It’s my perception about myself. The way I feel about myself when I look at the mirror.
My value as a human being is not measured through the numbers on a weighing scale, or how big the gap is between my thighs, or how visible my ribcage is. These are all lies that society and media has made to make money through objectifying women.
It is their job to sell people “beauty”, and their definition of beauty is usually in the form of photoshop, airbrushing, and starvation to look the part. Nobody really looks like that on a regular day. I have learnt to embrace my weirdness, my quirks, my flaws, and my imperfections. All of which makes me beautiful and perfectly me. Perception is everything. No matter how old, how big, how skinny, how tall, how short am I… if I always choose to see my beautiful parts and if I always have good thoughts about myself, I will always look beautiful.
Talking about imperfections, I have a chubby face to an extremely normal body, Small asian nose in a weird combination with fuller Kardashian lips along with large alien eyes and Bushy eyebrows.
I didn’t feel the same always. It took me a really long time to love myself just the way I am. But the day I did, I realized I enjoyed being different. I enjoyed being loved for the way I looked and that boosted my confidence.
