into trimming my beard right down and cutting my hair short. The moment the towel was taken away from my neck all my insecurities came rushing back, every little thing I hated was once again highlighted to me. Forward onto university a few days later. By theory getting compliments about your new look should ease any anxieties, and for someone who enjoys validation it would be awesome for me. How wrong was I, with every compliment I got the more anxious I got, I was getting compliments from people I don’t really talk to, I was in anxiety overload, through years of practice I managed to divert any attention away from looks to something gross (I accidentally sat on my testicle), on my break I had to get away from it all, I sat on my own for the majority of my break. It’s really hard trying to escape from something I can’t escape from. I personally don’t feel I am ever going to see the person who looks at me when I look into the mirror.
