One of the most difficult things to deal with in modern society is that the media constantly tries to convince us that we're somehow not good enough. No matter what you do, the world around you will often make it totally clear that it'll never be enough. Advertising and TV tell us that we're too fat, too thin, too tall, too short. No matter what kind of person you are, society will try and find a way to tell you that you're not good enough. For a lot of people, it can feel as though breaking out of this would be pretty much impossible but the truth is that it's not. There are plenty of things that you can do in order to reject the expectations that society places on you, but one of the very best is to embrace your own natural beauty. After all, if you can do that, the world is never going to be able to sell you a solution to a problem that it invented. With that in mind, here are some things that you can do to start embracing your own natural beauty.

Embrace your hair the way it is naturally

Everyone seems to want different hair than what they have. People with straight hair spend hours in front of the mirror curling it, while people will curly hair spend just as long trying to straighten theirs. Everyone wants to change their hair because they've been told to want whatever someone else has. The first step towards accepting yourself is being able to embrace your own hair. The truth is that different kinds of hair always respond differently to cuts and styles and knowing what your hair is going to do is the best way to find something that you really love. Check here to see just how much the kind of hair you naturally have can impact the kinds of styles you can try. Trying to force your hair to do something that it's not really meant to is just going to end up making you feel frustrated.

You can wear anything

There will be some people who will tell you that certain clothes are only for certain people. Rompers are for people with short bodies and long legs crop tops are only for skinny people. You've probably heard these kinds of things before, and you might have even believed them. But here's the truth that a lot of people really need to hear: you can wear whatever you want. It doesn't matter who you are or what size you are; you can wear any clothes you like as long as they make you feel good. People who try and act like certain styles are only for certain people are just trying to make you feel bad about yourself, and there's no reason that you should ever let them do that.

It's okay to go makeup free

 Makeup can be a fantastic thing. It's a great way to be creative, to express yourself, and to give yourself that extra boost of confidence that we all need some of the time. However, a lot of women are made to feel as though they have to wear it all the time no matter what. They feel as though they're going to be judged if they don't make an effort to put on a full face of makeup before leaving the house. The truth is that there is no reason why you should have to wear makeup for any reason other than if you want to. You don't have to suddenly stop wearing it altogether, just remember that it's totally okay to go makeup free if you want to.

Be proud of your shape

Society has this utterly bizarre attitude that some body shapes are somehow better than others. As though being skinny and petite is just inherently better than anything else. Well, that's total nonsense. Everybody is beautiful, and every body is beautiful! It doesn't matter who you are or what size you are, you should be proud of your shape and you should never let anyone try and bring you down.

Now, all of these things might seem incredibly simple, but the truth is that they are a lot easier said than done. After all, learning to embrace things about yourself that society might try and tell you are wrong isn't something that most people are going to be able to do right away without putting in some hard work. The path to self-love can often be a long a difficult one, but it's totally worth it. Once you're able to embrace your natural beauty, there's nothing the world could ever do to try and make you feel bad about yourself.
