Do you feel uncomfortable or lose your confidence because of your skin colour?? If you do, then don’t – like you many people don’t feel comfortable in their own skins. But this should stop from today.
From I was in school I found that girls having dusky or dark complexion have insecurities and lose confidence with their skin colour. Even in the present time some of my friends who have dark complexion feel bad about their looks. They are trying many fairness products or DIY methods to lighten up their skin colour. They do not realize that what they are really looking for a way to be themselves and feel good about them.
I also focused on my looks throughout my school and college. I was conscious about sun tans which made my complexion dull or acne scars on my face. So, I used to scrutinize myself in the mirror and search the ways to look better.
I became too self-conscious and dependent on how others perceived me. If someone complimented me, I would feel confident, but if not I would return to the mirror in an effort to figure out the reason.
One day I realized my looks were not the problem—they never were. I understood that what I did not like about my face had nothing to do with my physical features. It was something else, something within me that was reflecting out and causing me to feel unattractive and lose my confidence.
These are the reasons why I had decided to write about this topic in my very first blog.
Still you feel uncomfortable? Here are some recommendations how you can feel comfortable with your own skin-
- Love yourself:–
Just love yourself and think you are beautiful. Remember that the first step to feeling beautiful is really thinking that you are beautiful, just as you are. If other people agree, then great, but if not don’t be upset as at the end, it really makes no difference. Remember nobody is perfect in this world. You are perfect in your own imperfections. Be comfortable with the way you look, smell, sound, act, and react to situations. Give yourself some “me time” to learn to love the person you are and do the things that you want to do.
- Compliment yourself:-
You often feel great about yourself when someone tells you that you look amazing, or when a friend compliments an aspect of your personality. But compliments will come and compliments will go. At the end of the day, your self-worth should not depend on what other people say about you, whether it is good or bad. You should accept compliments from others graciously and genuinely believe them, but you should also get used to complimenting yourself. Find your authenticity; find yourself. This will help you feel your beauty. When you find who you are as well as be true to yourself, you will automatically feel attractive and beautiful.
- Think positively:
We always find that some people are just naturally more positive than others. You can also become more positive like them. If you want to feel comfortable in your own skin, then you have to start thinking about the best thing that can happen to you instead of always expecting the worst. Any time you catch yourself thinking negatively, make an effort to replace your negative thoughts with positive ones and to expect good things to happen to you; the more you expect good things to happen, the more they will. Positive thinking can help you feel happier and have less stress.
- Develop your confidence:
Being confident is the key to feeling comfortable in your own skin. Confidence comes from within you and developing your confidence means feeling good about who you are and where you are. Work on finding at least a few things that you love about yourself, and with being happy with how you look instead of getting lost in self-consciousness. This is the time to make a commitment to start changing the way you feel about yourself.
- Don’t compare yourself to others
The most important thing you should do to feel good about yourself is stop comparing yourself to others. You always compare the worst of what you know about yourself to the best assumptions that you make about others. Comparing yourself to others will always cause you to regret what you are not, rather than allow you to enjoy who you are.
- Think you are a beautiful person
It is great if everyone around you thinks you are beautiful, but if not that doesn’t matter at all. If you think that you are ugly, you feel ugly. What you think on the inside is much more important than how people view your outside. Look in the mirror and think, how your hair looks great today or your eyes look so pretty. If you start thinking you are beautiful, people will be able to sense that. And that will make you even more beautiful.
- Focus on your strengths
Everyone has different strengths. Identify them, and then nurture them. Keeping a positive focus on your strengths will help you maintain a positive outlook and feel more comfortable with who you are.
- Spend time with people who make you feel good
A big part of feeling comfortable in your own skin is being around people such who support you and make you feel good about yourself. Dump those toxic persons who are always bringing you down, make you feel negative, and ignoring you in favor of their own racism. Hanging out with the people who compliment you, care about how you feel, and treat you with care and love.
- Take care of your body
A healthy mind comes from a healthy body. Take care of your body by honoring its needs through regular exercise, cleaning up skin and teeth and drinking lots of water. Make a list of the things you need to do to take care of yourself and then include them into your daily routine. It is easier to feel good about you when you make your needs priorities.
- maintain a healthy and positive mind
Along with healthy body, a healthy mind will help you greatly. It keeps your mind filled with positive thoughts. What practices make you feel passionate and positive about the way you are living your life? Doing what you love is an important step of loving who you are. Take time out to nurture your spirit, whether that means practicing yoga, walking or simply relaxing.
Always keep in your mind that your authenticity will help you feel your beauty. When you find who you are and being true to yourself, you will automatically feel attractive and unique. Also, it is important to remind yourself that beauty is never dependent upon the approval of others. Quite the contrary, beauty is very much self-defined and self-created.
The power to be beautiful lies not in the eyes of others. It comes from deep within you. You have to realize that you are the best and feel good about yourself. Nobody is perfect in this world. Everyone cannot get the same skin colour. So be yourself and think positive.
