“Don’t change who you are because the way you are is the best you! Be yourself. Be real!” Tyler, aged 10

Be Kind To Yourself

It’s not always easy to do, but don’t compare yourself to what you see online. Celebrities and influencers will have had lots of make-up and hair done for photoshoots. And we know that lots of people don’t post the pictures of themselves when they don’t look great.

If you are finding it too hard to stop comparing yourself to people you see online, why not stop looking at those sites, or even take a break from online altogether for a while? It’ll always be there for you to go back to if you feel better again.

“My advice: Don’t think you have to fit in. Be yourself. Do and act the way you want to. Don’t let anyone change that.” Mylie, aged 10

Focus On What You Like

There’s usually one part of your body that you don’t like. But is there a part that you are really proud of? Focus on that rather the bits that you don’t like. Be proud!

Talk To Your Friends

Just because you see yourself in a negative way, we bet your friends don’t see you that way. Why not talk to them to get it off your chest? Let their positivity about you help.

If you are still struggling, then make sure you tell someone you trust. It might be a parent, carer or teacher, but let someone know how you are feeling, to see if they can help.
