I have a bit of a different post for you all today, there's something I kind of want to write about because it's something I've noticed a lot of lately, particularly on Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. And it's self esteem - or lack of it shall I say.
Every single day without fail I see girls (and some guys) complaining about the way they look or posting pictures of Megan Fox or Miranda Kerr with captions like 'Ugh, Why aren't I her?', or tweets about how they're 'ugly' or 'forever alone' and it makes me so sad.
There are so many so-called beautiful women in the public eye and people let it get them down. But I'm sure if we all had stylists and make up artists as do the likes of Cheryl Cole and Rosie Huntington Whiteley, we'd all look pretty bloody fabulous at all times!
People say that they wish they could go back to say the 50s, when the idea of a 'perfect woman' was curvy rather than size zero, but in a way I don't think that's right either. There never really was a time where there wasn't a general idea of the 'ideal woman' whether it was curvy pin up girls in the 50s, or the 'size 0' of today, there's not been, or at least there hasn't for a long time, a time where the world wasn't obsessed with the perfect woman. The reason this idea of the so called perfect woman changes as often as it does, and the reason so many people have different views on it is simple. Perfect doesn't exist. Everyone has their own version of perfect, some people like their ladies curvy, some like them tiny, some like them blonde, some brunette. Who's really to say what kind of girl is the most beautiful?
One of the reasons, possibly the worst reason for girls hang-ups and low self esteem is the people we surround ourselves with. Guys can be thoughtless and shallow and other girls can be bitchy. But those guys are not worth your time and those girls are probably focusing on other peoples flaws to attempt to feel better about their own. Girls can be bitchy and we've probably all been guilty of it. If not directly to someone's face, behind their back, or even just a stupid comment about someone on the street. You don't gain anything from it, if anything it should just make you feel guilty.
Boys are culprit's too, as I said guys can be shallow and judgemental, but you know what? The ones that are are so not worth your time. You may think you're 'forever alone' because every guy right now wants a skinny blonde with huge boobs but would you want to be with a guy who's in it for your looks? Just because you don't look like a Victoria's secret model (and let's face it, in real life, even VS Models probably don't look like VS Models) it doesn't mean you should settle for a guy who isn't exactly what you want. If you want a guy who'll open doors for you and hold your hands in front of his friends go get him because you don't deserve any less!
It's not okay to make someone feel bad about themselves and no one has the right to do it. I've literally seen girls posting nasty comments on other girls photos and it makes me sick. Put yourself in the other girls shoes, what if someone told you you were ugly, how would you feel? If you do see this on facebook or anything, why not compliment the girl? You don't need to get mad at the nasty girl, she's not worth anyone's time, but when someone feels low, it'll probably make their day to receive a lovely compliment. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful and no one has the right to take that away.

It's so true that beauty comes from within, no matter what you look like, if you're ugly on the inside, it shows on the outside. So take it from me, no matter what size you are, what your hair colour is or what you look like, as long as you're a nice person, you are beautiful.

I love you!



  1. And AMEN TO THAT!! haha absoloutely FABULOUS post! I loved reading this and found myself nodding along. I totally agree about the whole skinny/curvy debate - i dont think its fair either. Im naturally quite skinny and i get fed up of people staring at me gobsmacked when i eat a burger! Its ridiculous. There shouldnt be an 'ideal'. & very true, i stay well away from those guys. I shall never have mahoosive knockers but thats how i am! haha We should all be proud of who we are and not get so hung up on things that dont matter.

    Well said girly :) xx

  2. this is such a lovely post Chloe! very well written! everything is 100% true. I hate how mean girls can be to each other! girls should strive to empower other girls and not cut them down.

    love this post!

  3. What a beautiful post Chloe. Girls in particular can be so cruel and bitchy and often it just stems from jealousy and their own insecurities. It's so sad when people can't allow others to be happy in their own skin.

    I agree that if you are beautiful on the inside, you are also beautiful on the outside.

  4. An amazing post :) I agree completely and my mum says that people who are kind are beautiful because it shows! haha
