Insecurity and How I Aim to Overcome It

27 March 2016

I haven't always been secure in myself. This has often led to anxiety and low self esteem which I managed to hide very well. I always compared myself to other people and was never happy just being me. It has been a turbulent journey but now I can actually say, I really like myself. I always thought that being in a relationship, or being popular would make me happy but it didn't. I had to like myself and that is hard if your constantly comparing yourself to people, wishing you had their features, or that I was skinnier or that I looked like BeyoncĂ©. I really wanted to look like BeyoncĂ© aka Queen B but I soon realised that would be impossible and I better quickly like the person that God had blessed me to be. One day (slightly dramatic pause) I looked at myself and picked what feature that I liked. I picked my lips and I was surprised as people often made me insecure about my lips saying they were too big. Then it came to me if I like my lips why should I care if others don't as they do not live my life. I live my life not those damn fools so  I started wearing lipstick promoting my lips that I have learned to love and wearing confidence as a new accessory.

My Tips ( However I'm no expert )

1. Pick a feature and if you can't because you're being shy - ask a friend or family.
2. Promote that feature if eyes wear mascara or eyeshadows, the aim is to make those eyes pop !!!!
3. Stop Comparing Yourself as someone is probably comparing themselves to you.
4. Wear your confidence as a brand new accessory.
5. Be Happy as you are beautiful just the way you are.

    I know I need to stop comparing myself to others, but it can be a really difficult habit to break.
