When I was growing up, it wasn’t about the types of clothes we wore, it was about how skinny and how flat your stomach was.
When I think back, it is something that actually sill grates me now.
What we experience shape who we are as people.
The lifestyle above taught me:
- Eat less and do tonnes of cardio
- Physical health over mental health
- You need to look a certain way to fit in.
In reality this isn’t the truth. You don’t need to look or be a certain way.
Confidence isn’t just about your body. It is also about wearing clothes you feel comfortable in, prioritising self-care and eating foods that make you feel good. It isn’t about following trends at the cost of your mental health.
