Life’s Big Questions
Thirteen years old is a typical age for young ladies to start shaving their legs, but don’t be pressured if you aren’t ready yet. Talk to your mom or dad and see if it is something you want to start doing. Someone can show you how to do it and make you more comfortable with the process.
Everyone is different when it comes to starting with shaving or even getting their periods! Everyone has a different body and the option to do things about it when they want. Don’t feel pressured to shave your legs just because everyone’s doing it. If you feel ready and you know that you want to do it, then go for it! If you want to hold off on it for a little bit, then feel free to hold off on it! :)
I can totally relate to this. When I was younger, there weren’t many guys at my school who I thought were that great and I didn’t have crushes on anyone. All my friends would ask me who my crush was and I felt awkward that I didn’t like anyone, because they ALL had crushes. It’s totally OK to not have a crush all the time. You have to find the right person, and if you haven’t yet, that’s totally normal! All things in life will play out.
At 12 years old, you are growing into your body and you may not feel comfortable with it yet. Give it some time. In the meantime, they do make great bras that are minimizers that may make you more comfortable. Learn to love the body that God gave you!
Don’t be embarrassed! Everyone has different body types and everyone’s bodies grow at different rates. Maybe someone else might wish that they had the body YOU have.
