We live in a world where people are constantly being judged on the way they look. I’m guilty of doing it, we all are. We strive to look the best, we spend minutes if not hours a day swiping through social media admiring everything we think looks beautiful. And as a result, we end up in a constant battle with ourselves over our appearance. This is my bikini body reality.
Over the last year, I’ve learnt to love the way I look and be happy with myself. But this hasn’t always been the case. I always used to compare myself to others and lacked confidence.
Does perfect exist?
Last week I was having a conversation with a friend who told me perfect doesn’t exist. I told him I disagreed, and he told me I’m chasing unicorns if I think it does.
Now I’ve been thinking about this for a while and I hate admitting when I’m wrong (I’m very stubborn), but I think he was somewhat right. No one is perfect and that’s because we all define ‘perfect’ in different ways. It’s subjective.
Whether it’s down to personality or looks. I have many imperfections and I’m finally content with that. We spend too much time being critical with ourselves and not enough time appreciating everything we’ve got! So let’s all learn to love ourselves more – not just for our looks, but for who we are.
My bikini body reality is filled with lumps, bumps and imperfect perfections. And to be honest, I’m completely happy with that. So with that thought, I’m going to raise a glass and get some cake in.
As always, thanks for stopping by! And if you can relate to this post leave me a comment in the box below.
