Loving Your Insecurities

iStock_000025876167XSmallMany of us have insecurities, whether it’s the way our noses looks or the way our ears are shaped. I had many insecurities growing up. I really didn’t like it when people would always comment on how different I looked from the rest of my family. I didn’t really feel like I was part of my family because of how different I looked. Over the past few years I’ve learned how to love the way I look and how different I am from everyone else. I’ve also learned how to love my other “flaws,” like not having a thigh gap, or having big teeth. I feel like people struggle to see how beautiful they are inside and out! I find it really important to learn how to admire your insecurities because later on in life you’re going to feel uncomfortable when other people point them out.

Learning to accept your insecurities can be extremely difficult because you’ve told yourself multiple times that your insecurity is ugly or not perfect. I started learning how to admire and flaunt my insecurities when I stopped comparing myself to others. Comparing yourself to another human being is the worst thing you can possibly do because not everyone is perfect, people were made different for a reason. Once you stop telling yourself that your nose or ears need to be perfect, you can start loving them the way they are. The second thing I did to help me love my insecurities is when someone would point out how different I looked I would always say “thank you” instead of feeling embarrassed. Knowing that I was different was a good thing. Start taking comments about your insecurities as compliments. That way you can feel more comfortable with yourself and enjoy being who you are.

There is no such thing as being perfect; nobody in this planet can say that they’re perfect. Just because you love your insecurity doesn’t mean that you’re all that, it just means that you feel comfortable in your own skin. Don’t let anyone bring you down because of an insecurity. Loving yourself is all that really matters.
