How do I become comfortable with my body?


I’m going on a trip this weekend with a friend of mine. She’s so pretty and thin, it makes me feel really embarrassed around her. We’re going to a resort where you just wear swimsuits the whole time, and I’m not very comfortable with my own body.

1. Look at yourself at in the mirror.
2. Smile.
3. Repeat this, "I am smart. I am beautiful. People like me."

I do this when I feel self conscious (usually every other day, if not every day) and it makes me feel better. :)
Well, if she is your friend, she will love you anyway. And you shouldn't care too much about what others say. Heck - it's your body. But if still, you are not comfortable, then you should exercise. :) Exercise though, not for anyone but yourself.
My stupid body changes so much from one month to the next that I don't have time to get used to it being one way before it is entirely different. I got boobs like late last year and now it's like they won't stop growing, but I can go forever without shaving my legs and pubic hair is never going to come in. My mom asked me why I was shaving and I'm like WTF! It seems like most of my friends are women and I'm stuck somewhere in the middle. So I feel your pain and if you figure out how to deal with it, let me know.
@weepingsaddarkangel You're really lucky you don't have to shave. Count your blessings!
