Learning to love your curves might sound impossible right now, but don’t resign yourself to hating your body forever. Anybody can learn to love their bodies. Not only will you develop more confidence when you do this, you should find that people react differently to you too. Here are some things you can do to learn to love your curves:
Realize That ‘Beauty’ and ‘Health’ Aren’t Sizes
Many people think of different things when they hear the words ‘beauty’ and ‘health’. However, you need to realize that these things have nothing to do with your size. Anyone of any size can be beautiful, and people who don’t have rock hard abs can definitely be healthy! Maybe you’ve lost a lot of weight and you’re struggling to come to terms with loose skin. In this case, something like tummy tuck surgery could help you to increase your confidence and love your curves. However, most of the time, there are alternatives to surgery that will make you look and feel amazing.
Never Compare Yourself To Another
Too many people compare themselves these days, thanks to sites and magazines showing perfectly photoshopped models. Although many of these models still keep schtum about what goes on after a photoshoot, many of them are opening up. We’ve now learned that:
- Yes, they take hundreds of pictures to get just the right angle.
- They suck their tummies in and contort their bodies to find the perfect angle.
- Many only share the pictures they are happiest with.
- When they sit down, they have rolls too.
- When they are standing normally, they don’t look all that different to the rest of us!
Make sure you don’t compare yourself to anybody you see online. It isn’t healthy, and you’re uniquely and beautifully you!
Look At Great Hashtags Online
There are now so many great hashtags online. For example, the #GainingWeightIsCool hashtag that seems to be everywhere at the moment. By no means is this championing eating rubbish and purposely becoming overweight, as this wouldn’t be healthy either. It’s about realizing that those extra few pounds are your lunches and coffee dates with friends. It’s about realizing that feeling happy and good in yourself does not require you to have definition all over your body! It’s also about valuing your mental health as much as you value your physical health. Looking at these hashtags could inspire you.
Wear Clothes You Feel Great In
Wearing clothes you feel great in is going to increase your confidence and help you to appreciate your shape more. This isn’t about following fashion ‘rules’, it’s about doing what makes you feel good.
Appreciate Everything Your Body Symbolizes And Does For You
Got stretch marks? They represent your journey. Feel self-conscious of your big thighs? They help carry you from place to place. Your body tells a story, and has been with you through thick and thin. Start to appreciate it!
Learning to love your curves might seem difficult at first, but your life will change for the better.
