My experience with Self Confidence
So following from yesterday, this whole change happened BEFORE I was even on social media. I had a Facebook account that I barely used properly and I was not on Instagram/Snapchat etc. So it’s not like i started by experiencing seeing other girls on social media, wishing I looked like them.
It also meant I didn’t my take that many photos of myself so things like good angles and lighting weren’t in my mind. My thoughts about myself were mostly from what I would see in the mirror.
Obviously when I changed my lifestyle and I started liking my image more, I felt better. And eventually when I did get on Instagram things like photos did become more relevant to how I saw myself - not that it should. But later, even though I did feel better and loved how much happier I felt about my looks, I did go through that “this is an unflattering photo” stage. I would delete photos and get a little upset and wish I always had good angles.
I had a small bit of “how come I can’t look this good in every photo”. And it might seem weird but the truth is that exercise and yoga did make me feel better about my body even in “bad photos”. You have rolls and folds and unflattering angles but it doesn’t change that I’m doing good things for myself and my body is strong and capable of doing so much more than I thought it could!
It still happens and it always will but I’m happy that now i laugh about “bad” photos because thankfully I’ve realised that some unflattering photos don’t mean I’m ugly or unattractive. It’s just a human body.
I wish I had an answer for everyone because this is only my experience and my thoughts, and not everyone would have the same feelings about themselves. But I would always recommend trying to be active and doing things you enjoy that positively impact your health, because that changed my life more than I can explain.
I’m going to talk about whatever I can, the best i can, over the next few days. And I’ll answer any other DM’s i get but keep in mind this is only my experience and we all experience life differently 😊🙏🏾
