"If you're not a size six, and you're not good looking
Well, you better be rich, or be real good at cooking
You should probably lose some weight 'cause we can't see your bones
You should probably fix your face or you'll end up on your own"
Why do we hate our body? Why do we feel worthless, insecure, not good enough? Why do we feel as if we are not right?
It could be “childhood programming”. Our parents, other relatives, friends, neighbors, teachers, bullies, advertisements and media told us so. It's good to know why, because it shows that we are not just "weird", there is a reason for everything. And it usually lies somewhere in our childhood.
Look at it, recognize it and understand yourself better. But who ever and whatever caused it, doesn’t matter anymore. Because we can not change our past.
But we can shape our future by making changes, NOW
Make this promise to yourself:
From this moment, I take responsibility for my own happiness. From today on, I claim my life back. From this moment, I love myself exactly as I am.
These beautiful girls share their story on youtube. I personally can relate to so many things they mention. To me, just knowing there are lots of other young women who went through (or still going through!) the same shit, makes me feel better. And at the same time, videos and blogs like these made me aware that there are so many more girls out there, who need to hear the message. Who need to know they are beautiful, loveable and wonderful. The earlier, the better!
