As you can see, I've outgrown that insecurity. I now proudly show off my arms, sag, flab and all. I think because I don't bring unnecessary attention to them, people don't mind them too. It's so liberating to finally be able to wear what I want to wear without feeling so conscious anymore. I said it last time, people treat you the way you treat yourself and at the extent that you allow, so don't let people overstep their boundaries and keep you from feeling good about yourself.
Growing up in this day and age, we are provided with a very rigid set of beauty standards that 99% of us will never reach, making us feel like we are not and never will be good enough. But it's all bull. Our body structures aren't built the same. Our skin color differs, even from our parents or our siblings who we share the same genetic code with. What makes us different shouldn't be made fun of, or laughed at, but celebrated. Every person is made unique, with features and parts that were intended by nature to form a perfectly imperfect human being.
Besides, life would be so boring if we can all fit into a mold, right?
