When you look in the mirror, do you find yourself immediately zeroing in on the areas of your body you like least? Here are just a few reasons why this is a waste of your time.
You’ll Wish You Had Today’s Body Ten Years From Now
As insecure as you might feel about your body today, grab a photo of yourself 10 years ago. Odds are, you will find yourself wishing you had that body today. Maybe even the body you had 2 or 3 years ago. Point being, most of us will at some point look back at the flaws we see today—with envy. Instead of loving today’s body in 10 years, love it now!
The Right Partner Won’t Care
Most of us fret about our bodies because we want to be attractive to our partner or spouse, or our future partner or spouse. While there is certainly something to be said for dressing and grooming to look and feel your best, the right partner won’t care about your stretch marks, love handles, dimples, fine lines, wrinkles, or the few pounds you could stand to shed. If they do, they aren’t the right partner for you.
It Doesn’t Matter
Your character, your compassion, and how you engage and connect with others—that is what matters most. It’s easy to get caught up in the superficial, and the media-defined images of beauty. While we all appreciate beauty, what really makes a person unique is what is on the inside.
We have all met at least one person who is a heart throb, but who also has a horrid personality that turns them from head turning—to downright unappealing. It’s time to be kind to yourself, and to love your body just the way it is.
