“Don’t pay attention to what others think of you.” “Their opinions don’t matter.” “They’re only making fun of you because they feel bad about themselves.”
All the sentences people have said to me when I get made fun of, especially when they call out my insecurities. Living in todays world, society judges…. Hardcore. Maybe not out loud, but rather inside their heads so nobody can hear their thoughts on others. So because of this everybody is being made fun of because of things they are very insecure about and can’t change.
A few posts ago I wrote about having confidence. In that post I said to show off your insecurities, don’t let others get to you, and just have fun. I’m not going to lie, I struggle to do that sometimes. Every time I go tout somewhere in public I feel like people are judging me and it makes me feel so self conscious about the way I look and what I’m wearing. It’s hard when you feel really confident one second and the next second somebody brings up something you’re insecure about and your day gets ruined. It takes a lot to be able to brush it off like it’s nothing. Some people don’t even announce their insecurities for fear others will constantly notice it, or it will change how others perceive them. Today I’m going to tell all of you what I’m insecure about and what I don’t like about myself.
For starters, I hate my jawline. It’s little and not as prominent as I want it to be. The double chin life is real! Today, if you don’t have a nice jawline, you basically aren’t attractive… according to society. Well I saw screw society! If you have 23 chins, let the 23 chins show! It doesn’t make you ugly. It makes you beautiful. One of a kind.
I also don’t like my voice. I sound like a cow mixed with a little boy who is about to go through puberty… with the voice cracks every other sentence. I hate having my voice on video because I think I sound horrendous. But I’m done caring about my voice. I’m going to talk in videos all I want!
Chicken legs. I. Have. Chicken. Legs. My mother decided to bring back my childhood nickname “chicken legs”. Now everybody calls me chicken legs. But hey, if they look like chicken legs they must look pretty delicious because who doesn’t love chicken?!
My ears. When I was born one of my ears sat higher up than the other, and one stuck out farther. So my glasses always sit cock-eyed. I’m glad I’m a fond lover of contacts! My glasses either rub against my ears or fall off my face. There is no in-between. Dear contacts, don’t ever leave me… – an avid user.
As you can see, I have a lot of insecurities, but that isn’t going to stop me from living my life how I want. If people feel the need to talk about how ugly I am, go ahead because I know my self worth. (I also like to make fun of myself). That’s such an important thing to know. Know your self worth. You are all worth it. Every single one of you reading this. Whoever you are, you are beautiful. Don’t every forget that. Don’t be afraid to get out there. I challenge everybody to comment something they are insecure about! Brush off what everybody says and let your insecurities show! I hope you all liked reading! (Sorry I’m posting this a day late… I got lazy don’t hate me!) 💙
