Dear amy what advice would you give to a young woman with body issues? I’ve never been happy with my body and I feel like it’s preventing me from loving myself

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?
That’s So Raven
I Am Free - Willow Smith
Respecting the shit out of this eleven year old tbh
She is the sweetest, cutest little girl. Not to mention she can SING, you can see that especially in the bridge. I love this. I wish every little girl felt this way, no, I wish every human being felt this way.
Your validation is just not that important to me.
This whole song. Beautiful.
“We let Willow cut her hair. When you have a little girl, it’s like how can you teach her that you’re in control of her body? If I teach her that I’m in charge of whether or not she can touch her hair, she’s going to replace me with some other man when she goes out in the world. She can’t cut my hair but that’s her hair. She has got to have command of her body. So when she goes out into the world, she’s going out with a command that it is hers. She is used to making those decisions herself. We try to keep giving them those decisions until they can hold the full weight of their lives.” (via Why Will And Jada Pinkett Smith Let Daughter Willow Cut Her Hair - The Frisky)
This is Scarlett Johansson at a beach in Hawaii.
She is one of the most gorgeous women in the world and a huge sex symbol. She isn’t totally skinny, she only has a thigh gap if she stands with her legs apart and she has cellulite and stretch marks on her thighs and butt. Does she give a fuck? No!
Regardless of all this, she’s absolutely gorgeous. There’s nothing wrong with cellulite, or stretch marks, or not having a perfectly flat stomach, you are beautiful and these things are normal.
I just wanted you all to see somebody who isn’t “perfect”, is still incredibly beautiful and doesn’t care about her stretch marks.
Don’t worry, be happy and healthy!

DREW: Ellen has such a beautiful body, and I personally battled with my own body image for years. I used to tell myself, You can’t wear anything sleeveless or strapless. And all of a sudden I was like, What if I just didn’t send such negative messages to my brain and said, wear it and enjoy it? And now I’m more comfortable in clothes than ever.
ELLEN: That openness. It’s so sexy.
DREW: She was in her freaking bra with an open jacket and hot-pink shorts, skating around the rink with red lips and—
ELLEN: I was having a really good time.
DREW: And she was sexy as a mother—a feral creature. It was great. And it’s so screwed up for girls to think, Oh, because I don’t have that cookie-cutter model body, it must mean I don’t have the right body shape. And I love model bodies, but I just want women to embrace several body shapes. That’s the thing I love about derby. It’s really welcoming.
Crystal Renn talks about wanting to see all different body types; more diversity on the runway and discusses model types then and now.
“I’ve been through so much over the past two years and the main thing that I’ve learned is that I’m not perfect and I don’t have to be. I think it’s really important that you tell yourself every day that you’re beautifully and wonderfully made. And that you make sure that you have the confidence and if you don’t have confidence, tell yourself otherwise and keep, you know, giving yourself affirmations. You can even look in the mirror and tell yourself that you’re awesome. I think it’s really important to have confidence and to find the confidence within yourself. Whatever you dream of doing one day, don’t give up on that dream because you never know where it can take you. I followed my dreams and now I’m here today and I’m really blessed and I’m really thankful for everything that I have. Your imperfections make you beautiful and they make you who you are. So just be who you are and love yourself for who you are and just keep going.” - Demi Lovato (x)
