The human race is like many types of licorice; you never know what you’ll receive. There are as many different types of personalities as there are people, and they come in all forms and sizes. As a result, you must embrace who you are while also changing what you can alter.
You may have no control over your appearance, but you do have control over what you eat. You may not have any control over the skills you’ve been given, but you do have power over what you do with them.
People, particularly young ladies, are subjected to unrealistic expectations in today’s environment. They are intended to have the same glamorous appearance as those in glossy women’s magazines. Is it any surprise that many women have low self-esteem?
Many women expect men to have the perfect physical body, even if they believe they are under too much pressure to seem as glamorous as a Hollywood celebrity.
When there is so much pressure on women to have a great shape, I can understand why their self-esteem is tied to their weight, but what they are really doing is living to please others rather than enjoying who they are.
It’s best to embrace yourself for who you are rather than allowing your body form to define your self-worth.
You shouldn’t let other people’s opinions define your self-worth either. If people can’t accept you for who you are, that’s their issue, not yours.
The bottom line is that you can only live your life according to your own circumstances and not compare yourself to others because comparing apples to pears is impossible.
What others say about you has no bearing on your worth. It has nothing to do with your dress size or your accomplishments. You may see high-profile athletes’ accomplishments hailed on television, but this, too, will pass. Thousands of unsung heroes go unnoticed by society, but they go about their business day after day without complaint or even a small round of praise.
Instead of focusing on “weight loss,” I recommend focusing on “healthy eating.”
Losing weight is significantly more difficult than achieving a goal based on what you eat and how much you eat.
Losing weight, like anything worthwhile in life, involves effort and sacrifice, and only you can judge whether the effort and sacrifice were worthwhile.
