15 Photos That Prove Loving Yourself Is the Key to Happiness

year ago

Stereotypes about beauty can ruin anyone’s life. An imperfect nose or body shape, being too short or too tall, or having freckles or curly hair often leads to insecurities. Some people try to hide their “flaws” under layers of beauty products, others try plastic surgery, and some finally realize that their appearance is what makes them unique. We believe that everyone deserves to be happy, no matter how much they weigh or how big a nose they have.

“Wanted to share a little look book from my first vacation in 2 years! Never did I ever think I’d actually feel stylish.”

“Always thought no one could love me because of my nose...at 19 I’m growing out of that mindset.”

“I’ve always been self-conscious about my gap after growing up and being around people with near perfect teeth.”

“But when I’m around him, it’s easy to forget and let my true smile shine!”

“It took such a long time, but I’m finally loving my curls!!”

“I used to think that a tall girl would never want to date a guy shorter than her. But we’ve been together for 3.5 years.”

“And I love it when she’s wearing heels.”

“I let myself listen to people’s comments about my nose and that I should get a nose job, for which I actually started saving.”

“I’m happy to say that I love my nose more than ever. Everyone on my dad’s side has this nose, and I’m proud to have this prominent feature.”

“I’ve always been very self-conscious about my 45-size (12 in the US) feet, and today I finally embraced them and bought some Birkenstocks!”

“I was always afraid that big, round glasses would emphasize my round face, but whatever, I love them!”

“I feel like all gingers have struggled with hating their freckles growing up. I’ve learned to appreciate mine so much more now!”

“I spent last year deciding my body was no longer ’bad.’”

“I’m spending this year embracing it and learning to love and be thankful for it... And to realize that literally no one cares what I wear.”

“Am I the only person who actually is happy they have vitiligo?”

“I’ve been wearing less and less makeup as the years go on, to the point where I usually only wear makeup if I’m going out on the weekends.”

“And wow, it is liberating.”

“Never let anyone tell you that you can’t wear heels because of your height! 6’3” and loving it."

“Other people: ’You can’t be curvy without magnificent form!’ Me: ’Watch me.’”

“After years of struggling with hair loss (total hair loss about 8 years ago), and the gambit of wigs and treatments that goes with it, this is who I am.”

“I married my man in September and didn’t think twice about my hairstyle!”
