Body confidence |

Hello


Body confidence is something that has always been an issue for me, the image that girls and boys are shown is baffling. All the magazines are filled with what society say is the ideal image and that if you look different to it them your either to fat or ugly. I hate this message that is being published to children and teenagers. I have loved watching Louise from Sprinkleofglitter for years and she talks about body confidence, I found her blog posts and videos really helpful for body confidence. Go and have a little look on her channel or blog because she talks sense and makes you feel great about yourself.

All images of models are all airbrush anyway so they might as well just stick a picture of a Barbie doll in their magazine and say that that's what everyone should look like. I feel like its bad enough for people to grow up around kids that pick on them because of what they look like, let alone them reading about what people feel is acceptable. I wanted to write this post because it shocked me how young teens think they should look, I overheard a conversation when I was out the other day, I heard a couple of girls that were about 12 say that they could only dream of being size 0! This girl wasn't big, she looked perfectly healthy yet she's been influence by magazines about what you should look like and that's terrible. People come in all shapes and sizes and there's nothing wrong with that. I don't see why there is such an issue with what people look like, who cares?

No matter how big or small you are in weight, height or even shoe size you are perfect and don't let anyone say your not. So many people don't have body confidence because of bully's, let alone the media. Stop trying to be the airbrushed women or men in the magazines because they are not realistic, those pictures are photo shopped to show flawless skin, no cellulite, no freckles or anything that makes them real. Embrace what you look like because I guarantee you are beautiful and you just need to believe that you are.

Bye for now xxx
