Body Positivity Awareness: Embracing “flaws”

Everyone has something that they are insecure about. Whether it’s scars, stretch marks, pimples, etc. Everyone has something that they wish they could change about themselves. Here’s why you shouldn’t want to change those things.

Every little thing you see as a “flaw” is what makes you unique. It what makes you different from everyone else, and being different from everyone is good. Do you know how boring this world would be if we all looked the same? Pretty boring.

The media doesn’t make it easy. With photoshop and other editing software all we see is people who look flawless. But the real truth flawless doesn’t exist. Everyone has something that makes them unique.

We are at a time where people are embracing their flaws more and more. Less photoshop in photos, more inclusivity in advertisements. It is getting better, but it can still be scary embracing the things we were told to hide away for the longest time.

When you are having a hard time embracing your flaws remember, everyone has something that they don’t like about themselves, but can you see everything people don’t like about themselves? Probably not. Which means there’s a high chance people out there don’t even see your “flaws” as flaws. You’re your biggest critic.
