Love Yourself and Others too!

So, this is going to be a different blog post, not really something I normally do, and if you don't like it or if it doesn't work then we don't have to do it again do we? 

Recently, I've been noticing a lot of people who are unhappy with the way they are, the choices they're making and the things going on in their life and I've realised how messed up society is. As the years have progressed, society has started to accept that bigger is beautiful which is a good thing, we needed to stop girls from starving themselves just to get this perfect image, but sometimes, the smaller more petite people are getting left behind. There are more and more people nowadays who say that people can 'love their curves' and that skinnier people need to gain more weight to fit into this stereotype. Actually no. I'm a petite person myself and to hear people say 'thigh gaps are ugly' or 'skinny makes me sick' or 'oh god just eat something' really upsets me. Lets put it this way, you wouldn't go up to a naturally bigger person and say 'You need to stop eating' so why go up to a smaller person and tell them that they need to eat more?! Sometimes, being naturally smaller is better, and if others are allowed to love their curves then we should be allowed to love our bones and our thigh gaps. The main fact is, that if you're big, or small, or curvy then you're beautiful and you need to embrace that. We're all the same at the end of the day, we all have two eyes, a nose, a mouth, a heart and we all have feelings. 

Something aggravating me is from the song 'All About That Bass' by American Songstress Meghan Trainor, making it seem that skinny is ugly, but no one is noticing this! I understand that she is trying to promote body confidence which is amazing, as you can probably tell, I'm all for people appreciating and accepting themselves BUT with lines like 'go ahead and tell those skinny bitches that' and 'you know I won't be no stick figure silicon Barbie doll', I think that it is completely wrong. Basically, what those lines are saying is that it's okay to have curves an a 'booty' but it's not okay to be skinny. If someone released a song saying that bigger girls weren't beautiful then there would be a public outrage! Whatever your size, wherever you shop, whether you're a size 0 or a size 22 then you're beautiful and you need to stop comparing yourself to other people, stop listening to the media and do what makes you happy. If you want to eat Pizza for Breakfast, then you go have Pizza for breakfast. If you want that chocolate cake in the fridge, then you go eat that whole cake! Don't let society change you, just do what makes you happy. 

Another thing annoying me, is that people can't accept imperfections. We all have them, even Beyoncé has them (hard to believe I know) but we just have to accept them. I know it's not easy, it's taken me so long to come to terms with myself, but once you realise that you are who you are and there's nothing you can do about it, then life becomes a little bit brighter. The people who you really need in your life will look past your imperfections and get to know the real you, they'll appreciate what a beautiful person you are, flaws and all. Your imperfections make you who you are and without them, you wouldn't be the same, being different is better than trying to fit into a crowd. Embrace who you are and just work it. Don't go changing to try and please other people because it doesn't work that way. Do what makes YOU happy!

If you have faith in anything, have faith in the fact that our life is planned and everything we do, every choice we make is sent for a reason and one day you'll look back and be glad things didn't work out the way you once wanted them too. You need to stop being so unhappy with yourself, you're perfect just the way you are. Stop wishing that you looked like other people, because you don't know how many people are looking at you wishing they looked like you. Be confident in your own skin and if people don't like you for it then wave your middle finger in the air and just embrace who you are because you are beautiful. There is nothing that gives anyone the right to judge who is pretty and who is ugly, so stop. Be kind to everyone, treat people the way you want to be treated but most of all, never stop dreaming because dreams are what make the world go round and one day, your dreams might just become a reality.

I'm sorry it was a little bit of a ramble, but I just feel like so many people are calling themselves 'ugly' but they don't realise how truly beautiful they actually are. Keep smiling and keep being beautiful!

Lots of Love
