Let me start by saying , beauty is overrated!
Body image has been exaggerated since time immemorial and i feel obliged to join the movement that is trying to thwart and curtail the perfect body standards illusion.
At least, every man and woman in their lifetime has been unsatisfied with how they look, why? Because at least once have we compared ourselves with someone else, A someone the world has labelled a ‘god ‘ess’ of beauty‘
Easier said than done as it may seem, here are simple steps we can follow to help emancipate from the chains of body struggles and constant comparisons*I mean, I am no pro ,specialist or anything , I guess certain things are just more visceral, you don’t really need a degree in life lessons, or do you??*
1. Stop keeping up with the ‘Kardashians‘
You know the ‘Kardashians’ in our lives that we just can’t stop keeping up with, cut it! If you know you will obsessively compare yourself to someone on social media, do not hit that follow button.
Ow and just so you know ,no one posts a whack pic of them on Instagram,so you are probably comparing someone’s high life to your life bloopers.
2. Work out and eat healthy.
You probably saw that coming didn’t you? I mean, as long as you are healthy on the inside, it is going to be harder not to feel good and happy about your physical appearance as well, Endorphins will be all up in your business like.
3. Don’t settle for mediocrity
Make it stop!! Those mediocre friends and lame talks that body shame others or body shame you in particular, do not tolerate. Be as vocal as you can and put an instant stop to body shamers. What’s the worst that could happen?
4. Love yourself
Cheesy and cliche as it may sound.There is no other way to say it but learn to love the skin you are in so others can love you as well. Honestly, it is hard to love someone who hates themselves.
You are beautiful.
