Feeling comftable in your own skin?

Hey guys,


Something everyone struggles with. There is not one person on this planet who doesn't have an insecurity. Insecurities are normal, its part of being human, but sometimes we can let them overpower us, taking control of our bodies and daily routines.
I don't think anyone is particularly in love with their body or reflection. Yes you get really confident cocky people and yes there's nothing wrong with loving yourself, but some people are one extreme to another.
The hardest thing to realise being a teenager or just a general human being, is that no one is actually perfect. You might look at magazines and think why am I not that skinny, why can't I do my makeup like that. Comparing yourself to people is the worse thing you can do.
I wish when I was younger I took my mums advice, not to let people get to me, the amount of times I've ruined my appearance due to someone making a comment, not realising they were only doing it to bring me down because they felt bad in their own skin. I wish I stood in photos with my friends, I didn't want to appear on a camera until I was 17, hating on myself so much growing up is one of the worst things I regret. If I could give any piece of advice to you, please don't waste your entire teenage years hating on who you are as a person
It takes time to feel comfortable in your own skin, it took me until I was 17 to actually make eye contact when someone had a conversation with me. Its ridiculous how much body image powers over us, I feel stupid that I let my appearance knock me so much I could barely speak to people in case they would look at my flaws. Its scary how your mind can completely change
I decided that I was going to pursue my dream of being a journalist and not let people get to me. Its scary because I actually haven't looked back to that day, I woke up one morning and decided I was just going to be me and that wasn't the girl who was shy and hated her appearance
pretty deep I know, but allot of you think there is no way out, I have battled with anxiety since I was 11 just because stupid girls and boys tried to destroy me as a person and they succeeded until I was 17
You have to make a plan and stop putting so much pressure on yourself, just because your makeup went wrong doesn't mean you're ugly or a failure.
Learning to like yourself is one of the hardest things I have ever had to go through and I'm still trying now, I hope one day I'll be able to say nothing bothers me anymore, BUT all I can say is I'm a much happier person and as I've said when I decided to get out of that mindset I haven't looked back since
