Love your body

You are perfectly and wonderfully made…

Your thoughts (43)

Yes, you! Every inch of your body is worthy of love, inside and out. Whatever your size or shape, you’re perfect the way you are. Thin or not, tall or short, you are enough.

Even though you know this to be true, sometimes your emotions get the better of you. You feel insecure and compare your body to others. You start wishing your hips are as curvy as your friend’s. And the weirdest part? Your friend might also be wishing her hips are slim like yours. Crazy, but way too real.

It’s normal to want what you don’t have. But you shouldn’t let it consume you. All bodies are different and all of us are unique in our own ways.

The world can make it hard for you to love yourself. Movies and magazines keep showing us the so-called ‘perfect’ body. If your body looks nothing like that, you might get all sad and blue. You might even start comparing yourself to someone who isn’t real.

When you’re stuck in that mood, it’s easy to stop appreciating yourself. And that’s the last thing you want to happen.


Instead, embrace the way you look no matter what the world tells you. Think of every single amazing thing about your body. How your eyes light up when you laugh. How your calves move when you run. How you’re just so fantastically awesome. Then chin up and keep loving your gorgeous self. Always remember: you’re special and worthy of love. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

When you love yourself, people will notice. You’ll send out positive vibes to those around you. Some people will be kind to you. But others will lash out at you. They’ll say mean stuff about your body and whatnot. If this ever happens to you, try not to take it to heart. Those mean people may have been influenced by that false idea of the ‘perfect’ body. So when they see someone who looks different, they lash out without knowing how much their words hurt. Never let them get to you. Your self-worth isn’t tied to anyone’s opinion. It doesn’t matter whether the world thinks you’re ‘perfect’ or not. What matters is how you feel about yourself. Real self-worth comes from within.

If there’s someone out there making you feel bad about yourself, here’s how to deal with them

Never forget: that wonderful body of yours is the only one you’ve got. Love it hard.

Hey Lumidee! Thanks for the comment. You should not let this affect you. People will look at you regardless so try not to let this get to you. You are in the best and only position to determine how you look and also how people see you. If you think being muscular is unattractive, you will see that other people will not find you attractive. But if you carry yourself and also see yourself as the most beautiful person on earth, you will see that everyone will find you attractive. You have a huge role to play here. Be confident and also be beautiful. We hope this helps

Your bow legs are what makes u a unique dancer. Don't care about what people say.

Awwwn! So u mean ma dancin wuld luk sweet if i do it with ma kinda leqs??

Hey Ryan! Thanks for the comment. Please do allow anyone to talk you out of your dream. Having bow legs cannot stop you from being a dancer. Like @Pinkisreal said, it will only make you look unique but stopping you, that ain't even possible. Please, go for it and we are sure that you will make an amazing dancer too. We hope this helps

Ryan someone told you that its not attractive? to be sincere I really like having bow legs but I don't when I see people with bow legs I kind of like it but it not the ones caused by sickness oooo I mean those natural ones and I know yours are beautiful and special I kind of hope to see you some days Ryan bye girl.

I want you to know you're perfect the way you are but if you want to slim down,there are a lot of exercise apps,do that and you will slim down,or go on a diet,not a diet that you will not eat at all,but there are drinks,like lemon and cinnamon and stuff,just google weight loss recipes and make them urself and they will help you,hopefully.

Wash your face morning and night with mild soap. Black soap is the best for your skin. Try to get it. You can also use dettol soap. Don't use dettol disinfectant liquid on your face it's harsh for treating pimples but you can bathe with it. Moisturize your face lightly anytime you wash it. drink water. don't ovwrwash your face it'll cause more oil.... take care of your face this harmattan... moisturize.. eat less oily foods eat fruits drink waterrr...i take like a gallon exfoliate your face which means removing dead skin cells.. do this by making a face exfoliator or using sponge with warm water... steam your face... by putting it over hot water and covering with a towel for some minutes so the steam opens your pores... then use cold water to rinse.. and clean and moisturize. always use cold water for your face... and skin. too but the weather is cold so you decide..

The problem is that society has kinda defined the perfect body type of a person,and once we're not like that,we feel bad about our body.

I'm unique, beautiful, smart, intelligent, special, perfectly and wonderfully made by God. I am proud to me.

Walking along the street with smiles☺,people reaaly admire me. Some people have called me and advice me never to mingle with most street boys and girls because they're dirty and mannerless. They admire me with words of advise and that really motivates me😇. But sometimes friends talk behind my back,saying I'm claiming as if I'm rich😶. Friends really respect me whenever I come around and they tend to hear from me whenever argument rises. I so much love myself
