With so much fluidity in diversity and differences amongst women, there is one area where there are two sides and two sides only: Women who post selfies and women who do not. You either do or you don’t – you either have or you haven’t. Just like the famous Mona Lisa, I am a Pro-Selfie kind of gal and I would argue that more of you are pro-selfie than anti. Whenever I’m out with my friends or think I look bomb AF in a random ass bathroom, you bet your margarita I’m gonna whip out my iPhone and snap that pic.
Is it a little cocky? Yes – nothing wrong with that. Is it narcissistic? Absolutely not. What I would argue confidently is that it shows confidence. Confidence in yourself – and that you don’t care who is looking. So if you’re sitting here right now at your screen wondering – should I post my selfie or should I not? Keep reading, I promise I’ll have you convinced.
1. We want to see your hot ass outfit:
This is a no bullshit answer. I’ve literally DM’d girls asking where they got their bikinis and trendy little pieces from – because guess what: I want to look as f*cking good as I think you do. Seriously. There’s nothing better than finding a new place to shop or spotting a trend you know you could rock by effortlessly scrolling through your Instagram.
2. You might be someone’s reason to be confident in themselves:
I love, love, love, love, LOVE when I see girls whose bodies match mine. I mean I love when I see girls who show their bodies shamelessly anyway but there’s nothing like having a sister from another mister who looks a lot like you and looks great. Growing up I always was (and still am) the girl with the fat ass, wide hips, and smaller waist. I have people who tell me this is a blessing now, but back then? I was so insecure
Whenever I see girls online with similar body shapes embracing their size and shape it makes me feel totally okay rocking my bod too. I am now well aware that I’ll never be a size 4 again and that my jeans require a dance to get into, but I’m totally okay with that too.
