The Summer Self Love Struggle

Oh it’s that time of the year when I end up feeling so self conscious, and not only that I feel like I am 100% not good enough! I know that sounds totally bad, however, the other day when I was out, I was in a shop and someone made a comment about my arms. I lift weights regularly, I workout and I’m pretty healthy, but someone said I basically had Michelin arms. I’m a big fan of the Michelin man, he is adorable, however when it is used in a derogatory term it’s not pleasant.

I’m usually the first person to be as confident as possible but when someone puts you down it honestly makes you feel absolutely awful. The thing is with summer, the layers get less and less and people constantly have an opinion on how you look.

I’ve always tried to be as positive as possible when it comes to my body, however when it comes to someone trying to bring me down it always changes everything.

In summer we should always be able to wear what we want, do what we want, and so what if we have a bobbly tummy, or we have lumps and bumps, we are all beautiful inside and out. 

I think people believe that just because people are out and about they have the right to make a comment on what someone is wearing.

I’d like to point out that you don’t. You don’t have the right to comment on the way someone looks. You do not have the right to comment on the way someone looks.

If you’re going to be rude, or awful remember to zip it.

It’s hot, we all sweat, the last thing I want to be wearing is jeans and a jumper and covering up. We want to be cool and not boil in this heat.

As someone who really struggles with the heat I will not cover up in a jumper just because someone thinks it is their right to make an awful comment on my body.

I am comfortable being me, I have worked so hard to get my body to this size, I will not have someone’s comment bring me down.

Have you had someone make an awful comment to you? Or give you a nasty look? Don’t let them get to you, you’re beautiful inside and out, don’t ever let anyone ever bring you down.

    It is so hard, since my surgeries I have struggled alot to feel confident. From my weight to my scars I have lost alot of confidence. We should all uplift each other as much as we can.

      I totally agree my lovely, it’s all about building each other up rather than tearing people down! You’re gorgeous lovely! xxx

    This is so true I am sure a lot of people struggle with this confidence and feel self conscious like all the time and the unkind comments don’t help either in fact the can make it worse. No one is perfect, we all have something we want to change about ourselves and I am sure the people the are saying these unkind things would not like it done to them. Why can’t we just say something nice or nothing at all? Why not support each other, it will make a big difference.

      Supporting each other is so important, and I feel like sometimes people don’t realise the importance of being there for others and making them feel better about everything! xxxx
