How hard can it be?
Compliment yourself because you are simply beautiful.
Now that you have read it, now practice it out loud.
” I am beautiful.”
I believe that society has done so much damage to us that we don’t even feel comfortable in our own skin. On my previous blog I mentioned my thoughts on how I felt when I saw someone that I saw as “better” in every other way that I am not. All that did to me was bring me down lower and lower until it got to the point where it was effecting my relationship. I knew that this was not the person I am. I have nothing against that person and everything against myself. My insecurities got the best of me. I cried. I yelled. I argued. I fought. I did harm. I was ashamed of myself for what I became. I became someone I never thought I would be because I did not accept myself and I did not love myself.
It got to the point where it was pure rage because I didn’t understand why and no one understood me. I had to really step back and look at myself to accept why I had become that way. Never had I thought that I would be this person that I am so ashamed of and regretted so much of what I did. I caused so much pain and so much hurt that I can never take back.
After I accepted the reasons why, only then I was able to prevent it and fix it. I read blogs and post about how to love yourself. I read tips on how to be a better person because I was obviously not the best person I could be at that point in life. I found tips that were helpful. I found methods to help myself feel at peace.
I use to say I am beautiful without really feeling it and meaning it. Now when I say it, I truly do feel beautiful. I know its silly to say it to yourself but saying it to yourself is the first step to everything else.
I know its easy to feel intimated, not worthy, not beautiful, not what you want to be but know this; you are not alone. I am not perfect like you. I have moments when I am back at that mind set but just knowing the fact I can choose not to be brings me back to the present. I have been there and I am here now. You can overcome it too.
If you don’t like something about yourself, then change it. Do it for the right reasons, for yourself, for your health and for your soul. Remember that change does not happen over night. Baby steps and you will get there.
I know what it’s like trying to reach out for help but felt like no one would understand me. I would either get teary or cry when I tried messaging a friend to talk to. It was difficult. I am here for you.
My first advice to you is this, compliment yourself because you are simply beautiful. No one knows your story. No one knows the struggles you have to overcome. No one knows the tears you have shed and the battle scars that you carry. Because of just that, you are beautiful to me.
My blogs are not planned out, this one is very personal. If you are reading this, I hope that it helps you in someway to find your inner peace so that you can overcome this fight. The hardest fights are the ones with ourselves.
