Insecurities will always be looming at your side. When will you begin dealing with your past hurts, rejections, and, the hidden feelings of insecurity? You never really realize the affects societal views have on your life until you decide to step outside of the norm and discover who you really are. Through Pop Culture’s influence we, both men and women, tend to be swayed into believing a false descriptive definition of what confidence and the beauty is. We start thinking that beauty is accepting Kylie Jenner’s lip plumping challenge! We begin flying out to Miami, Fl to get butt injections because having more curves is what we’re missing! 

Does This Make You Feel Prettier

Does having a curvier figure make you feel any prettier? The fact of the matter is, you may get more catcalls as you walk down the street, but is that the acknowledgement for which you’re searching? If you enjoy that sort of attention, then go for it! However, when you’ve figured out his intention, please, please, please, don’t be suprised by his actions! Most importantly, by upgrading your outside you may think that everything is perfect. Now, that’s where you’re wrong. In fact, everything is far from fine because you still haven’t accepted yourself.

Once the excitement fades, then you’re back to square one. I say all this to say, we need to begin strengthening our foundation and dealing with our insecurities head-on.

Where Do I Even Begin

By shutting down all negative influences of our world’s views, we can finally see a “Bigger Picture.” A life of value. A life filled with love and happiness. A life where we shine with confidence, not drowning in our insecurities. I can’t tell you enough how important it is to write down all your positive and negative qualities on paper.

Trust me, it is far harder than it seems.

In fact, most people don’t even know how to answer questions about themselves. If it takes you more than a few moments to write down your qualities, then it is time to get to know yourself.

Getting to know ourselves 

Through our journey of being uninfluenced, we begin to find our true authentic self—our likes and our dislikes. We discover a self that no chunky high heels or full coverage makeup could ever conceal. Not only that, we realize our minor issues and heal from them through people.

Do you want to live, learn, and grow with confidence? Well, I think withdrawing from pop culture for a few weeks does a body good. In that time of solitude, we are forced to get to know ourselves. We are forced to deal with the things that we, many times, sweep under the rug, hoping we never have to deal with that hurt and pain again.

Stop Caring About What Others Think 

Most importantly, we begin to care less about what others think because we took the time to know who we are. We begin to strut down New York’s 5th Ave with a glow that radiates brighter than any diamond ring. Nobody can ever take that away from you!

Lastly, we learn that our $1,999.00 grey trench coat paired with our limited edition red-bottoms and our BEATFACE will never replace the woman who knows who she is and loves herself from deep within first.

What is unique about you? Do you know that many women hate their fiery red hair, voluptuous hair, and freckled face as a child? Everything changes as an adult; these same women love their unique characteristics that they hated as a child.
