"Society's obsession with visible collarbones and hipbones and thigh gaps is quite ridiculous. The only person that should see that much of your bone structure should be your orthopedist."As I was taking my makeup off the other day, I studied my reflection in the mirror and thought "Well there goes my confidence." And then I literally stopped what I was doing and thought about what I had just said to myself and where that statement even came from. What is society and the world doing to girls that we think makeup should equal confidence? So I did a little digging in my brain, observed some of my peers, and formulated a few theories.
"I'm not interested in being the skinniest girl around. I have a big personality, a twig body just couldn't handle that."My whole, entire point? Change what you want about yourself because you want to, not because society tells you to. AND….Perfection comes only with the realization that you are, in fact, beautiful on your own. And yes, I mean at all times. Not just when you're all dolled up and ready to go out. You are so incredibly beautiful when you are sitting cross-legged on your bed in old sweats, hair in a messy bun, no makeup, gorging on peanut butter M&M's. You are beautiful when you're laughing with your friends at lunch, not caring about who might be staring. You. Are. Beautiful. Without makeup, without the latest skin product or straight-hair gimmick. And please, don't forget it.
