Hey everyone! I'm finally back on WeHeartIt and it's a snow day here in NYC so you already know I'm going to write an article.

Something that I've been wanting to talk about for a while now is being insecure. For some time I really struggled with trying to love myself. I even deleted a lot of my social media so I wouldn't compare myself to other people. I was so fixed on checking instagram to see what celebrities looked like and did which made me extremely insecure. I wanted to have a flat stomach, long hair, a perfect smile, pretty much everything that a girl should "aspire" to look like.

After I deleted everything, I really tried to focus on myself. When I gave it some time, I realized that comparing myself was extremely unhealthy and there was honestly no point in doing it whatsoever. I also learned that there is so much beauty out in the world that there's no need to aspire to look like one type of person. We all don't have to have the same stick thin body type or hair or perfect makeup look.

Also we all have things that we're insecure about but at the end of the day, you kind of have to learn how to let it go because it may be important to you but no one you meet is going to even think about what you consider a "flaw." We've all had acne, hated what our bodies looked like and changed our hair at many points in our life, even now. But why don't we ever look at the positive? When we look in the mirror why don't we see what we love about ourselves or compliment ourselves once in a while. I think that's something everyone deserves. To feel happy and comfortable in their own skin. Just a small challenge for some of you who read this, next time you look in the mirror, instead of pointing out that "ugly" scar you have or putting yourself down for being "fat," point out something that you love about yourself and it can be about your personality or how you look today. I think this is something that we all forget how to do sometimes and it's time that we all have some confidence for a change!
