Christopher's Positive Beauty Pledge

By Kittyfairy @KittyFairy
When it comes to body image and body confidence, it's easy to think that it's just us girls that have issues, but men also have their hang ups and issues that they have to wrestle with everyday. If they're not muscly enough, or if their hair is receding, they don't always feel happy within themselves either. So, I am really thrilled to introduce this weeks Positive Beauty Pledge (and yes, this is the boyfriend, so please be nice ;))
Christopher's Pledge about Others
I, Chris Jacklin of Busy Lifefilms, do solemnly swear to never make a nasty comment regarding someone else's appearance, either on my blog or spoken in public. I will not make fun out of the clothes other people wear and I will not be a part of the negative comments made by others. If I think someone looks good then I will tell them so as it will cost me nothing and it will give them boost in confidence.

Christopher's Pledge about Himself

Sticks and stones etc. Seriously though, my honest to goodness promise to myself is to never let anyone bring me downwith childish comments. I am what I am, as Popeye would say.The Bad

What are you doing in this picture?Starting a weeks holiday in Wales. I look a bit zonked out however I'd just been traveling a few hours. Why don't you like it?

I just don't like the face I'm pulling (looks a bit Shaun of the Dead). I think this pic was taken without me realisingso I was a bit caught off guard. Is there anything that you like about this picture?I think I weighed a bit less then. I don't think that T-shirt would fit me know. The Good

What are you doing in this picture?Going for a walk somewhere in Wales.Why do you prefer this picture to the first one?I look a little bit shaper and I'm holding a camera (I suppose it hints to my creative side). 
Has comparing how you feel about both these pictures made you realize anything about how you view yourself?Both pictures bring back fond memories which is important to look back on as the years go by. Give us an example of someone that you consider to be "unconventionally" beautiful (for a male, "beautiful" doesn't seem right, but just play along!!):

Bill BaileyWhy do you consider him to be "unconventional"?He's probably not considered to be particularly attractive (hmm, this is difficult coming from a bloke) compared with the Brad Pitts and George Clooney's of this world. After all the media industry is full of stereotypically attractive people.Why do you think he is "beautiful"?He has a gift, a gift to make people laugh which is a talent that affects many people in a positive way. This will be remembered over someone's looks any day. Expect maybe Emily Browning. Ahem.And with that, I award my lovely boyfriend with the Positive Beauty Badge:

Hmm, do you think I should have made him a more "manly" coloured badge?? Oh well, I'll just let him have this nice picture of Emily Browning to go with it ;) It'll keep him happy for a little while anyway :D
