L’wren Scott once said, “Enhancing a woman’s silhouette and enhancing a woman’s beauty- both contribute to enhancing her confidence.” I became more confident in myself when I stopped trying to be someone else’s standard of beauty. Sometimes, the hardest thing to wear is our own skin. Whether you are male or female. If you are in the process of trying to change your body, then be content with what it is right now. If you aren’t happy with yourself now, then I promise you, you will never be happy with yourself. Your body is a temple, so take good care of it. Mentally, physically, and emotionally. Don’t ever risk your mental health to meet societal standards.
Accept the person looking back at you in the mirror. You shouldn’t work out to impress anyone else. Work out because you respect, love, and want a healthy body. There is not a single person who will validate you enough to make it last. Hearing approval from others is a great temporary feeling, but when you truly find self-worth, you learn that you no longer need to hear it from anyone else.You matter. You are important. You have worth. You’re loved. And your presence makes a difference whether you realize it or not.
