For a long period of time I've struggled with confidence issues. I still am but it got better. I've come to accept many things about myself. So I thought I would make a series of posts about this. About how I've learned to not be so harsh on myself. At the end of every post I will write an advice. Hope you will like it.
Let's face it. There are a few girls who are happy about their body. If they are skinny they want a larger bust. If they have a large bust they want a smaller one. If they are not skinny they become depressed whenever they see girls such as the models from VS. I used to have moments when I would skip meals, exercise almost two hours and drink only water. I was feeling dizzy, as if I was about to pass out. And I continued like this until I was to weak to workout any longer. The worst part for me (as I thought at that time) was that I hadn't lost the weight that I thought I did. So I woke up and realized that I wasn't about to carry on like this for to much longer. That's when things started changing for me. I've come to understand that my diet wasn't the only thing that I had to change. My lifestyle was. My way of thinking. And my way of seeing myself. I've started reading on the internet about girls who messed up their health because of ridiculous diets and unsuitable workout programs. So my first advice in learning how to gain confidence is this: if you have a healthy body, learn to love it.
Based on today's post, let's talk about how you've struggled with learning how to love your body.
