Just like every girl, I get very self-conscious with my appearance sometimes. With all the media filled with perfect-looking models and actresses, it’s easy to think “if only I have her legs” or “her eyes are gorgeous!”. Particularly now that I work in a ‘fashion’ company (‘fashion’ is in quotes since what I do has nothing to do with fashion), the girls at my office are always so put-together, with the perfect hair, wardrobe and shoes, and it doesn’t help once in a while I bump into a model!
But when I catch myself having thoughts like ‘I wish I could look like her’, I tell myself to stop. It sounds so cliche since I feel you hear about this everywhere, but it’s helpful to go through a list of things that make you great and unique, and then you’ll start feeling awesome. And guess what, your confidence will shine, and people around you will notice.
