Self-Esteem and body image

Hello guys! I really hope you're having a great time. On today's post we'll be discussing one of the real problems that teenagers face on a daily basis which has a great impact on their personality and life in general.
So let's be honest here. How many times did you spend hours wishing you weren't too tall, too short, too skinny, your hair was not too curly or straight? How many times in your life did you wish you were someone else?
It's a fact that teenagers have to cope up with different issues during the most awkward years of their lives and sometimes they let those issues affect their personality and character. They try to compare themselves with different celebrities or even try to look exactly like them. I mean how is this even possible?
You are amazing and perfect just the way you are. But simply teens cannot realize this. They try to look like their idols, dress like them or even act like them. It is sad. They deal with issues such as hormonal changes that affect their mood and appearance. Some teenagers have to cope up with body changes and this really has an impact on them. Sometimes they experience negative comments about their appearances and that alone can make them feel depressed. Comparing themselves with people seen in magazines and on TV simply makes it more difficult. As a result they feel bad about themselves, they think people don't like them and are lonely. Their self esteem is quite low and some of them often grow to hate themselves. This is so wrong guys. I understand that teenage years are probably the weirdest years in our lives but they are the best as well. Why not enjoy them? Why not accept who we really are? We are beautiful, each one of us in our own way. We are not the same but none of us is ugly. We are imperfect but our imperfections make us perfect. Everyone should believe that because it is the truth guys. Spread it to the world! So if you go to school tomorrow and see someone sitting alone, being sad and isolated from the others, go talk to them, learn their name. What if that person struggles with low self esteem? Tell them they're beautiful, because they are, just like everyone else.

A playlist for when you need a pick me up

Hello everyone!Today I'm going to be sharing with you 10 of my go-to songs for when I need a little bit of a confidence/happiness boost.I hope you enjoy!

Confidence and social media

Let's talk social media.But in a more real,hey-im-a-17-year-old-on-instagram-way.
I think social media is a beautiful thing,honestly.But with that being said there is definitely a part of social media that is kind of weird.

Imagine going to this room that's filled with photos of a person's life.But the only thing is,this person can take any of the photos they don't want you to see and hide them.
But is the life that's being potrayed to you the truth?No,but the thing is you don't know that.

Same thing goes for social media too(especially instagram-let's be honest).
It'is really easy to post a happy happy pic and caption it with a motivational quote or something like that,but what is really going on behind the photo may be completely different.

The truth is though,no one is going to post a selfie of instagram when they are sad or when they are not looking their best.And we all do that,even if we aren't realising it.

So,what I'm trying to say is don't take what you see on instagram or social media in general to heart.
It really messes with your confidence when you start idolizing or comparing yourself to something that is possibly staged.
Same thing goes with youtube too.Watching a ten minute video of someone talking or doing DIYs or whatever doesn't mean that you know what their whole day was like.There are people that like being more real than others but still everyone likes to portray themselves as put together as possible-that's human nature.So,it is kind of stupid to start feeling crappy about yourself after you've just watched a 10 minute video of your favourite youtuber.It doesn't make sense to feel bad because your lunch never looks as instagram worthy as theirs or because they are hair goals and your hair is a knotted frizzy mess(me,that's me).

Okay,I guess that was my little ramble of the day.Social media is a beautiful thing but you got to be a little cautious with comparing yo'self to others.
