So sick and tired of seeing these fifteen year old tumblr girls trying to lose weight so they can look like Cara Delevigne or whatever. It will never, ever happen, because humans are made to be individuals, and being as skinny as a model will not make you happy. Wee girls need to accept what’s in the mirror, because what they see is natural and authentic and unique. Society tells us to look a certain way and they buy it, because in the age of tumblr where “thinspo” blogs tell them if they lose two stone they’ll look like a Victoria’s secret model, how can they not?
I realise I post pictures of various models, but usually its because I like the fashion or the way it looks on my blog or the models themselves. I’ll never look like Candice Swanepoel, but I’m okay with that. I find that being myself is satisfying enough and I’ve learnt, after some time, to accept myself, flaws and all, and love myself as I would like to be loved.
So please, if there are any girls who are insecure reading this, please take this advice and be proud of who you are and what you look like. There is no definitive definition of beauty, because it changes drastically throughout history. Accept yourself. Join a few clubs. Sponsor a baby seal. Because, while it sounds cheesy, at the end of your life nobody will remember the beauty of your face, but the beauty of your soul.
