For you to boost your self-esteem, you have to love your body. But learning to do so is quite difficult for most ladies. Here’s how you can achieve that.
Being ashamed or unconfident with one’s body is most common among women. Get this, ladies just don’t want to look beautiful, they want to feel beautiful as well. This is why women go the extra mile of going for booty implants, face lifts, hair implants, you name them; just to feel beautiful.
There are so many factors that contribute to a woman’s body insecurities. Factors like; not being complemented by the opposite sex regularly, having a mindset of ‘I’m not beautiful’, or having the ‘I’ve been body shamed a number of times’ thoughts swinging through a woman’s mind, among other things, can make a woman feel bad about of her God-given body.
The truth is, while some have been blessed with jaw-dropping bodies (wish I’m one of them), others are not. But then, here is another fact; every woman is beautiful in her own way. How about you stop comparing your body to others and focus on working with what you have, to achieve the radiant beauty you so desire. Wondering how that can be possible? Read through the following ways to love your body, as well as becoming the pretty girl you have always wanted to be.
Own and Love Yourself
It’s all in the mindset. First off, you have to love yourself. Get this, No one can make you secure but yourself. Again, the world will not stop to work around your insecurities. You need to toughen up, because, at the end of the day, your body belongs to you and nobody else. You can practice this; look at yourself in the mirror daily and say “I love you” to every part of your body, even if you feel otherwise. This can work with persistence. Say it until you believe it.
Build Your Self Esteem
You might not be like Kim Kardashian or Beyonce ( OMG! are they gorgeous), but you can be … yourself!. Also, the aforementioned people; apart from undergoing very expensive beauty routines that the girl next door cannot afford, are very confident women. This is because they do not rely on just their looks to feel confident and beautiful.
Though these women are beautiful regardless of their beauty routines (that we know), they are influential women known for their hard work and success in their various businesses. These women also rely on more important things like being a good person, working hard at their job, giving back to their community, and living a kind life. And so rather than focusing on your looks, think about those things you can do to feel good and fulfilled. These are ways to boost your self-esteem. Think about exuding excellence at what you do, helping others, and other factors that can attribute to confidence. Simply work towards being a better person than you already are. Try the business of ‘becoming better every day’, and you’ll be surprised to see the beautiful you.
Draw Out Your Confidence Routine
Sounds abstract; maybe, but highly effective. My take on this; stay active. It does not matter if you’re a size 4 or 14, the most important thing is to keep busy. There should never be a dull moment in your life. Of course, you can take out some leisure time to rest and reflect, after which you ‘get busy again.’ Also, include EXERCISE in your routine. Exercise is an important factor because all the feel-good hormones released during the activity, in turn, makes you feel good about yourself. Staying active helps you feel relevant and when you feel relevant, you definitely feel good about yourself. Sometimes, ladies only spend time admiring a good body rather than doing things to improve theirs . How about working towards achieving what you want?
Yes, haters; everyone has got one. But when it comes to women; they are often extremely critical of other women. And let’s face it, a good percentage of women who are ashamed of their body, do so as a result of being body shamed by their fellow women. This shouldn’t be your case; learning to deal with judgemental comments from people is key to boosting your confidence. It is very important to note that; there will always be mean-spirited body shamers, but if you learn to deal with such bullies, then you have taken huge steps to becoming the woman you want to be.
Help Other Women Feel Beautiful
This is one of the most effective ways of appreciating oneself. Some ladies find it difficult to compliment their fellow women, without knowing that in making others feel better, you feel better yourself. It might seem like a common thing among women, but hey! you can be different. Push competition aside and compliment your fellow woman; it will go a long way in helping you boost your self-esteem.
Know this; When you love your body, you will appreciate it for what it is, and never forget that beauty also comes from the inside. Practice this steps and you’ll see a beautiful you hen you look in the mirror.
