Battling my weight has always been somewhat of a common occurrence for me. I’ll go through periods when I don’t care what I look like or what others think about me and other times I’ll hesitate to leave the house. Our society puts so much emphasis on the way people should look, how we should eat, how we should be. Even the people closest to you seem to always have an opinion about your body.
For me, sometimes I feel like my head is drowning. All of these phrases and labels are thrown around and are essentially pushed down our throats. How am I supposed to form any sort of opinion about myself? How am I supposed to love who I am when all I know of myself is what I hear through other people’s mouths?
My second Insecurity piece for my Love Thy Self series. I’m so proud of this one and it’s all true. These are direct quotes I’ve heard from people I know, magazines, tv, etc. It just seems to be never-ending and it can be hard to keep my head above water sometimes but at the end of the day, deep down, I do love who I am. NOT based on the way I look but I know that I am a good person and that’s all that matters. If you don’t like me because of the way I look then I don’t need you in my life.
