Body Image

It feels like I'm creating these impossible standards for myself. I look in the mirror every day and want something about me to be different. I'm not being teased or told what to wear or criticized by anyone else. But I keep telling myself that I should look a certain way. And when I can't meet those "goals" I feel like a failure. My friends all tell me to stop complaining, that I'm worried about nothing. but they're all skinny and can wear the "trendy" clothes, they don't have lump on their stomach when they look in the mirror every morning. I do. My body shape doesn't allow me to to wear the trendy clothes. And I'm completely fine with that, but when everyone else you know shops at one store and you can't because of your body shape, it feels kind of crappy(pardon my language). I'm tired of comparing myself to other people and judging myself based on the majority of people I know, but it's really hard when the people that surround you are completely different than you. Especially when they have what society considers to be perfect bodies, but continue to call themselves fat, and then tell me to stop complaining about it. Be grateful for what you have, don't compare yourself to others, and always stay true to yourself.
