“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”
I’ve changed so much over the past couple of years, it’s not the sort of change I’m sure anyone who knows me would notice, but I have and it’s the sort of change I’m happy about.
I’ve struggled with my self confidence for many years and whilst it wasn’t as much of an issue as I got older, it was still an issue. I hated seeing full body pictures of myself, selfies were okay because I know the perfect angles that make me look the best. But images of myself taken by anyone else were a no, no. Not to be shared on social media, not to be shared anywhere at all.
I’ve previously written about how I feel more happy with myself in my post Learning to Love The Skin I’m in and whilst that was true then, it’s even truer now. I don’t know what it is, what’s changed for me, but I’m starting to see the good in myself and my body (not to be construed as me being vain please haha) but yes, I can see that I’m not disgusting and my body, whilst not typically beautiful isn’t something I should be ashamed of. It’s mine and I should appreciate it a little more, so I have started posting pictures of myself, my whole self onto my social medias. I still get frightened and have moments of self doubt, like anybody else, but I’m getting there I’m starting to feel more confident in putting myself out there and I think that deserves a moment of recognition, so I’m sharing a couple of images of myself here.
Love yourself, because you deserve to.
All my love as always, Daniella x x
