It is getting hotter outside, the sun lights up your room longer at night, and your friends keep asking you to go out for ice cream. Summer is here and it is here to stay. But with the weather getting warmer and the clothes getting thinner and shorter, often times our personal insecurities rise. Especially when it gets to our body and the way we look.

Some of us might regret to not have been on a diet or to not have been working out those last months. Usually summer hits us faster, than eating up a cup of ice cream, doesn’t it?

The things we feel insecure about often fade away in winter, when we hide them under big jumpers and baggy trousers. We cover our pimples in makeup and go home early at night. There is no time to think about the things we do not like about ourselves, there is no space to feel self-conscious.

But as soon as we get to the (in my eyes) best time of the year, summer, the time where we are free to go out, when time feels endless, that seems to be the time, we remember our insecurities and with that, most of us, lose the love for enjoyment. We centre everything about the way we appear to be. About the pimple that gets washed off from your sweat, about the skirt, that only in your eyes makes you look bad or the thought of having to hang out with people, you do not feel good around.

Why is it, that in summer, the brightest time of the year, a lot of us, tear ourselves down? We should not be worrying about the things that we think make us look bad, that we might or might not be able to change. It is not worth it, if only you see it.

You are you, you are perfect the way you are.

And the pimple on your forehead or the tight fitting skirt you bought, won’t slimmer your worth.

The only thing that you should do, is start enjoying your summer! Start enjoying being and feeling free. Go out with people you want to be with, wear the outfit you like, embrace yourself, love yourself.

Because nothing can take the beauty away from you that comes within you, nobody and nothing (not a single thing) can take you away from you!

Life is too short to worry about the workout you have missed. It is too short to feel self-conscious about what you wear.

And let me tell you, it is okay to feel insecure about something, to not feel comfortable in everything. But it is your responsibility to not let the thing you feel self-conscious about take over the love of your (summer) self!
