Have you ever looked in the mirror and the first thing that comes into your head is “I’m worried that _______ won’t like how I look physically”? Because I have. And I will be blunt and say it is simply a thought that goes towards those you are trying to ‘impress’, for me it’s men...
I’ve gotten myself into an entire rut because although I have my own walls to breakdown, I love to think that I am confident, which I am, although from time to time, I keep catching myself thinking, “I am ready to let someone in” and then I shut it away because I STILL catch myself telling myself negative thoughts towards my body when I look in the mirror, and I always think “No guy will like my body”. Which is absolutely horrible. Because I know that my worth is not based on how I look. And I KNOW that I will never be with someone that does not see who I am as a person. .
This is what really bothers me. I had this gut feeling that something was off today, because I felt guilty for over-eating last night and “breaking consistency”, overall taking a step back towards my goals. But that’s just it - I don’t NEED to look a certain way for someone else, I am doing this for myself. Therefore what I tell myself, and how I view myself, is ALL THAT MATTERS. .
YOU are not your body. YOU are your thoughts, ideas, passions, attitudes, decisions, perspectives, outlooks, your own way of living.
You are so much more than your body.
You are the kind words you treat yourself with.
You are the gorgeous smile that peaks on your face when you are happy.
You are the beautiful person without makeup on.
You are the only thing you need to know your own worth,
YOU are how much you love yourself. ✨🌻💛
