“If you don’t love your imperfections, someone else will”
Okay – enter the cringiest thing I’ve ever quoted, but it’s true.
After writing my post about how I photoshop my spots in photos sometimes (p*ss off acne) I feel like I’ve been persuaded to feel good in my own skin a bit more. We all have imperfections, and when I say imperfections I mean things we don’t necessarily like about ourselves – but when I got out my new bright orange skirt and thought how unique and ‘out-there’ it was, it made me think that we’re all different and we should all embrace our differences.
Did you know I have a mole on my leg which I always used to photoshop? I always wanted to get rid of it as a kid and now I just let it be part of who I am.
Did you know I’ve got a giant gap between my top middle teeth? I’ve literally got ‘the London look’ 24/7 and I can’t stand it, but at the end of the day it’s just a little quirk I have.
Did you know I’ve got little lumps on the outsides of both of my feet? I got them a few years ago after wearing shitty shoes, and now I’ve got permanent lumps on them – me and my boyf joke that I have 6 toes on each foot (#bants). For years I covered them up because I was embarrassed but now WHO CARES.
Did you know I sneeze like a cat, I hiccup all the time and I’m addicted to Vimto?
You probably didn’t know any of that, but now you know I’m just a regular human with weird quirks and imperfections. I may not like some of them (the 6 toes pisses me off majorly) but at no point has anyone ever pointed them out to me (except for a twat in Oxford once who laughed at my extra toes, you little sh*t).
We’re all different and we all have things we want to change about ourselves. If you want, go and change them, everything in your life is up to you, but be happy in your own skin because it’s the only one you’ve got!
