Why Does Someone Twice My Size Seem Twice as Confident Than Me?
Every KhaleejiGirl goes through insecurities with her body. Regardless of whether your legs are too wide, your stomach never seems to get as skinny as you want, your face never makes you look bigger in pictures unless you suck in the jelly underneath your chin. The list goes on and on. But then you look at a colleague of yours who is nowhere close to having the same body as yours. She may even be much bigger than you but you can’t help but notice, her weight does not phase her. In fact, she does not stress about this as much as you may be stressing. Your colleague is confident in her own skin.
You start to think to yourself, how did that happen?
You have nothing against your colleague. You may even be close friends at work. But the thought still lingers in your mind.
How did she get so confident?
That shouldn’t be the ultimate question though. What should be the defining question is why are you not happy with what you have? We see it in celebrities: one day Rihanna gains weight and the next day she loses it. Regardless, this does not stop her from being the confident rockstar that she is.
Well, what if instead of obsessing over how that last piece of bread led to our inability of closing our jeans, what if we just change the narrative of our minds? What if we just decide that we are strong confident people who, dare I say It, are happy with our bodies?
