Learning how to love your body isn't an easy thing. I know what you’re thinking. I’m going to tell you the secrets of getting skinny or ripped. That’s not it at all. You’re beautiful the way you are. This is all about body positivity. Embrace that cellulite, those stretch marks (I have plenty), that little bit of belly pouch you may have. These are all traits that show you’ve lived life. Every bump, indention, and jiggle is a story.
Everyone is different and that’s what makes life interesting. Know that every female and male (yes, boys you’re included in this) wants something they don’t have. Instead of hating your body because you don’t have that, compliment those who do. For example, my fiancé has a nice, perky booty that I’m envious of but she wants the flat abs that I have. That just proves that it's important to learn how to love your body.
Don’t think I have forgotten the way we feel inadequate compared to most celebrities. Photoshop is great, isn’t it? I’m not going to deny they are beautiful as well but their “flawless” beauty from their faces to their legs are generally photoshopped and airbrushed. They are human just like you and me. They have the same issues. They have those breakouts and are prone to the lovely bumps called cellulite. There’s no shame in having them as a goal if that helps you stay motivated if you have a certain goal in mind. Just remember every person has a different shape. Some are just made curvy and some are thin. No body shape is better than the other.
Embracing your body doesn’t mean you can’t change it if that’s what you want. There are exercises and healthy living that can help you reach those goals. Just don’t forget to love the skin you’re in while doing it.
