LABELS | A note to my 13 year old self
As a child, growing up I never couldn't understand how cruel the society can be. Being bullied as a child, I remember I started struggling with body image at the age of like 13. I used to skip the annual health check up in school because that meant you need to get on a scale and you know everyone is going to laugh at you. Having struggled with body image throughout my life, I have decided that all I want to do for the rest of my life is to make life easy for young girls like me who were bullied for being a size which is not the usual to embrace every inch of them with confidence.
Today I kick start a platform for positive content.
What is true body positivity? To love every inch of you. Your flaws and all your imperfections. Most of all to be healthy. To move, to dance, to eat right, to be bold, daring, stylish and to feel empowered. So here I am, sharing a message to be nothing but confident in your own skin through confidence, positive support and style.
The struggle to love yourself is an everyday story and let's speak about it openly because there is a teenager flipping through instagram trying to follow a trend. She cries her self to sleep. She skips meals and often googles how to loose 10kgs in 10days. She doesn't want to walk into her tuition class because last time she did, everyone laughed at her and asked everyone to back up because she was known as 'the lorry'. You don't want them to be victims of their own lives. Here's to more change in the way we conquer our bodies, our minds, our beautiful souls irrespective of our age, size, colour, background. Be yourself unapologetically. Everyday. And together, we can be the change.
