I have pretty high self confidence but lately I’ve been feeling insecure. I’m breaking out so much and I just feel like blegh. I know it took me a long time to get to the point where I like myself and feel comfortable in my body but even I’m susceptible to wanting to adhere to society’s beauty and “fitness” standards. I can be honest with myself (and others) when I admit that I felt victorious because I hadn’t eaten a proper meal since I got sick last Friday from food poisoning. I felt thinner and it made me feel good. And that now makes me so so mad. A friend helped me realize that I shouldn’t be feeling that way. I know it’s true but sometimes I need someone to remind me.
