Ever since my body started to change and grow hair I felt uncomfortable about it.
I remember being about 10-11 years old and being embarrassed about the hair on my arms and legs because I felt it was much darker and noticeable compared to everyone else my age, even boys. So I would try to pluck it and shave it in secret.
I remember wishing I could just laser it off forever because it felt so ugly and unnatural.
As I grew up this feeling just became more of a norm and I would regularly fight what my natural body was trying to be in order to appear perfect and flawless.
I used to want to flaunt my smooth legs and underarms but now I want to flaunt my body as it is. Now I choose to embrace myself as I am and no longer wish to change that which is natural just because it may not look good to others, because I actually love the way it looks now.
I didn’t always feel this way and it’s been quite a journey to get to this point of acceptance towards myself and I still have a long way to go but I’m getting there.
I really hope this helps anyone who is struggling with accepting any part of their natural body and I hope it encourages you to embrace yourself a little bit more ✨🙏🏼 #bodyhair#loveyourbody#selflovemovement
