Learning To Love Yourself. My Experience

July 16, 2017

Hey my loves!

One thing i have suffered with ever since i was in my early teens is low self confidence, it’s undoubtedly one of the most hurtful, tiring feelings in the world. Not feeling like you are good enough, not liking your figure or your features. They are all feelings i know way too well.

So, what makes me un confident, self conscious?

In the last few years I’ve really began to hate my boobs, they’re huge. (I’m sorry it’s kinda cringe) I’ve always felt like they bring me down (Quite literally) I often even cry and get really upset about it, I know what you might be thinking. That’s nothing that bad, there’s worse things to feel low about. To me it’s really affected my self esteem and how I see myself. I want to be able to wear pretty dainty tops and wear a nice bra rather than a Β£30 bra that looks like my nan’s. Girls with larger busts, who can relate to this? We can’t just walk into Primark and buy a simple Β£5 bra. The worst thing for me is even the DD+ range doesn’t do my size H cup. Meaning bras are not cheap, especially if you want a good supporting, pretty bra. It’s so frustrating!

But, and there is a very good but. I’ve been learning how to feel more confident in myself and how i look, not to the point i look in the mirror and think wow, I am gorgeous, who is that sexy gal. That most likely won’t ever happen. Sorry to sound negative but i am a realist. Saying that i will now think “You know what, I am who I am, that’s good enough for me. Yes i have flaws but everyone does” The most important person who needs to love you is yourself.

Being realistic. My chest will always be this size until one day when I’m rich (forever wishing) and i can afford the surgery to get them reduced. Until then i have to learn to be happy with them and accept my body for what it is. I can change it to a certain extent with exercise which i’ve been doing. So far i’ve lost 2 stone and it has truly boosted my confidence heaps.

So lately i’ve been telling myself something positive each day. Just looking in the mirror and saying something nice about myself. For example, I have a nice curvaceous shape or i have nice eyes. Just little things about yourself you can look at and think wow i actually like that feature.

I’m not saying that you’re gonna all of a sudden be super confident over night but you will feel a lot more positive and on the road to greater self esteem. I wish i could say some magic words to make you love yourself because trust me, each and every one of you are amazing!

Keep smiling gorgeous!

    Not only bras, its bathing suits too! You see all these adorable bathing suits everywhere but when I try them on I’m like yep, ok, the girls aren’t staying in that one if I’m moving at all…

    I love this! It’s so difficult when social media plasters size 6 girls wearing bikini’s everywhere, especially during summer, but it is important to be real!
