Ok so I’m 27, in long term relationship and have low self esteem. I never feel sexy, or attractive yet people always tell me I’m naturally pretty. I’m very petite size 6-8 and 5ft 2. My boyfriend always says I’m too thin, and that guys perfer some curves. I’m not skinny and do have shape but Iv always been this way, I keep fit and go to the gym. I have suffered with adult acne but I’m so used to it now, my GP always said t wasn’t servere enough for medication. But that’s not an issue it’s getting better now.... I want to feel attractive and confident, but today via social media reality tv and magazines it’s all about this plastic look? And when I here a comment by my boyfriend like “she’s perfect” about a person I consider very fake it shocks me why the hell men find this attractive, it shouldn’t make me feel bad because I don’t clover myself in makeup or have plastic body parts. I don’t want to feel insecure but how can I train myself to stop comparing? I also look very young and people don’t take me serious especially in employment hence my I feel I’m being held bAck. I’m degree educated, worked bloody hard working full time during studies and have worked non stop since the age of 16. I just want to feel good and like I can hit the world head on!
Any advise on how I can stop comparing myself to fulse ideals?
