There are a whole lot of things I don’t like about myself, both physically and mentally. There are things that I can change, like the fat in places I don’t want there to be fat. There are also things that I can’t change unless go under the knife, like my nose.
I have a bump on my nose, and to be honest, I didn’t feel self-conscious about it til I was in High School. One of my friends at the time pointed out to me and since that day I’ve felt insecure about my nose.
It’s so difficult not to feel bad when in the magazines, tabloids and on social media there are pictures of the perfect girl. She has either a pinched nose or a straight perfect one. You never see models have bumps on their nose. You never see anyone who’s Instagram famous or on YouTube with these types of imperfection.
After I graduated high school, I went through the constant struggle of figuring out whether I wanted to get cosmetic surgery or not. I’m 23 now, and still haven’t decided what to do with my nose. For the most part, I try to embrace it as something I was born with, and maybe helping other people to have the confidence to embrace their natural selves. I know some people actually have serious issues with their nose, and I should be blessed with the nose I was given. I can breathe perfectly fine, which is super important.
I don’t know what I’m going to do in the future, but I do know that whatever I do won’t be because of the internet anymore. I am actually pretty happy with the way I look now, and I know that I am not going to feel that way every single day, but for now I’m making the changes I know I can change such as changing my lifestyle and eating habits, so I can get the body I truly want.
I am also making changes mentally, so I can be an even happier and grateful individual. At the end of the day, these are the things that mark true happiness.
I don’t know if this spoke to any of you guys, but if it did, please leave me a comment down below!
