Disclaimer: This is actually an old post I did on Instagram while I was in my blog rut. As a matter of fact, I’ve been pulling a lot of inspiration from the microblogging I was doing over there…sssshhhhh don’t tell anyone. Just enjoy…
I bought these boyfriend jeans during the summer and wasn’t able to wear them until recently.
The tag said they were my size, but sadly, they were too tight when I got home.
(Lesson here…always try shit on…our sizing system is total bullshit and varies from store to store and from style to style. I would think boyfriend jeans would run larger than skinny jeans…I was mistaken.)
In the past, after losing weight and busting my ass in the gym, having to put on a “larger” size would have depressed me. Much like the scale, I allowed a number, this time on a tag, THAT NO ONE COULD EVEN SEE, depress me.
What the actual fuck?!?!
Looking back on stuff like that makes me want to smack myself. Really hard.
I allowed stupid things to rob me of happiness during my journey.
The scale, a tag inside of a pair of jeans…let’s not forgot comparing yourself to others on social media. <insert gigantic eye roll here>
SO. DAMN. DUMB.
My point with all of this is simple….
- Keep your eyes on your own journey.
- Celebrate every victory you have. (Especially non-scale ones.)
- Don’t allow the scale to dictate your life.
- Don’t squeeze yourself into a pair of jeans or not wear a pair simply because the tag inside has a certain number on it.
Wear what makes you feel confident and don’t worry about wether it says S/M/L or if the number is 2/10/16 etc.
The size you wear doesn’t matter…your confidence does!
