The Somewhat Uncomfortable Topic.

Posted on Updated on


ahhh

Let’s talk puberty!

Nooo don’t groan! This talk will be fun, I PROMISE.

So you were like 8,9,10,11,12,13 when something funny started happening to your body right? I mean all types of weird stuff. You started noticing that you had boobs—tiny ones or maybe a tad bit rounder ones—and then you noticed that hair was growing in all types of weird places.

You might have had a growth spurt that made you a bit clumsy—in some cases, terribly clumsy.

And then one day your tummy started to hurt or you felt a little too uncomfortable and OMG you were on your first period!

Tears
Dis tew much 😦

The point here? It’s that you are not alone. You are not the only girl who has ever gone through any of this before. Puberty? It’s the norm.

You may have gone through it earlier than most girls, or later, or maybe it came around at the average time, but the big picture is that no one is more “special” or “cooler” than you are just because of their physical development.

Back when I was in middle school, it was a “bad thing” to be made curvy. Back then you were just considered “fat”. Currently, the “popular” trend is to be curvy. To sum it all up? Trends suck. When one thing is in, the other one is out. How lame.

So. Lame.

Why can’t everything just be “in” at the same time?

Here at Carolina Girls in Action, we know that a trend doesn’t define how “cool”, “popular”, or “attractive” we are. At C.G.I.A. we know that everyone is unique and everyone is “cool”, “popular”, and “attractive” in our book.
