Confession #18 The Eye Candy

I am sharing this confession as it is one of those straight from my heart.
Today morning I did video calling to one of my old friend and the second thing apart from saying hie he said was ” omg you looking so fatty ?”
And I was like yeah because I was bedridden due to some serious medical case and that’s the reason I put on weight.
Before disconnecting he one more time repeated me how beautiful I used to look earlier! And mentioned the long black hairs of mine he used to appreciate.
Now,
It’s 11:29 pm and I’m scrolling through Instagram for the 100th time today.

I see posts of happy people, pretty people.

People living their best lives, cuz ya know… that’s what you see on the internet.

Then I see all the ads.

Buy this and look pretty.

Wear this and look pretty.

Eat this and hey… you’ll finally look pretty.
That’s basically the message that’s constantly & sadly translates that “you are not enough.”
We live in a society that tells people – especially young girls – that there’s one standard of beauty.
This makes me mad.

Mad because I was not doing this yesterday but I am feeding on ig since I got stuck with a nail in my mind that I need to look more beautiful. Even if I am having a serious medical reason.

Who am I? An eye-soothing person? An eye candy for the society? No sorry, I am me. I know my chapters and this is one of those and I will read this too.
I am beautiful in my own way cause those who know my episodes still believe in me.

Why can’t we teach our daughters instead to celebrate who they are – just as they are?
Why can’t we teach them that beauty comes in different shapes and forms and that their uniqueness is beauty in and of itself?
We’ve gotten to a place where everyone pretty much looks the same. Or at least, tries to.

Same clothes. Same shoes. Same makeup.

Same butt. Same boobs. The same face, even.

So if you’re reading this, listen to me loud and clear.

You’re beautiful.

And you’re perfect.

Just the way you are.

Don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Don’t feel sad if you don’t fit in.

Learn to love your body and embrace every last imperfection – because it’s you.

And you’re awesome.

And there’s so much power in believing that.
