My sister is making me really self-conscious by pointing
out how my body is maturing. She started talking about my hips the other day,
and says that they’re jutting out. She keeps commenting on how awkward I am,
and now all I can think about is how I look. Help me get out of this rut!
All girls go through the “awkward” stage your sister is so
kindly informing you of, so while you might not be comfy with your
ever-changing body image, you shouldn’t be concerned about your growing bod.
The hallmark phases of puberty include increasing hip prominence and the growth
Do yourself a favor and take a look at your body in the
mirror. Run your hands over your new-found curves and see for yourself how your
body is changing. And embrace it! These changes mean that you’re transforming
from a child into a young woman. It’s time to ignore your sister’s disparaging
remarks and highlight the good points of your body, yourself. More prominent hips
flatter your waist and help you fill out your jeans. They’re a good thing. Once you start viewing them that way, the
awkwardness you see now will disappear.
Good luck, babe!
