Ciao my wonderful bloggers. How are you all? Been a while since we last met each other through our blogs. I hope this post finds you in good health. I’ve been MIA lately because my brain had stopped producing ideas. So I thought to take a sweet little break. I remember telling one of my friend’s about my ineffectual attempts to which she said – it’s not that hard, you just pick a topic and write about it. Yes, I agree. It’s not rocket science but to be honest I couldn’t even decide on a topic. Sometimes you have no ideas at all. And then there are moments when you are overflowing with sudden rush of ideas. I’m somehow convinced that this will sound relatable unless you are one of those who have creative minds 24&7.
If you are following me from some time or if you have read a handful of my posts, you must have observed that my life is an open book. I do make an effort to use a subtle approach at times but I try to be as honest as I can. Today I thought to make a confession. If you know me personally, then you would have to agree that I’m the type of person to always boost your self-esteem and uplift your confidence. Now will you please cease to ponder if my compliments are always bogus. They aren’t. So the confession to be made to you or a question to be asked to myself is – do I really practice what I preach? Maybe not. Suppose you tell me that you hate your body, I’ll immediately intervene (before letting you finish) and expatiate on the topic (love yourself) for good 20 minutes. When it comes to my own self, I’ve few inhibitions. I try to train my mind but nothing seems to work. I have freckles on face and stretch marks on my body and I hate both. I don’t have the confidence to step out without concealing my freckles. I know it sounds stupid but that’s how I feel with freckles showing. As for stretch marks, despite being aware that life is too short to stress over some marks on your body, I am still not totally comfortable with it.
That’s all. I know yall are going to say that having flaws is OK and not a big deal, nothing to be self-conscious about. Perhaps I know what is right but occasionally need to hear it from someone else. Let me know in the comments section below what is that one thing that makes you uncomfortable. No lies. This ain’t no competition.
