Being a woman in today’s society is hard, especially when there are so many unrealistic expectations and beauty standards. With the emergence of social media, looking all perfect and polished became almost mandatory, and everybody seems to have forgotten how a real human should look. First of all, confidence has nothing to do with our physical appearance. On the other hand, good looks are what gets you further in life these days, which sometimes isn’t fair. But is that really what defines you as a person? Beauty is only skin deep, and your mind and heart are more important than a pretty face. Here are a few reasons that might help you to open your eyes to essential things in life and be a woman who is proud to live in her own skin.

Here is How to Become a Woman Comfortable in Her Own Skin

Detox from social media and focus on yourself more

Don’t be fooled by what you see on other people’s social media profiles. Most of their lives are edited and fake. Never forget that people only share what they want you to see, and that’s how they present their best moments to the outside world. This whole Instagram obsession has to stop, since it’s one of the main reasons women feel depressed, and as if they are not good enough. The constant comparison is killing your self-esteem, and you will never be able to love yourself if you seek approval from others. So, focus on your dreams and goals, live the moment and try to put your phone away whenever you can. Life isn’t Instagram, so do you, and be more present and aware of the beautiful things around you.

Determine your body shape

Determine your body shapeJust because you aren’t a size 0, doesn’t mean you aren’t attractive. To be more comfortable in your own skin, it’s important to identify your figure first and dress accordingly. Take a look in the mirror and embrace what you see. We all have flaws and virtues. Learn to love your curves or your flat booty, because you are more than your looks. Think of a celebrity that has a similar body type, and buy some cute clothes that would make you feel sexy and comfortable. You don’t have to be skinny to rock boyfriend jeans or a bodycon dress. Every woman is beautiful in her own way, so wear what you like and don’t let anyone make you feel less than you are.

Let go of things or people that don’t complete you or make you happy

Let go of things or people that don’t complete you or make you happyYour family and your closest friends are what matters the most. Without their love and support, nothing would make sense. Learn how to get rid of the people that aren’t good for your mental health and who belittle your ambitions. Being mature and confident means that you aren’t afraid to speak your mind and ditch what doesn’t serve you anymore. Dismiss people you don’t want to be friends with anymore, and have no excuses.

No one is you and that is your power

Don’t be so harsh on yourself because nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes. Accept your uniqueness and celebrate your flaws. Practice more self-love, and be realistic about yourself. Think of the things that make you a good person, and identify your values. It’s important to be conscious about your worth, even though people often see us way better than we actually see ourselves.

Pamper yourself

Pamper yourselfBeing a people pleaser will get you nowhere, and people are bound to take advantage of it. Spoil yourself once in a while, take care of your body, have a massage, go to the spa center, have lunch by yourself and learn to enjoy your own company.

I truly hope you realize that true happiness and feeling positive in your own skin comes from within, and no one can rain on your parade if you don’t let them. So, find what accomplishes you and lets you grow, and you will never have doubts about your self-worth.

Your family and your closest friends are what matters the most. Without their love and support, nothing would make sense. Learn how to get rid of the people that aren’t good for your mental health and who belittle your ambitions. Being mature and confident means that you aren’t afraid to speak your mind and ditch what doesn’t serve you anymore. Dismiss people you don’t want to be friends with anymore, and have no excuses.
