I remember as a teen, my friends used to joke and call me conceited and I thought nothing of it at first, but then I had to correct them, no I was not conceited I was confident, trust me there is a difference. I don't believe I am the most beautiful woman in the world, but that is not how I look at my self, I simply believe that I look the way I look and I am beautiful. And that is enough, not compared to anyone else, not because of or in spite of, just I am me, and that is enough.
Truthfully we all have something about us that we thought could be a little different, and nothing against those who have done plastic surgery but I think we should accept those things about us and move on confidently. We should not want to look like everyone else, women and men spend billions every year to look like someone else, they are that unhappy with what they look like, but your looks make you unique, it makes you stand out and it is okay if you look different than everyone else.
Once you become confident in what you look like, you get more confident in who you are, we often tie up who we are in what we look like, there are so many stereotypes that we have to debunk, if you are pretty then you are not smart, if you are smart then you are not pretty, for the longest time in the movies if you are described as having a great personality then you are not attractive. These days that is not as prevalent in the movie but it still exists.
A confident woman is sometimes looked on in an unfavorable term, but we know what happens when a woman lacks confidence, it is used as a weapon to put her down. Almost every part of the female anatomy is broken down, her face, her breasts, her waist, her hips, her thighs, her legs, her feet, everyone has an opinion on what looks better, but what if we decide enough is enough and just accept the way we look. There is no one shape that is perfect, we should chose to be healthy but our looks should not be based of what others think.
The movies, TV, magazines and social media bombards us with images that are impossible to maintain, and women make themselves sick trying to achieve those impossible standards, we have to realize that not even celebrities look like themselves all the time, so why should we try to look like them all the time.
Women we have to refuse to be defined by anyone else's standards
but our own and just be confident in who we are.
