My view on beauty and self identity

Alright I 'm ranting on about what us teenage girls and young women face everyday the endless journey for perfection and being popular.

You may go "oh i'm so fat" when you face the mirror or compare yourself to your friends and everyone else. And I'm so sick and tired of everyone thinking like that .

But believe me I used to be self concious but now I'm not although I still have my moments.

Well heres my story:

When I was in year 6 the people who I thought were my friends turned on me , they called me things like " retarded" , "stupid " and " slut". I came home feeling like I was the most ugliest person on earth.

Bullying continued untill I was 15 although they left to boarding school I was bullied by this girl called Olivia who made me feel like I was ugly . She was a snob who would put you down and make you feel like you were nothing.

But it started to change when I met my bestie Kestrel when I was 13 , although she is 3 years younger than me she made feel like I was important. Whenever I said I was fat she yelled at me for it.

Kestrel taught me its alright to be different , you have to be yourself and you will make friends.

Many people will think maybe if I lost a bit of weight I will be popular , Well thats not the case you could become a person that you don't want to be. I 'm not the most beautiful girl in my school but I have traits , and personalilty . I have my own perspective about things .

Every woman is different . You are unique and no one else can be you . You have to learn to be comfortable in your skin.

For popularity being popular isn't always a good thing you can get bitched about behind your back , suffer from peer pressure or end up beoming a bitter person. Nowadays I have a group of friends who like me for me .

I'm what you call " a social outcast" but I don't care I like being my own person without having the pressures of being popular.

My advice is be yourself , be comfortable in your skin and just don't give a shit about what people say about you thats what I tell ppl nowadays who criticise me

I admire you for realizing that popularity isn't everything. Not too many girls your age think that. Believe me there's more to life than just highschool, boys, cliques and ditzy popular girls. In th real world, people are respected for their talent, accomplishments and good nature.

Thanks for the advice. This article is so true, i love all the messages in it aswell. I used to get bullied when i was younger but now i don't. Im more confident but i'm still kinder shy. I'm more thinner and i don't think people should think there fat because it isn't all that good being skinny either. I hate being skinny now becuse i don't like eating much and everyone loves the fact im skinny but i don't in actual fact i anna be fatter which is kinda wierd lol. I'm really popular at school but even if your the most popular girl in the world you'll still think no one likes you so i agree with everything your saying :) xXx
