Why can’t we see ourselves the way the ones that care about us, see us?
Wouldn’t that just make life so much easier? All of us go through our lives trapped in our own shell, with our own insecurities. Every single one of us, on this insane planet have at least one insecurity. Whether that be your body size and shape, your medical condition, what your skin looks like, and so much more! The list goes on and on! Society tears us down to the point where we hate ourselves! We see these celebrities, models, and even YouTubers, with these make-up tutorials, or un-natural bodies, etc.
That makes us think that we’d love to be like them! Why would you though? Why not be yourself? Why not show how beautiful you are, because everyone is beautiful in their own way! We need to learn to be comfortable in our own skin, we need to learn to love ourselves like the ones around us; love us. We all are down on ourselves, I’m guilty for it, I have insecurites that people say aren’t bad, or doesn’t look bad, etc. I still hate myself for it though. I know others do it too, when someone calls you handsome, or beautiful or anything in an act of kindness, we need to take it, and be proud of it, it can be hard, I know it is. I just hope that everybody can eventually see themselves how the ones who care about you, see you!
