Insecurities! Uncertain or anxious about oneself; not confident – says Google. I say it’s being human. We are insecure about either ourselves or others and sometimes over some bizarre things which don’t even make sense after a point! We ask our friends – Bro am I putting on weight? Am I too skinny? Is my skin too dry? Too oily? Too rough? And if someone asks what happened to your face? Gonnnnnneeeeeee! For the next 10 days, we’re under our blankets. I just wonder if it’s worth giving so much of our time to think about these little things called insecurities? To be frank, during this lockdown I felt soo insecure – about my work, my heart, my physique, my mental health. Literally everything! But I figured we don't have control over everything! So let’s try and stay in control of things we can control and be the best version of ourselves. All I am trying to say is, turn your insecurities into your strengths. It’s ok if someone says you’re too dark or too thin or that your eyes are too big. All you have to do is believe in yourself and hustle until the end. Insecurities are inevitable, they come and go by. Know your worth♥️ That's all for today 🙌

It’s easy for people to overthink the negative opinion of just one person. We are often too harsh on ourselves. Girl, you are perfect!! Trust me. I bet if you posted a photo of you that you are most insecure about also there are people here that will still love it and love you.”
