Are you for real?

Let me start by saying, being a woman isn’t easy

Not to say being a guy isn’t either (but I can’t speak for a guy- for obvious reasons)

LOL

Women are held to such high standards, not counting the standards we have for ourselves

(which are EXTREMELY high)

In today’s “social media generation”, we are no longer even looking at reality

We look at filters, photo-shop, and many other apps that make people look “different” than they are

And we think to ourselves, WHAT THE F?!

“Why is my skin not like a baby’s butt?”

“Why does my butt not look like Kim K’s?

“Why are my lips not like…?”

“Look, this girl is drinking that skinny tea detox and her stomach is so flat!”

hahaha!

It sounds silly, doesn’t it?

I think we all need to take a step back and realize that we are living in a time where anyone can be whoever they want

(whoever they want ONLINE, that is)

Anyone can fake anything they want on social media

HECK- if I wanted Kim K’s butt, there’s an app for that!

It would take me 2 seconds to do it- and upload it on my instagram page

If you don’t know me, you wouldn’t know!

Right?!

Don’t get caught up on “FAKE MEDIA”

Believe ONLY what you see with your OWN eyes.

With that being said, I wanted to start a trend

(Or maybe I’ll be the only person posting this- which is also fine)

🙂

Because if you want to see change, you must start with yourself.

This is me, without any make-up on

I have flaws just like any other human being

I don’t like every part of my body just like any human being

I struggle to feel comfortable with myself sometimes

But at the end of the day, I love the person that I am

I love my flaws, my imperfections

Because all of those things make me who I am.

OWN YOUR IMPERFECTIONS.

me

I wish more people would be up-front about their lives

Specially, those exposing their lives to social media like I am.

So many people feel the need to live up to them and think that’s how they should look

Women feel pressured enough without any help

How about we promote a sense of POWER to one another?

How about we UP-LIFT one another?

How about we stop COMPETING and start EMPOWERING one another?

Women should empower women.

Not the other way around.

We are all beautiful in our own unique way.

Embrace the YOU that only YOU can offer

And most importantly, before worrying about how you look on the outside

Work on how you are on the INSIDE

Because BEAUTY truly comes from within
