Today I want to talk about self love….How much do you love yourself?! Can you keep a secret? There was actually a point in my life where, not only did I doubted myself, but also I didn’t quite love myself. You see, society now a days have this certain image of being the best looking girl, updated fashion, tons of money, and just being updated in the “game” in which so many teens end up not loving who they are! The funny thing is that we all have different characteristics that make us unique, and there is always that moment where we do not see it.
I get really aggravated when I go out, and I hear little girls between the ages of 9 and 14 say that the foundation does not match them. Also, I get so mad when I hear a little girl in the store saying, “Oh if I had that I would be so much better!” this is ALL caused by stupid magazines that have “quizzes” on how to be perfect. I remember when I was a teen there were these insane tests that would say what to fill out, and it would tell me what I had to do in order to be likable. I look at that now and I just laugh because I am perfect the way I am and so are you!
I went through so many stages that I can now say that I was so blinded by idiotic ideologies, but now I am thankful that I love myself so much that no one would ever understand. In order for me to love myself, I took time for myself and I did it by isolating. Let me tell you, the more you take time ALONE oooohhh child the better you will feel! You get to see all the positive, negative, and get to write out your own goals without having anyone trying to influence you in one way or another. What you will find yourself doing is accomplishing every goal you had written down! Trust me I have been doing every single thing I wrote like word for word! Everything I ever dreamed of (even more) is finally becoming reality.
So many people will never understand you, and that is okay because not all have the same journey as you. People that will never get you and decide to walk away I am telling you it is a sign so let them go! By them doing that they show that they were never a true friend, and that they will never be there for you at all. It may take years, months, or even weeks but the true colors of a person will definitely show. People might talk crap about you, saying you ain’t worth, and blah blah blah…. but trust me honey you are more worth than gold! Some may never appreciate you but guess who will? Look in the mirror and you will find that little you just saying, “You can do this I believe in you, you don’t need negativity, and you are better than this.” Beautiful from the inside out!
How much do you love yourself? How much do you believe in yourself? How much do you spend time with yourself? Not enough? I’d say change that and start doing it because once you do your vision will be even more clear than before. It is such a therapy looking at yourself in the mirror, and seeing just how perfect you are in every single way. Everyday you wake up, I encourage you to see yourself in the mirror and say a few positive things on regards to who you are. Don’t let no one put you down, a magazine tell you how you need to look, and do not ever think that you are not beautiful. There is no quiz in this world that has to tell you what you need to be….JUST BE YOU!
If you need help, advice, or you just need to talk/rant about something I am here for you. I am just one click away and one more thing keep in mind to always speak unapologetically and with confidence! If the shoe fits to some then let them wear it, but don’t you ever let no one talk down to you….Got me?! ha! I hope you have an amazing day or night depending on where you are at!
God bless. Love ya’ll. Peace.
