Opening up About Our Body Image Insecurities

Last Modified: July 30, 2022

The Parts of the Body Women Are Most Insecure About

How good do you feel about being naked? If you're like most people, chances are that there are a few parts of the body that you'd like to change.

Unfortunately, no matter what your size or shape, body insecurities can plague us all. The worst part? These feelings can keep you from enjoying the body you have.

Read on to learn more about how to love the body you've got and put body insecurities behind you.

Got Cellulite?

You probably remember the first time you saw it. Cellulite is an extremely common, though often unwelcome presence on the body.

It's estimated that 80-90% of women have cellulite. So if you've noticed it on your thighs or arms, you aren't alone.

While it can be easy to imagine that you're the only person with cellulite hiding beneath your jeans, it's time to get real. Even the celebrities touted as "the most beautiful people in the world" struggle with the appearance of cellulite.

While social media and airbrushed magazines may make it seem less common than it is, most women have some quantity of cellulite on their bodies.

Can't get past the way you feel about the jiggle? There are treatments available to minimize its appearance.

Stretch Marks

Got a few little lines on your hips, breasts, or thighs? You may be feeling a bit insecure.

Stretch marks are often an unavoidable side effect of natural body changes. Stretch marks may first appear in childhood or adolescence as the body grows. They can also show up later in life after weight gain or pregnancy.

While these marks can be diminished with treatments like micro-needling, they are also totally normal and natural for the body. Loving your stretch marks means loving your body for being resilient. After all, without your stretch marks, you wouldn't have the curves that make you "you".

Other Parts of the Body That You Can't Stand

If you didn't find your trouble spot listed, chances are that you've already identified parts of the body that you'd like to change. Bearing this in mind, you have only two choices.

Deciding to change the problem areas that plague you is one solution to creating greater levels of body confidence. Alternatively, if you can't change the parts you'd like to improve it's time to surrender.

Shame about body image insecurities won't change the parts that bug you. It's time to start loving the body you've got.

Even supermodels have body image issues and things they'd like to improve about themselves, so it's time to give up the body shame and start loving the skin your in.

Social media can make it hard to remember that flaws make us human. Airbrushed photos and underweight models often make women feel like there's something wrong with existing as they are.

Always remember that you are unique and that the flaws you perceive often served a greater purpose. Creating a unique and adept body that is capable of anything!
