The “I am so cute”-obsessed, “I have so much fun” crowd of our culture has taken the world by storm in recent years, but a few things can make you feel like you’re “so much more than that.”
These articles highlight the ways to take action, not to be complacent about yourself and to make your own choices about what’s cute and not.
We’ve rounded up the top 10 tips for making the transition from being a “chicken or egg” to being an “adult” and the “chick-o-lantern” to a “mammal.”1.
Don’t worry about what others think of you.
It’s OK to feel insecure about your appearance.
It doesn’t mean you should be ashamed of your body.
When you’re insecure about who you are, you may feel like it’s “wrong” to be ashamed.2.
Don ‘t be too picky about your friends and family.
It can be tempting to be the only person who doesn’t feel a certain way about yourself.
It may seem strange to think about it, but the fact is, it’s OK.3.
Know when to stop being an egg and become a mammal.
When someone makes you feel uncomfortable or makes you question your own worth, it doesn’t make you an “I-can’t-please-you-anymore-than-a-battery-sized chicken.”
You have choices.
You can make them with others or you can let them go.4.
Be careful about the things you like.
It feels like it took a while, but now you can finally take pride in who you really are.
You know you’re a good person, and that you’ve learned to make the best of your life.5.
Don’ t feel like the world owes you.
Donny has it good, and you’re still going to feel good about yourself, even if it’s not exactly what you expected.
It just takes some time.6.
Recognize that it can be hard to know when you’re doing okay, but it’s a good idea to keep checking in with yourself and the people around you.
You may not have the answers, but you can still make progress.7.
Get to know your body, and take time to understand the differences.
A good guide to your body type is called the Body Type Guide by the University of Minnesota.
You’ll find it at http://belly.uwaterloo.ca/bodies-guide/belly-type-guide.html and at http/r/bodytypeguide.
Your body type will be different from everyone else’s.
It will be something that you can figure out for yourself.8.
Take the time to discover your body image.
Donning clothing that’s too large or too tight can be a sign of self-confidence issues.
You don’t need to “out” yourself in order to feel confident about yourself in your body and appearance.
Your own body image should be based on who you think you are and what you want.9.
Stop obsessing over what others say about you.
If you’re feeling insecure or a little overwhelmed by people’s opinions about you, don’t let it get to you.
Instead, take a deep breath and think about what you need to say to be okay with yourself.10.
Make your own decision about what makes you a chick.
You’re not a chick if you’re not interested in what other people think of your appearance, personality, or body type.
If the people you know don’t feel like they want to be friends with you, you can stop being a chick and start being a mammal!
