How To Feel Comfortable In Your Own Skin

We all have those days where we analyze and stress over every little imperfection and flaw we find within us, or compare ourselves to others who we feel are somehow better. If we think this way for too long, it starts to become a repeating pattern of thought- and it’s one that can be really hard to break. The more I work on my confidence the more I realize how much harder it is to call myself beautiful than it is to emphasize the countless flaws I can find in myself- and that’s not the way things should be. If you’re feeling insecure or low, just try your best to remember:

You are unique and unlike anyone else– this is a good thing. Rather than trying to fit the mold and change the things about you which make you different, embrace them! Your quirks and unique attributes are what make you who you are.

Everyone has flaws– although you may not see them, everyone has a flaw or two (or more) that they wish they could change about themselves. Remember this when you feel anything less than perfect for you are not the only one who feels this way!

Positive thoughts can change your life– it sounds cheesy, I know, but they truly can transform the way you live your life and see things. Always try to be positive about yourself, even if you have to force yourself to in the beginning. It may seem silly now, but the more often you do this the more it will become second nature to you to think positively about yourself.

It’s okay to feel down sometimes– you can’t always be positive and feel great about yourself, so it’s perfectly okay to give yourself some time to feel upset or down. Just remember that eventually, you have to pick yourself back up and remind yourself that life goes on, and that the negativity you feel is a passing emotion- your happiness is a choice!

Avoid comparing yourself to others– this is one of the hardest things to remember.  Have you ever compared yourself to someone and actually ended up feeling better than before? Probably not. You are too unique to be compared to anyone else and will only overshadow your own lovely character with doubt and criticism by comparing yourself to others. You deserve to feel confident in your skin!

I hope these tips were helpful to those of you who might need a bit of a pick me up to feel confident in your own skin again. What do you say to yourself or do to feel beautiful and confident? Let me know I would love to hear your ideas! xo

    This is a great post. It’s only recently I’ve started feeling comfortable, and even confident in my own skin. What I always think is make the most of the body you’ve been given and play up the parts of you that you love!

      I’m happy you enjoyed it Erin! That’s a lovely thought to have, I too try to think that way when I’m not feeling the best in my own skin- it works really well! xo

  • Your blog is beautiful! I’ve had a period before when I was super insecure with myself. I used to cry myself to sleep and tried so hard to fit in with everybody else. But then after awhile, I realized that I needed to accept myself instead of getting everybody’s acceptance.
