Start Feeling Comfortable In Your Own Skin!

You know what one piece of advice is more frustrating than just about any other? “Just be yourself.” Seriously, when has anyone ever found that to be a useful thing to say? Sure, on the surface it seems like a reasonable thing, but then you’ve got to deal with the question, what if you don’t know who “yourself” is? Or what if you’re not that comfortable being yourself in the first place? The truth is that before you can start “being yourself” you have to come to terms with yourself which is not something that’s always that easy. But don’t worry, because it’s far from impossible. With that in mind, here are some ways that you can start feeling a little more comfortable in your own skin.

Find your look

Let’s face it, looking good and being attractive really isn’t as important as the media might make them out to be, but that doesn’t mean that trying to make it so that you like the way you look isn’t something that has plenty of value. After all, it’s much easier to become more confident when you like the way that you look. Finding fashions that you like or using sites like The Right Hairstyles to find a style that suits you are great ways to create a look for yourself that you can really enjoy. You’ll be amazed at how much more comfortable you feel from such simple changes.   

Get used to your face

The reality is that most young people, and a lot of older people, to be honest, have a pretty warped view of what they look like. They see images online and on TV of gorgeous people, and it gives them a twisted sense of what a human being is actually supposed to look like. The best way to combat this? Selfies. No, seriously. Selfies are a fantastic way to get used to the way that your face looks and to start finding things to like about it. By being able to dictate the angles and filters that you use, you can highlight the things that you like about the way you look while downplaying things that you might not like so much!

Be proud of the things you love

One of the hardest things about feeling comfortable in who you are is the constant fear that you’ll be shunned or made fun of because of the things that you like. But if you love a particular show, band, or book series, then don’t be afraid to be open about it. The great thing about the internet and social media age is that it’s never been easier to find other people who are interested in the same things as you and connect with them.

Here’s the big secret that no one tells you: no one really has that much of an idea of who they are. No matter how old people get, or how much they seem to have their act together, everyone is still just trying to figure things out as they go. So stop giving yourself such a hard time and try to learn to enjoy the process of figuring out who you are one step at a time!
