Body Positivity

September 13, 2022

By Annabelle Nigh

   Body image has been a big issue amongst teenagers for a long time. They see perfect-looking people on social media and television. What teens don’t realize is that a lot of what they see isn’t real. People use photoshop, props, and angles to make you think they have no flaws. 

   We find things in ourselves that we think makes us less worthy. We want to change our hair, our eyes, and our bodies. The reality is that you’ll always find something about yourself that you wish was different. Everybody is different. Everybody is beautiful. 

   Everyone is unique, yet we try to fit into the same mold and try to be the same person. We’re not the same person, and we aren’t supposed to be. That's why it's so hard for everyone to look the same, act the same, and overall be the same. We as a society need to accept everyone for who they are and not for who we want them to be. 

Things you can do to encourage this:

*Give more compliments

*Don’t discourage people for being confident in themselves

*Embrace each others differences

*Tell yourself everyday that you are beautiful

*Surround yourself with positive people and be a positive person yourself

*Be kind!!
