Yes, guys we let people scan us and give their ‘expert comments’ on our flaws.It affects us because we are not comfortable in our skin, we let people tell us what do we need to do with our body,our mind,our heart!!

We are living in an era where outer image matters more than inner beauty.There are Bollywood actresses,fashion and Instagram models with perfect bodies,gorgeous hair and flawless skin ,however we are not aware that most of those pictures are probably highly Photo shopped and edited to be looked in a certain way.By looking at them we start forming unrealistic standards for beauty and body.

No body knows your journey and your achievements better than you.No one knows the story of that scar on body or why you are not able to loose even after a strict diet and rigorous gym routine.Your height and skin color is genetic and you never had an option to pick from.Body shaming is a dangerous disease,it leads to many serious consequences like stress,over eating,self hating, or even suicide.For someone with low self esteem, hearing how fat or skinny they are can trigger eating disorder like anorexia.So, how can we stop them doing this or let them impact us?

These are the few ways that helped me overcome my anxiety of being over-weight and short heighted.
MY BODY,MY HOME

What do we do when someone comes to your home and tells you that its not in order? We politely say its the best i have and simply ignore that conversation there onward.Your body is your home ,your soul has been living in this since ages.It has protected you from every storm , every emotion, every up and downs in your life and you have reached all milestones with this, in this.It is the best gift your parents together have given you.You cant let anybody disgrace it.Just tell yourself I AM BEAUTIFUL.

EMBRACE YOUR FLAWS

Nobody is perfect but with my flaws i am close to, because i am REAL.There is nothing wrong in trying to be your best or make the best out of your life with your expertise.To fulfill your dreams use your strengths.We get so busy cribbing about our flaws or imperfections that we completely forget out strength and talents.TRY TO BE UNIQUE,NOT PERFECT..

APPRECIATE YOUR BODY

Fall in love with your body , decorate it,work on it to make it look more beautiful not for others but for you to feel confident and positive.You already are beautiful, just have to acknowledge it and people will think twice before commenting on you.Celebrate your life and your achievements after all you only live once!! so make most of it.Let everybody know you are comfortable in your skin. Remember the line from Jab we met ‘I AM MY FAVORITE’…keep telling it to yourself.
