First off I want to say that I do not own this video. This is not mine in any way. This is a blog made by Zoe Sugg, of the YouTube channel Zoella280390 and More Zoella, featuring Louise of SprinkleofGlitter and SprinkleofChatter.

Zoe and Louise are two of my favorite YouTubers and I absolutely loved this video when I watched it today. I have always been self conscience about my body and I think Zoe and Louise do an amazing job of talking about the way people judge others. I don’t consider myself to be a large person, in fact I’m actually only 4’9” so in height I am very small. However, sometimes I do get very self conscious about my weight and size.
Buying clothes, pants in particular, is a nightmare for me. First, I have to find pants that are short enough for me. Many stores that I shop at have jeans or pants labeled long, regular, or short. A lot of the time, short jeans are still too long for me. Also, I have to find pants that are proportionate to my height and waist size, and that is not easy some times.
Fortunately for me, I wasn’t really bullied in school that much. There might have been a few comments made here or there but it wasn’t a constant thing. However, I agree with whoever said that words and verbal abuse will be remembered forever. I still remember those comments vividly and I don’t think I will be forgetting them anytime soon. Right now, I’m working on my self confidence and I’m trying to accept myself the way that I am. I’m also working on believing that I don’t need to change for anyone.
I know this blog post is very different from my usual about books but it’s just something I needed to let out. I hope this helped anyone out there that may have their own issues about their bodies and remember:
