Life’s Big Ques­tions

J-14 - - Front Page -

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.
