So if you read my previous naked face blog then you probably can guess the basis of this blog..self image...
First I want to start off by saying I'm not this overly confident person who is on top of the world with being totally secure with myself because im not. In reality I don't think anyone in the world can be that self confident. Nobody is perfect. One of my neighbors in my dorm before I graduated college once said "Pilar you're the most confident person I've ever met" I felt flattered, yet taken aback because I was saying to myself wow "that's how you see me" but when I thought about it a few others have told me that too. I was also saying to myself "I have many insecurities too" However, I wasn't given myself enough credit for the wonderful things others saw in myself that I couldn't see. I guess thats one major reason why I chose psychology as my major in college because I truly want to help people. I've seen so many people struggle with the daily pressures of life and it takes them on a downward spiral. No one should ever have to feel that way...ever..I just feel a lot has to do with our individual self image and perception of ones self. Some people struggle harder with this than others and thats ok. There is no shame in that. I think the most difficult part is when society and media has something to say about it. I'm not going to be a hyprocrite here because I like makeup and fashion etc, but those are just "things" While they are nice to have, they are material items. Material items don't define who you are. Here's food for thought be the best you can be and love yourself, flaws and all :)
What do you think? I would like to know your views on self image etc.
