Recently, I’ve had a friend lash out at me in various ways because she doesn’t feel beautiful in her own skin. While this has been upsetting, I’m mostly saddened by the fact she thinks she needs to change to be beautiful and my friend is certainly not alone. I also constantly battle my own insecurities and I do my best to overcome these. However, I believe insecurities exist due to society’s expectations and judgements. My question is why do we put so much pressure on ourselves to be different when we’re beautiful in our own unique way? Dear readers, I want you to remember different is beautiful and you are beautiful just the way you are.
I spent many hours trying to start writing this blog post so I did some research and for me Caroline D James from Tiny Buddha says it best in her article titled the Beauty of Being Different. Check it out here https://tinybuddha.com/blog/the-beauty-of-being-different/
