When you ask people what physical traits they're self-conscious about, most people can list off more than a few in a matter of minutes. Women in particular seem armed with things they're self conscious about when it comes to their bodies. There are plenty of "embarrassing" physical traits people are self-conscious about that are totally normal.
I turned to a few of my nearest and dearest to ask them what sort of things they were self conscious about when it came to their own bodies, and they came up with more than a few answers for me. With each answer they gave, I realized that every single thing they listed was something I'd never paid attention to before. I's never noticed Hilary's supposedly crooked teeth (she sent a picture, otherwise I would've absolutely contested the fact that they're actually crooked), Becca's under eye circles, or Stephanie's alleged asymmetrical face. When you think about your own body, I'm sure there are plenty of physical traits you can come up with that you're embarrassed about. But you know what? It's completely normal. Everyone is self conscious about something. And in asking my friends to share their own "embarrassing" physical traits, I learned that those traits are not only normal, but they are things other people probably haven't notices. And that in itself is comforting, isn't it?
So think you're alone in feeling self-conscious? Read on to find out what traits several real women are "embarrassed" about.
