We females are never made to feel comfortable and confident in our bodies. For society, something or the other is always wrong with us. The way we sit, stand, how our bodies look, how our face looks, the way we speak, dress and everything with our bodies is wrong. Society wants us to be “perfect” — the “perfect” which does not exist.
Yesterday I was looking at the pictures of models on social media. You would never know how bad I felt thinking of my body. I would like to appreciate those models for looking so pretty. But I felt bad about myself, how my body was not similar to their bodies, how I do not have a round butt, big breasts, a “perfect” figure.
So let me tell you that there is nothing as perfect. I did feel bad about my body, but I knew I needed to be proud of it. I have been told, “you do have small breasts, but you look beautiful”. There is no fucking “but”. I have small breasts and I am beautiful. Every human is beautiful. You are just contributing to the fake beauty standard society has set if you bring up “but” when praising someone.
I still feel bad about my body. I have always felt it because I have always been questioned when I have worn something short or something which was helping me flaunt my body.
I have always been questioned when I have sat with my legs spread. I have always been questioned when I was raising my voice. I have been questioned every moment when I was feeling confident with myself. There have been times when I have hated my body, myself, but I have come through those times, and I will now too.
