I like.

If someone asks you to name 3 things you don't like about yourself chances are you'd probably be able to answer quite quickly- I know I would. But most of you would probably find it a little harder to answer if I asked you to name 3 things you do love.

This is quite common and usually due to issues with self confidence following from a number of factors: The media, Social pressures, Puberty, Insecurity and Guilt. Why did I include guilt? Well..because in my opinion there is a big issue with people feeling guilty about liking themselves, worrying if it's seen vain to be confident and proud of yourself. So this is why I think we should break the stigma and really embrace who we are.

Here's my list of 3 things that I Love about myself and I'm proud to love. I want you to do the same in the comments, no matter how big or small.
  1. My nose: I have a strange nose. It's not necessarily small, but not huge either, and it curves up at the end. It reminds of a ski hill, or an elfs nose. But for some reason I do like it.
  2. My eyelashes: I have quite thick dark hair. I'm a hairy girl. My head, my eyebrows, my arms, my legs. Everywhere. This also means that I have quite thick dark eyelashes too. And I really like them.
  3. My belly button: I always used to question weather my belly button was an innie or an outie, but as I've grown older I've come to conclude it's an innie. I really love my belly button because it has this little mole beside it. I don't know why I like it for this reason, but I do. I also used to pretend it was a piercing when I younger, not quite sure why.

But there we go guys. 

Speak soon

      2.I like my eyes because they are multi coloured.
      3.I like my teeth because they are all weird shapes.

  2. Lovely post. I used to be really self conscious about a birthmark on my back, because people used to think it was dirt/mud, but I've come to love it so much, so now when people ask me about it I'm so proud! You're so lucky to have thick and dark eyelashes - I wish I did! Xx

  4. Oh, that's so difficult... I read your post yesterday and since then I've been thinking about my three things. They are...
    1) my eyes (shape, size, colour + long dark eyelashes)
    2) my wrists (I'm chubby but my wrists are still thin
    3) I can't think of this one ><

  7. I love my imagination
    I love my dark eyes and my ears even thought they're rather big. But I'm proud of it, because my grandfather had huge ears and even though I was SUPER CONSCIOUS when I was small of them, I don't really care anymore and tie my hair up in pony tails with no fear!
    That was a really great post, thank you!! ;)
