Whether you are a guy or a girl, body positivity seems to be something that everyone struggles with at one point or another. You feel like you are too fat, or too skinny, and you never look as beautiful as the next person.
I used to feel like this, and was constantly criticizing myself. It is hard to say exactly what changed, but somewhere along the line, I began recognizing how beautiful I found girls who weighed much more than me, and questioned how I could think of myself as fat when I found them so beautiful. I realized other pretty girls actually had body types similar to mine, but they weren't me, so therefore, they looked better.
At one point in school, I got into a good routine of eating better and working out more. I was losing weight really slowly and looked basically the same, but I felt so much better than I had before.
All of these little things slowly started adding up until all of it hit me one day. I am beautiful, and so is everyone else in their own way. And if one person does not find me beautiful, it does not mean I am not, but it means they are not the right person for me. To be comfortable in my own skin is something I am so grateful for, but I get it can be hard. At the end of the day, you have to recognize your own worth before somebody else truly can.
Love yourself, inside and out, and even if you are not where you want to be, love yourself any way because you are on your way to what you want for yourself. Stop being so hard on your body.
You are beautiful.
