Desire of Our Hearts #2

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

It's time for another Desire of Our Hearts post. This time it will be about body image and loving ourselves. So here we go! (I apologise if this is quite a long blog post, but it is about something so important that needs to be said)

In school lately, I've been doing a lot of work to do with body image and how the media and other people may affect our perception of beauty. It's probably because I'm 14, which is around the time where people start judging themselves and comparing them to others. Before I talk some more, let me just tell you that you are beautiful. No matter what.

Whether you hair is long or short, your skin is pale or dark, your figure is slim or curvy or you're small or tall, it doesn't matter. You're still beautiful. Everyone has their flaws and things they don't like about themselves, but I bet if you asked someone else, they'd instantly be able to point out something beautiful about you. Just watch this video, I bet it will make you think differently.

I'm not saying that you shouldn't look after yourself, as everyone could drink more water, eat healthier and do more exercise, but no dieting or starving yourself, because there isn't any need to. You need to love yourself and be comfortable in your own skin. Don't try and change yourself, or convince yourself that everyone else is prettier than you, because you're the best you can be and you should admire that. 

That's all from me. If you're enjoying these new type of posts, then just let me know and more will be on the way!
