In a world full of social media, expectations, and standards, I sometimes feel lost. Occasionally I find myself clicking around on Facebook and looking through other people's photos. I see these other people and think of how much thinner, prettier, taller, or more stylish they are than me and I feel like I need to change the way I look; like I need to somehow become slimmer and buy new clothes.

One thing you have to remember is that people are only posting the BEST pictures and MOST FLATTERING stories they have of themselves. This is usually self-indulgent and to make themselves feel better. It's just as bad a looking at a women's magazine where women are inaccurately portrayed. Unless your friends are like this in real life, don't sweat it. If they are, ask them for some help and advice! I was a tomboy for as long as I can remember but am slowly doing more "girly" things.. I still won't be like some of my friends, but I'm happy and think I don't need it. In my early 30s, and very happy with who I am now.
