Accepting myself for me

Hello

This seems like a very weird post to do but over the past few months I have gradually started to see myself for me, and liking it. For many years I have been incredibly self conscious and I have hated the way I look. I think the main reason I have never been happy with the way I look is because all my life I have had people tell me how fat and ugly I look. Those thoughts can get into someones head and make them incredibly uncomfortable in their own skin.

There are some parts of me that I wish were different, my weight for example. I can change my weight but its something that bothers me to much, I'm not unhappy with my weight but I would feel more confident if I were a little slimmer. 

I want to stop babbling and get to the actual point of this post, which is that this year I have learnt to accept myself for the way I look and actually seeing that I'm not ugly. I'm not saying this in a vain way, am I as pretty as Angelina Jolie? No, but I can see that I'm not that terrible and that some parts of me are pretty. This seems quite big for me, I'm finally comfortable with myself and I think that that's partly down to the people in my life. Since leaving school I haven't really talked to people from my school, they had a negative influence on me and most of them made me feel ugly and uncomfortable. This year however I have spent more time with family and have met some incredible people how I am so lucky to have met and created friendship's with. 

If you struggle to feel comfortable with who you are and what you look like, just remember that you are gorgeous and for the small amount of people that make you feel like your ugly and pick on you, just remember that they don't matter, The only people that matter are your family and to be honest, the only opinion of you that's important is yours. Have faith in yourself because you are amazing and if some people choose not to see that, then that's their loss.  If you struggle with body confidence or just want to comment, tell me one thing you love about yourself, it can be something about they way you look or even about your personality, for me its my eyes. I love the colour of my eyes and I love the fact that I have a pretty good sense of humour (If you can class sarcasm and wit as humour). 

Sorry for this post, it seems a bit depressing but I feel I needed to get all this of my chest.

Thanks for reading.
Bye for now xxx
