So I’ve definitely talked about this before but I feel the need to talk about it more and specifically about myself.
I try really hard to love myself and better myself, regardless of my insecurities. But it’s hard.
And in the past year and a half, my insecurities have skyrocketed. Mostly (almost exclusively) due to my appearance.
But I have decided to do something about that.
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you will have seen that I am doing #7DaysOfSelfLove in order to highlight the things I don’t necessarily like about myself and shine a positive light on them. If you haven’t seen the first video, I’ll leave links at the bottom of this post (and all around, y’all know I love my links). But here’s the gist of it:
For the week leading up to my 21st birthday, I will post a picture or video of myself talking about a part of my body that I’m insecure about but I will always end the message with something positive about that insecurity. On top of these, I will continue the theme of body positivity through the rest of my posts this week.
And the point of this isn’t to make me feel 100% in love with my body right away, that’s something that’s going to take time. But this is meant to be a step in that direction.; towards self-acceptance. And I know there are ways to hide my insecurities but I don’t want to have to do that in order to feel good about myself. This is my way of reclaiming my body and telling myself that I don’t need to match a certain standard of beauty in order to BE beautiful.
So not only am I reclaiming my own beauty, but I want to challenge anyone who sees this or any of my tweets/Instagram posts to reclaim their own beauty. Post a picture on whatever social media you have and talk about a single insecurity with a positive outlook. Be sure to tag me @missmisfit97 on all media (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook) and also use the hashtag #7DaysOfSelfLove so I can find it more easily.
But that’s all for now,
Until next time x
Day 2: Instagram & Twitter
