Body Image and You!
We all love a good selfie, right? Well…… actually maybe sometimes taking selfies can be kinda stressful because actually you think you look terrible or your hair is doing this weird thing or you forgot to shave or the lighting is rubbish. Hang on, maybe taking a selfie is waaaaaaay more stressful than we thought!
There’s a whole bunch of young people in this video who totally get it (at some point we’ve all seen a photo and thought “I hate how I look!”) and they understand there’s a huge pressure on people today to look perfect because of social media. It can lead to serious body insecurities, but you’ve gotta remember that everyone has those thoughts at some point and we can’t all be hideous! Every single person is different, right? We don’t wanna all look the same, because variety is what makes the world an interesting place. Embrace the things that make you unique, and instead of thinking “I hate my ass” when you look at a photo – love that ass! It’s your ass, you’re not gonna get another, so give it the love it deserves!
Social media should be fun, not stressful, and remember that people’s nasty comments don’t matter – if anything, it makes them seem mean and being mean doesn’t look good. Anyone who’s being cruel online isn’t worth dealing with, you don’t need those haters in your life so forget about them. Focus on loving yourself – it’s the only way to live your life!
