Have you ever been sitting around with a bunch of girls and the conversation inevitably turns to a rants session bashing on our bodies and looks? Sure you have, because this is such a common scenario these days. One girl will start with, "Oh my gosh, I'm so fat!" Then another one will chime in with, "Me too! I need to work out." And yet another girl will say something about her need to exercise and how she wishes she were prettier. These conversations are ridiculous and are awful for our self-esteems. Some people say that there is tremendous pressure on young girls from magazines, television shows and advertisements, which I think is true, but I also think that a person's harshest critic is herself. I think this is true even if we aren't just talking about looks. When it comes to school and activities or sports, we tend to focus on the things we could have done better at than what our actual achievements are.
Complaining about our flaws isn't going to do anything for us. If we really wanted to change ourselves to feel better then we can. Go work out or put make-up on oh take a few minutes to vent and let it all out if it helps you feel better, but don't sit there and degrade yourself and wallow in self-pity. Everyone should be happy and do what it takes to make themselves feel good each day.
This video has been making its way around the web for a while now, and though it's quite funny how blunt and honest he is, his message is very valid and true. I think everyone should take a look at it and could take a bit of advice from him.
