This topic is going to seem like an oxymoron following all of these pictures of myself, but bare with me for a second.
I posted on my IG stories last week about insecurities and how I’ve just been feeling blah lately. I hate my hair, I hate my outfits, I hate how pale I am … basically it’s just been one of those months where everything I wear looks bad and my hair just won’t act right. It got me thinking about insecurities and how people probably think that bloggers and social media people, like me (who plaster ourselves all over the internet) are probably super confident and very self-assured, but honestly, I couldn’t be more opposite.
I think it’s important to let you all know that I have just as hard of a time with self-esteem and insecurities like any normal person (or maybe not so normal) does. I will sit in front of the mirror and just pick at my skin or catch a glimpse of my arse in a fitting room mirror and see the cellulite and want to scream. I think this is normal though, right? I really do think we, as women, beat ourselves up too much. I am one of those people that can find beauty in every person out there, so why am I so hard on myself? I am really trying to work on my insecurities and not be so obsessive with them. I will leave you all with this quote if you may be struggling with the same things, “It’s not what you are that is holding you back. It’s what you think you are not.”
Keep it real, friends!
