Do you ever look at photos of yourself sitting down or turned to the side and says, “Can’t post this one. I have rolls.” Well, we all have rolls! You may look at those photos and think you’re fat but I’m here to tell you that you are beautiful and loved. Stop looking at your body and only pointing our what you think are your flaws.
I have a challenge for you. Try saying three things you hate about yourself. Okay now think of three things you love about yourself… You came up with three things you dislike about yourself in a matter of seconds huh? And you had a harder time coming up with one, let alone three things you admire about yourself. This. Is. A. Problem.
It should be the other way around. You need to focus on loving yourself inside and out. You are so unique and perfectly made. Your personality shines bright and you deserve to appreciate yourself as much as your friends and family love you. By working on this, you are allowing yourself to become happier and be more comfortable in your body.
Final Notes: When you hear someone, whether that be a friend or family member, say something negative about their appearance or personality, tell them, “Since you said something negative about yourself, you have to now say something you like about yourself.” I bet they will try to get out of it or come up with the excuse that they have nothing nice to say, but see, that is a huge problem. Remind them that you truly care about them and that they too should work on self-love.
