My mom and I were chatting Sunday night about ya know the usual, pretty clothes, upcoming trips, yaddy yadda, then we hit a topic of insecurities.
I think no matter what size, shape, height, weight etc you are, if you are a girl, you are GOING to have insecurities. I probably spend way to much time worrying about mine, but I would love to know how you get to the point of not worrying about them.
When will I be comfortable in my own skin?
I eat right, I workout 5 days a week, but I swear, like other girls, I can pick out 20 things I find wrong with myself. I listen to my friends and family do the same thing and I always think- “you are crazy girl, I dont know what mirror you are looking at!” But then I cant say the same to myself. I am sure its the week prior to my lovely time of the month when I am ALWAYS criticizing every inch of my body, but its starting to drive me nuts. I can go from being super confident one day, to the exact opposite the next.
I see little girls start to have insecurities at such a young age and it breaks my heart. It is a very HARD battle with yourself to overcome, I am still not over it and I am almost… GULP..30! My mom told me to think about what I would say to my little girl. I cant even imagine the things little girls go thru now compared to when I was little. It has to be 10 million times worse.
I think the lesson to myself is to be more confident and praise God for what he has given me. I need to spend LESS time picking apart the body he gave me and spend MORE time thanking him for all the blessings he has given me.
