31 days of self-love challenge: Day 26

What parts of yourself are you ashamed of?

Well, this one is also decently tough. I have a very weird body image of myself and I’m assuming since the question says ‘parts’ that it means parts of the body. I really don’t like the word ashamed here. My body is a great thing. I can walk, run, lift heavy objects, and I’m not in pain (unless it’s my knee but that’s another story). Because of that, I know my body is amazing and does some really great things like keep me alive and allows me to do the things I love.

However, there definitely are some parts of my body I don’t always necessarily love. And I would have to say that those would probably be my thighs, stomach, and smile. Thighs and stomach are pretty self-explanatory as most girls people aren’t too fond of these body parts in general. My smile, on the other hand, is one that I don’t think is too common for people to not like. I used to really like my smile but it’s like sort of crooked (some people like but I can’t stand haha0 and like I hate that my upper lip is basically non existent when I smile sometimes because a lot of people make fun of people with smiles like that on twitter which makes me, even more, self-conscious about it than I already was… but yeah those are my 3 biggest things on my body I don’t necessarily like all the time

  1. What? … I mean what is with people making fun of other people’s smiles? That is such bs and i’m sorry if it happened to you 😦

    I was talking to my friend the other day about this whole “accepting ourselves” thing and we sort of agreed that loving yourself and accepting the way you are doesn’t equal not wanting to change anything. It’s good to always improve, and try to be better, but it should come from a different place, not because someone hates themselves.

    1. It’s never happened directly to me (that I know of) but in general a lot of people are rude to people who don’t have much of an upper lip when smiling which I think is really shitty.

      And I LOVE that way of thinking about accepting yourselves. I totally agree with how you guys put that!! πŸ™‚
