Topics For Discussion: Self Esteem
Hey you guys I'm back this week after a 2 week hiatus from these things. They just take a bit more time to write than I'd like to have time to. But back this week I have a topic of self esteem and self image issues people have. I understand but at the same time I don't. I used to have a real problem with self esteem and self image issues but overcame them in time. Not because I got cute or whatever, but because I found what really makes me happy, and I realized that the only person who is guaranteed to love you even if no one else does... is yourself. What made me realize this is when my father left. I realized that even if my own father would leave me, and he "loves" me. The only person who is really gunna be there for you and love you is yourself. So When i see people saying "omg why cant I look like her" or "ugh i hate the way I look". I just want to shake that person and tell them to appreciate the way they look. You will never be happy if you don't like what you see. Accept who you are and be happy you look like YOU and no one else. No offense to the twins to who read this. And there are some things people can do to work on their appearance. Don't complain if the things you are un happy about are 100% fixable. I don't mean to sound to come off as mean, rude or non understanding. I just know what some of you feel and felt. The thing that helped me feel better about myself and made me a lot happier was finding style. Which is a little ironic because a lot of people say that fashion and style is a superficial industry that only makes people hate what they look like. But, here I am completely happy with myself because I found fashion and style. Now, style may not be your instrument of happiness, but there is something out there for everyone. And there are always your friends and family you have. I've been lucky enough to have grown up to look they way I do and I feel incredibly lucky and am thankful. But even if I didn't grow up to be "good looking" I would still be happy with the way I look and who I am. Because I am happy, and I have found people who I keep around me who I am happy with. Life isn't all about looks, but being happy with who you are as a person and acceptance of who you are. Learn to love YOU. Or you will never be truly happy.
