This is a lesson that took me an incredibly long time to learn. Since I was 13, I have struggled with severe depression and anxiety issues. These issues led to years of body dysmorphia, as well as self harm. I am not proud of it, and it’s very hard for me to discuss, but at some point you have to be vulnerable about your past in order to help people realize they aren’t alone in their struggles.♀️
If you struggle with self love and acceptance, I hear you. It took me years and years to get to a point where I was comfortable with myself, and honestly I still struggle from time to time. Whenever someone exits my life, I still fall victim to questioning my worth. Whenever I eat something I shouldn’t, I fear that I’ll fall back into binge eating again and beat myself up over it. Truthfully, I don’t think it will ever go away. But you can either let these things come fleetingly, or set up a permanent camp in your mind and in your heart. That decision is and always will be, up to you.
Feed your mind love every day. Always remind yourself of things you love about yourself. Are you kind? Are you honest? Are you persistent? Are you driven? Are you smart? Are you fit? What do YOU love most about you??
