The internet has opened up a whole new world where we are inundated with photo after photo of girls who proclaim to be ‘normal’ girls, but look like they could have stepped out of a magazine. You end up with a distorted view of what it means to have a normal body. Does your stomach bulge when you sit down? Do you get a double chin? Do you think you have tuck shop arms? What about jiggly thighs? Crazy I know, but, that's normal. However, you could be forgiven for thinking that you are in the minority. That most girls are fit, toned, glowing specimens that radiate confidence because they have it going on. But that’s not reality. So many of us sit here in front of our computer or on our phone, browsing fitness accounts while slothing around on the couch, checking out ‘healthy’ instas while eating chocolate icecream, looking at fashion blogs and wondering how the hell these girls afford so many clothes when you’re living off noodles this week. That is the majority of us. The sloths, gorging ourselves on delicious icecream. So next time you find yourself spiralling downwards into a pit of envy and self-loathing, remember that this 'perfect' girl that you are putting on a pedestal probably has all the same insecurities that you have and only puts her best photos up online (just as you do). And that while you are laying around your house, unshowered, eating pizza and looking at these accounts with the ‘perfect girls’ remember that they are probably doing exactly the same thing. There’s no normal. Just girls and a society that tells them to hate themselves… oh, but it’s okay – you can fix it. Well stuff ‘fixing’ yourself. You’re great. Remind yourself. Write it on a post-it and stick it to your mirror. Click out of accounts that make you feel crap. Dance to your favourite song in the lounge room. Feel those thighs jiggle and own it. You got moves, and they're fantastic. 💃 Thanks to @baruch_gabsu for sharing this ridiculsouly amazing shot of @keksschoki with LGG!
