Style | Confidence

Hi!,

I'd always envied anyone that was confident, not just in themselves but in general, whether it was their ability to talk to anyone anywhere, or in what they were, I would always wish that I could be like that.

Growing up I was shy, not just a little bit but, extremely shy. I rarely spoke to anyone else outside of my little circle of family and a few friends, the thought of going anywhere alone made me feel physically sick. Mr C commented recently about how confident I looked in some photos that we had taken, in the 11 years we've been together he said that he'd noticed a huge improvement in not only how I am around other people but my body confidence especially.


I said to him that he was right but, also (slightly) wrong. There are some days when I feel good, really good like in these pictures below. But with the good there is also the bad. I still have a lot of days when I dislike my body, not all of it but certain areas, some days I think my bum is too big, my thighs are horrendous, my legs look awful - but these days are now thankfully few and far between. I remember the days when I used to cry at myself in the mirror and would literally starve myself, I was always certain that if I lost weight it would make me more attractive, life would be better and I would always be happy. How wrong I was!



I've given up dieting, it doesn't mean that I don't care about my body but it means that my desire to be thinner has subsided and the need to love my body has finally taken over.
