Okay so in this post i’m going to talk about insecurities. and overcoming them!! •
to start this off, i love the picture in the top left. mainly because, a few years ago, i can’t imagine me just dancing and spinning and goofing off in the middle of the street in front of tons of people while getting my picture taken. i have always been a happy person & try to be outgoing but before i would probably be too scared to dance around in front of people because i cared too much about what they thought about me. which in hindsight is crazy because i mean, who really cares. you do you!! the past few years i have grown so much and gained so much more confidence in simply being who i am & it feels great. •
another thing, the picture on the right. for years i have considered the right side of my face “my bad side”. as lots of us girls do, we choose a side of ourselves that we like and we get so comfortable with that side, that we find ourselves not taking pictures unless we are facing that good side. why do we focus and worry about such small details like that? i’m so guilty of it. and lately i’m just so happy because i’ve began to let those feelings go. i’m smiling on both sides. being comfortable in my own skin.
last thing. hair. for years my hair consumed me. until my senior year of high school, i straightened it and curled it all the time trying to make it look smooth because almost all of my friends had that beautiful straight glossy hair. & i tried to have that. but i realized my senior year and first year of college that it is pointless to try to have something that you simply do not have. i began embracing my natural curls and in the last 3 years i have only used heat on it a few times. & it feels like such a relief to just accept myself for who i am!! and that’s not saying that i never doubt myself. because i do. i see girls with long straight hair and i get so jealous. but then i just push those feelings aside and tell myself how thankful i am for what i have! and remind myself to be content and confident in what i was born with. •
i hope you all do the same!! love yourself!! begin accepting yourself for who you truly are. thrive in that! love you guys 🌸
