What is about people and their low confidence these days? Who are we to blame for that? Social networks, society in general, internet, TV?
I can’t help but notice that most of my friends have deep self-confidence issues. They are always complaining: “ I have big thighs “, “ look at my nose “, “ my face is full of acne “ , “ I am a boring person, nothing happens to me “ etc… Then they try to hide all of these flaws away and become this perfect figure of a person. Why? Because society says so. Those invisible rules and measures flow through the air and dictate today’s values. While you’re on the internet you see these perfect examples of women and men, perfect bodies, perfect outfit, perfect photographs… Don’t believe in all that, nothing is perfect. Half of the ladies have eating disorder of some kind and wear a hell lot of makeup, they don’t have happy relationships, it’s all for the likes, same goes for guys. Money, thigh gap and flat stomach aren’t synonyms for happiness (although with money you can buy a lots of chocolate chip cookies and ice cream :#) but anyway don’t let this whirlpool of lies take you, stay true to yourself, be a weirdo, a potato, love yourself! Flaws make you who you are, they make you beautiful. 🌹
I don’t see your big thighs, I see a big heart and a head full of great ideas, I don’t see your nose, I see your amazing smile and the way your hands make love to the piano while creating the most beautiful symphony, I don’t see your acne, I see the way you look at the painting while we stand in the gallery trapped in our own world of thoughts, I don’t see a boring person, I see my friend.
Open your eyes and you will see it too…
