Outer Changes (That are NOT from Outer Space!)
Hormones kickstart and show up as you hit puberty. The exact age for each girl is different. But it’s going to happen for sure – no escapes on that!
So how do you know when these super-secret chemical agents are on the job? First up, there will be physical changes all over your body. Changes that make you different – not ugly. Changes that transform – not trash you.
Your body gets curvier – Oooooh…Like!
Breasts grow and develop – Like!
Periods begin – Super Like! (Yes, we mean that!)
Hair growth on the body – You May not Like it at first but this is very normal and you can deal with it easily.
Pimples or acne – Not a huge Like but hey, it’s very common in puberty and can be reduced with the right medications and care. Until they settle, block the negative reactions – this is the human body blooming and blossoming.
Like them, diss them but you can’t cancel them! It takes some time to get used to your body’s different avatar. And some of the dos and don’ts (like wearing a training bra and living with periods) can bug you. But look at the bright side – you can SEE what’s happening and can work to cut down the annoying quotient as much as you can.
Hormone hassles discussed with close friends or your female relatives also help a ton. You realize you’re not alone, can deal with it soon, and can laugh along and learn to love that precious body! A body that’s BAE.
