An Open Letter To The Girl Who Thinks She Can't Wear Certain Things

Guess what, You CAN!

An Open Letter To The Girl Who Thinks She Can't Wear Certain Things
Emily Fricano

Dear Beautiful,

This one is for you.

Do you ever get a really cute article of clothing that looked perfect on you in the store and, by the time you get home, you think it doesn't look right and get self conscience?

Yea, me too.

I'm sure this has always been a struggle your whole life, dealing with your weight and feeling self conscious in certain things because "big" girls can't wear that. First of all, you can wear whatever you want, the only one telling you that you can't is you. Put on those shorts and look at yourself in the mirror and repeat this, "I am beautiful, and these shorts look cute!" (or whatever article you think you can't wear). Dance around for a bit and learn how to love yourself in that moment. After, you feel the best and so badass in your outfit. The problem is this was the easy part. Then, the constant worry comes in your mind of "what will people think? They will be staring at me and making mean comments, I can't do this!" This is the worst part about it because you feel so good two seconds prior but the thought of people not thinking you look good is what sends you back to square one.

Let me let you in on a little secret: most of the time no one will pay attention to what you wear and they won't be picking you apart in their brains. You see yourself differently than others do, so the insecurities you see and obsess over, other people most likely won't see them. We, as human beings, are always so hard on ourselves, especially if you are insecure about your body. Most likely, something you are insecure about someone else wish they had. It's true! The sadder part is that you will never grow if you don't go out of your comfort zone. I dare you to put on those shorts that make you legs look huge, or the shirt that makes your shoulders so broad. Accept the things that make you, you! Everyone has cellulite, everyone is insecure about themselves, and that needs to stop. You need to realize that you are beautiful just the way you are. You only have one life, why live in fear of what others think?

You are beautiful and you can rock anything you put on your beautiful body! Love yourself, and, trust me when I say this, I am constantly in your shoes. However, I am starting to love my body just the way it is and you should too! It is way healthier than being afraid of yourself.

Love,

The girl in your shoes.

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
