Feeling Down About Your Body? You Shouldn't

Friday, April 8, 2022

A lot of people have body confidence issues, which is no surprise when we live in a society that thrives off of telling you that you should hate yourself if you don’t look like a cover model. The truth is that this is not the reality for the majority of people out there and the narrative surrounding this issue needs changing. It ends with a lot of people feeling down about their body when they absolutely shouldn’t be. The human body is a wonderful and complex thing, and you should love yours.

Bodies Come In All Shapes And Sizes

One of the things that we all need to understand and accept is that bodies come in all different shapes and sizes, much like flowers do. You don’t often find someone comparing a daisy to a rose, even though one is going to be someone’s personal preference, and the other anothers. This doesn’t matter, does it? No, because they are both beautiful in their own right, and this is true of bodies and people as well. As long as your health is not being damaged by the state that your body is in right now, what’s the problem? We all look different, and it’s not something to be ashamed of.

Body Modifications You No Longer Like

It might be the case that when you were younger, you got body modifications that you no longer like. If this is true for you, and it’s something like a tattoo or piercing, then you can get these sorted quite easily. With the piercing, you just need to take the stud or ring out of it, and eventually it will heal and close up on its own. You don’t actively have to do anything, and this will be sorted for you.

Tattoos for example are a little bit trickier, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing that can be done. There are a few options including a tattoo removal cream that you can try. It will fade the tattoo until it is barely recognizable, which should help you feel better.

Not Happy With Your Weight

Finally, if you are not happy with your weight then there are things that you can do. However, you should only consider these things if that is what you want to do, and not somebody else. If you want to lose weight, then there are plenty of diets that you can look at, you can join a gym and exercise regularly and so on. If you want to gain weight, then you need to be eating more calorie dense foods.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the reasons that you should not be feeling down about your body. Try to think of it this way: your body takes care of you. Your body is what gets you through everyday, and your body is the thing that will keep fighting for you as hard as it can, no matter what. Your body is amazing, no matter what it looks like.
