Yes, I am Female..Part 2

I absolutely loved writing my ‘Yes I am female’ post, and I feel like I got a good response from it as I had hope, I hope to encourage people never to feel ashamed or embarrassed about the way they look or anything that is to ever happen to their body. So here is part two for you and I hope you enjoy it just as much as the first one I did. If there is any topic’s that may fit into the ‘Yes I Am Female’ posts and you would like me to cover my thoughts and opinions on them let me know, and I can always do a ‘Part 3’. I absolutely love writing these; I feel I have so much passion when it comes to them, I could go on for days with them.

Make-up – A lot of girls wear make-up now, its a part of life for me as it is for me, every day to wake up and put it on if I am leaving the house. However, I have also found I will push myself sometimes to have that makeup free day if I feel my skin needs a little breathing time. A girls make-up all comes down to her, and how she wants it, she’ll never do it for anyone else. You don’t wake up in the morning and think yes I need to do it this way because I see so and so person. It simply doesn’t work like that. You do it to make yourself happy, make yourself feel a little more confident maybe. Don’t let anyone tell you; you should change how you do it, if it makes you happy keep it that way. And to the girls who don’t wear it, don’t feel like you should as you see everyone else wearing it daily, I absolutely envy the girls who don’t wear it and don’t feel they need it. Id love to wake up and times and be able not to do it, but once you’re used to it, it becomes a habit. Be proud of how you are whether you are a make-up wearer or you don’t wear it at all or even if you are in-between. You are your own person, and you create your own happiness and confidence daily don’t let anyone put you down for your make-up or no make-up ways!

Weight- Now my weight has constantly been up and down my biggest being a size 16 and my smallest being a size 8. If I’m honest being a size, 8 didn’t make me any happier than I was when I was a size 16. The way it is all portrayed now in society is as if a girl should be a size 8 or less to be happy. WRONG! Your size doesn’t dictate your happiness, you do. Don’t beat yourself up if you can’t match society’s standards. I absolutely love that you now see more plus size models than you did, and they have an amazing figure. I think that they send out the right message to young girls just to show them they don’t have to be stick thin to get someone to like them or to fit in. All models I believe should be shown in every size, just to show how different bodies can be and show that you don’t need to be a size 8 to look good. Don’t let anyone put you down about your size; you are perfect the way you are. Wear the clothes that you love, and wear them with pride. I’ll be the first to admit I have my days where I’m not a fan of my weight, and I’d like to lose some or gain some, everyone does that’s normal. But like me, don’t let yourself stay with those days let them come and go and then find otherwise to be comfortable with your own body. The way I do this is finding clothes that I love the look on myself, whether it be that they may show off parts of my body I like or whether they hide little things that niggle me on those bad days. But I refuse to be ashamed of it or feel like I have to lose or gain weight for someone else’s happiness just because they don’t like the way I look.

Remember you are perfect in your own way and be proud of it and show it off!

Yes, I am Female..

Yes, I am a female, yes I get periods every month, yes I have suffered from water infections, bacterial infections or thrush. No that doesn’t mean I’m an unclean person or that I have to hide it. This weeks post is all about us girls. I’m a very open person if I’m unwell I’m not afraid to say what’s wrong or walk into a shop and get the correct products to help me get better.

Periods- They happen too many of us. I know a lot of people who will go into the shop look for their tampons or pads and hide them away under some other shopping they have. Or if they are unwell due to some of the symptoms that can come along with a period they work their way around it instead of saying. We didn’t ask to be female or have this happen to us every month so why should we feel we shouldn’t speak about it when it happens?

Infections- Yes they are not the nicest things to happen down they nor are they something to be ashamed of. It is a very sensitive part of the body, and the smallest bit of ‘bad’ bacteria that gets in there can set something off. Sometimes it can just be a case of what you have washed with or the bubble bath you have used. I have suffered many water infections and one case of thrush and vaginal vaginosis. I do fully understand why some people wouldn’t want to say, but don’t be made to feel like your ‘dirty’ or anything like that.

I have a male friend at work, and I’m really not afraid to tell him what’s going on with me when I’m a little moody or feeling under the weather, I will happily just say Mother Nature. I do however remember his face the first time when he asked me, and that was my response, it was that look as if to say ‘thanks but I didn’t need to know that.’ However to me it’s normal it happens every month, and I’m not afraid to say, I’m not afraid of the reaction I can receive. If someone is going to ask I’m am going to say, I’m not in the wrong for saying what’s wrong with me just because they are male and don’t go through it. I refuse to feel I should hide it or be a little more inclined to hide what I am buying or what I am going to see my doctor for. Don’t get me wrong I may be a little more quiet about if I get an infection down below and just say I’m not well but if they ask again I will just say, I’m not shy about it or ashamed it happened to me.

So, Yes I am female, and I am proud of that. I refuse to hide any ‘female problems’ that I ever have in life just because someone may find it ‘vile’ or ‘disgusting.’ I’m sorry, but it’s not it happens, it can be a part of life for us females, I won’t let someone make me feel dirty or disgusting with what happens to my body.
