This is me. No make up, just a new haircut that day, and a happy person.
I am an emotional person. However, you wouldn’t know this unless you read my blog or are a very close friend of mine. I always have this positive outlook on life, and I always look at the glass as half full. I also take things people say with every possible intention; so if my ex would say to me, “I love your thighs. They’re like big pillows,” I would silently sit there and think of how large my thighs are, how poochy my stomach is, and how I would love to be a different size.
I know that’s not healthy, but I couldn’t help myself. I don’t think I have ever not indulged this thought process, but that is starting to change.
My cousin (who is my rock) has been my personal trainer at the gym, and I already feel so much better about myself. For me, going to the gym is something for me, and no one else. I just want to feel comfortable in my own skin.
I am only 20 years old, but I have had a lot of time to think about why it is that I think less of myself, and why so many wonderful, amazing, and beautiful people in the world think they are not worthy of love and attention. My conclusion is that while people who are in the limelight are beautiful in their own ways, everyone forgets to love and appreciate their own bodies. It is with complete honesty that I thank the media for this warped vision of what “healthy” and “beautiful” means. If it wasn’t for the media, we wouldn’t have a need for such a wonderful blog and amazing people in the world getting together and cherishing all that we have been blessed to have.
