Women are no strangers to the dissatisfaction looking in the mirror can sometimes bring…the nose that was always a little too big..the boobs that grew briefly during puberty and stubbornly refused to make more progress, the extra kilos that just won’t go away a year after the baby was born..etc
We have experienced this,some more than others,some earlier than others.
The factor to be blamed for these issues is that annoying word ‘Comparison’. There would be no MORE if LESS didn’t exist. Unfortunately, I believe if there’s a god of comparison, it must be a female. We are constantly scanning other females, sizing them up and assessing how we measure up to the ‘ideal’. When we fall short-or assume we do-we get dissatisfied.
I feel this attitude achieves very little other than tamper with your confidence and make you feel less like the fabulous lady that you are.
Sometimes, your concerns are legitimate..maybe your weight gain creates real health concerns or you just feel better when you weigh less, then by all means, try a weight loss regimen. You can also use tools at your disposal -i.e makeup, bras, body shapers- to downplay your perceived flaws and enhance your assets. Be sure what your concern really is and how much mental space you are willing to give it.
To wrap it up, it’s all in your head. Your thoughts dictate to the mirror. If you feel confident and walk with a spring in your step and a bright smile plastered on your face, that’s what people will see and remember about you.
Remember we are all wonderfully but uniquely made.
