My Rollercoaster of Body Confidence

I've been putting a post like this off due to it being a sensitive subject and it being different for everyone however I'd like to voice my opinion/ experience on the matter. I promise I'll do a more relaxed post soon but I've been in the mood to talk about things that matter a lot to me. 

I took the picture above today, I was really happy with how my body looked in it. However it took me a while to get a photo of my outfit where I was happy with the look of myself. I've always had this ideal in my brain that I'll never look fashionable or stylish as long as I'm not slim, I think I got this from how I've seen fashion throughout growing up. There wasn't really ever girls who were famous for being big and badass, there's always been the images of only thin tall women in MY head who stand out in fashion. Luckily that's changed over the past couple of years, now I look at all the people in the world rocking their beautiful bodies no matter whatever others opinions are. But my head was wired in the way of to look good I had to loose weight. It got to the point where I didn't want to buy clothes because I wanted to loose weight first so I would look good in them. And that's the biggest load of baloney ever, you DO NOT need to be a certain way to slay. You, no matter whatever you look like can rock an outfit of your choice with the up most confidence. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with wanting to loose weight to want to be more confident, I'm doing it myself. The point I'm getting across is that you don't have to loose weight or even gain it to think better of yourself. 

It's hard to speak about a topic like this and not feel like your offending someone, if I am. Sorry I'm really not meaning to. 

When I was 13 and I started becoming a 'woman' shall we say, I hated it. I used to hide myself in baggy clothes and hoodies, it was like torture I thought having women's features was embarrassing and inappropriate. Don't ask why, maybe its just part of growing up but it seriously freaked me out. Now, only recently must I add, I've become very into more tight clothes that show my body off and I've become proud of my female body, It all comes with confidence I guess. Yet I still cant help feeling uncomfortable when a little bit of my stomach is showing, something some girls would do without a second thought. I think it's a slow process of coming more and more out of your comfort zone. 

This post has been a little everywhere but I just want to let all them girls out there know that you be whoever you want, as long as you're happy and comfortable that's all that matters. 

Thanks, Em x
