I know it feels really bad whenever someone comments on your body, your face or your colour. It really does. But you don’t need to feel bad. Why does it have to be like that? You are a great person and that’s the only thing that matters.
If your parents are criticizing you and you feel bad, let them know. It’s okay, you are just communicating how you feel; you are not doing something you shouldn’t be doing. Some people go through shaming themselves and they want others to go through it too. Maybe, you can’t stop others commenting on your body when you don’t want them to. But you can most surely stop yourself from listening to them and becoming self-conscious. Don’t punish yourself, you have done nothing wrong. Don’t punish yourself for having a healthy, beautiful body and most importantly a beautiful heart.
Maybe you think you look ugly, fat or skinny but there is always someone who thinks that you are prepossessing. Don’t punish yourself; you will regret it as soon as you grow up. You will regret listening to some vacuous comments made by some very vacuous folks. You will regret not living your teenage years fully.
If we keep the stove on without any utensil on it and go near it, we may burn ourselves. Same goes for us; if we let ourselves burn with those comments we will hurt ourselves. So stay away from those comments. You need to turn off that stove this minute! Stay away from those vicious people who think you are good for nothing. If you start getting affected by those voices, then even the most alluring compliments will feel like mockery.
Love yourself for what you are and not for what you want to be. Be confident. Be yourself. Be the best.
