To be honest, tank top wasn't my thing. I have a pair of big arms and I was so afraid how if people mocked me, because I'm in their standards.
I wore tank top as I wore at this post, I have to say that I wasn't really comfortable that moment, not only because of people glares, but because of my own perception about 'perfect girl'. I always thought that I don't deserve to wear tank top and feel beautiful about this body. When I took pictures for this post, I constantly hate them, and asked my friend to take another pictures, again and again.
But I asked myself,
Aren't you tired for pleasing society with their 'beauty standards'?
So now, I decided to walk away--step by step--from my insecurities, about body image that I always thought 'beautiful' that beautiful girl should be has flawless skin, straight hair, slim and tall body but still has 'a shape' (I mean, aren't most of us constructed like that?)
I talked to myself, "Hey it's okay for not pleasing society."
Been struggling many years to love myself. I put much effort to love my curly-wavy hair, my not-so-fair skin, not so skinny body, and my scars especially acne scars on my face.
