Back To School PART 3 – Self Esteem

Standard

It’s not technically Wednesday, but it’s nighttime so it’s still Wednesday in my brain 🙂
_______________________________________

This is the last installment of my back to school series and let me just say that it’s been fantastic. Seriously. Today we’re going to talk about self esteem. Ahh this takes me back to when I first started. If you’ve been following my blog for a while now you know how I feel about body image and self esteem already. If you haven’t, shame on you. But since I’m a good person, I’ll break it down for you.

As kids while we’re growing up, we have this unreachable standard drilled into our heads. Girls and their super skinny Barbies and boys with their ultra buff G.I. Joes and superheroes. Because of this, by the time we’re all grown up, if we’re not living up to this standard we feel like crap. It sucks. Now, I’m about to say something hella cheesy so brace yourself.

You don’t have to be perfect. You’re great just the way you are.

This has taken me a really long time to accept and I still struggle with it everyday. I just take it one step at a time, and so should you.

So when you walk into school on the first day, just remember that there’s no one like you and that’s a good thing because if there was there’d probably be an overload of fabulousness.

Thanks for listening,
