Body Confidence and Why I Probably Lack It

“I don’t make a big deal out of it 24/7, but I’m not too closed off about not being happy with myself. It’s not something I make a huge effort to deny, either.

Whether you’re skinny or slightly more on the chubby side, everyone pretty much has this issue at some stage. It annoys me a lot when I see cover models who are absolutely perfect say ‘oh I’m so fat LOL’ for attention, because you’re not and you know this. People who do that soak up all the comments from naïve people saying like, ‘no you’re not you have a great body’ and shit and I feel like if I saw that I’d just be like ‘Yeah you really are.’

I’ve recently been thinking I’m too fat for my age, which is ironic because I always used to think I’m too skinny.

I still do, if that makes any sense at all.

My arms are too skinny and my middle is too fat. Do I lose weight, do I gain weight, I don’t know! I’ve never been a fan of ‘health foods’, you know all the fat free yoghurts with the fruit bits in it, and all the vegetables, and the actual grossness that is brussel goddamn sprouts (they no joke taste like leaves, nothing else, just soft leaves) so I stick to food I enjoy.

The issue with food I enjoy is that it’s normally unhealthy, making my middle and my legs look more fat while my arms be stayin as matchsticks.

Great.

I’m actually pretty open about not liking myself. I don’t make a big deal out of it 24/7, but I’m not too closed off about not being happy with myself. It’s not something I make a huge effort to deny, either. Most of my friends can relate, honestly, and it’s nice to share those ‘I have crippling depression and I hate life and I wanna die’ jokes, even though to some people it could be concerning, but it’s just relatable to us.

If I could end this any way, it would be- don’t think you aren’t good enough, because the people who tell you that aren’t either. One girl called my friend fat, and while she is a bit chubby, the girl who said it is HUGE. Literally. I know you shouldn’t body shame people, but maybe her ego was too big to fit in a normal weight body so now she’s just really fat. To anyone who complains that I’m ‘body shaming,’ she did it to someone else, talk about kettle calling the pan black.

If you enjoyed this, like and feel free to follow, I’m a bit new here.

See ya next time.

One thought on “Body Confidence and Why I Probably Lack It

  1. body positivity is such a good concept but the practice of it seems so complicated. I’m an in-between body (not skinny but not chubby) and it feels like all of my body parts are like…not ideal but not bad? and i feel guilty for not liking my body when there’s nothing to dislike, but i feel like it’s nothing special either.

    I guess bodies aren’t put on the world to look good, but still. I’d like to have a pretty bod. this post is v relatable.
