i ain't no barbie

barbie1I was never really one of "those girls" who struggled with insecurity.  I was always pretty solid in who I was and loved myself.  As a teenager I felt like I was doing pretty good that I made it through those years without hating myself & my body and never went to drastic measures to change who I was.  As I approach my 25th year of life, I am becoming one of those girls.  The insecurity has started to set in.  I'm not afraid to talk about it.  Obviously, I'm telling the world here in my blog.   It's interesting to me that for about the first 23 years-ish I was confident in who I was, and secure.  Now, I find myself struggling with those things I thought I had lucked out on. 

Maybe it's because I strive to be the best I can be for my husband who I love more than anything? Maybe it's because I'm getting "old". Who knows.  As a pastor's wife I'm supposed to be "PERFECT".  Maybe that has something to do with it (I'm obviously not perfect!)

As a woman have you struggled in this way, or maybe you are now? How to you find security in who you are?
