We all have heard this quote “you are beautiful just the way you are”. And this quote is mainly used by girls to compliment, console other girls. However, even though girls say this, not all girls can accept themselves just the way they are. Many girls are insecure about their looks, body, height etc. Girls get jealous when they see “perfect” models on Instagram, Twitter. In the world, nobody is perfect.
One of the biggest insecurities of most girls’ is having stretch marks. A stretch mark is like a scar, and having stretch marks is fine. But for some boys, stretch marks make a girl look less attractive. And all these types of comments make a girl feel bad about their body. When a girl gives birth to a child, stretch marks appear on the stomach and lower abdomen. In some cases, stretch marks are due to genes. Even gaining or losing weight causes stretch marks to appear.
Why You Shouldn’t Feel Insecure About Stretch Marks
Giving birth isn’t an easy thing. During pregnancy, a woman has to face a lot of things. For a healthy child, a mother has to give up on her favourite food. A mother can’t sleep properly during pregnancy. She has to be careful at the time. And the time of labour is adamant. A mother has to feel a lot of pain during labour. So having stretch marks due to pregnancy is like a symbol of your efforts. Instead of feeling insecure about it, you should be proud of it. It would be best if you always embraced your stretch marks. Even celebrities get stretch marks after giving birth. As said earlier, no one is perfect.
After puberty, stretch marks can appear automatically. Even gaining weight or losing weight are the causes behind stretch marks. Many girls work hard to lose weight because they are ashamed of their weight. But in the end, they get insecure about having stretch marks. The same goes for the girls who try to gain weight. Even if a girl is an athlete or quite athletic, you will get stretch marks due to the vigorous activities. It would help if you were happy because stretch marks symbolise your achievements and struggles.
Most girls have stretch marks, more or less. So many girls can’t approach a guy because they feel their bodies aren’t attractive due to stretch marks. Some girls don’t wear crop tops or dresses that reveal their legs, arms, or stomach because they have stretch marks. They think those types of dresses don’t suit them. All this thinking are very wrong. Your body is beautiful with or without stretch marks. And matured men don’t care about girls having stretch marks because love is about caring, understanding, not about who has the perfect body.
All over the internet, there are techniques to reduce stretch marks. It’s okay to try to reduce it, but don’t feel less than anyone because you got stretch marks. Everyone is beautiful in their ways.
