I haven’t logged into this blog in a long time. I’ve been going through some weird stuff this past year. I used to feel extremely confident in myself, but for some reason, my confidence has been dwindling. I find myself comparing myself to other women. I find myself worrying that my boyfriend will leave me over something as shallow as a hotter body. Although I know my fears are irrational, and I know my boyfriend is not that type of person, it’s still hard sometimes. It’s easy to convince yourself that you’re not good enough for admiration. It’s easy to convince yourself that your belly is disgusting and needs to be hidden at all costs. I think part of the reason I’ve been feeling so terrible about my self-image is due to the Internet. I am constantly being hit with images of unrealistic-looking bodies that have been airbrushed or abused in order to look the way they do. Or pornstars who live on diets and are able to pay for laser hair removal. I think it’s also a pain in the ass because I see men gawking over these images of women. It makes you feel like you are not worthy of any affection because you don’t resemble them. I feel so guilty and ashamed that I feel this way sometimes because I really am a beautiful woman. I like a lot of things about myself, such as my legs, my hair, my eyes, my feet, and my down-there lady parts. But I forget about these things in the midst of all the other shit. So, anyway. I decided to open this blog back up again in order to help myself and others. I hope that you can get some inspiration to love your body for what it is from looking at this blog. And know that you are not alone.
