Self love for me has been a long old journey for me, I struggled with it for pretty much most of my life, whether it was at school or at home, I never seemed to feel comfortable with my body. People can tell me that they think I’m gorgeous or they think I am perfect just the way I am, but actually believing it is a completely different thing. I feel like self worth and self love have always been linked in some way, when I love myself I am always feeling like I’m worth a lot more, however when I don’t or when I’m struggling with loving my body I definitely don’t feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders.
I’ve always been a firm believer in loving yourself, it’s sort of the education that you don’t learn at school, we need to educate ourselves. Now I know that isn’t exactly the easiest thing to do, there is so much pressure on us to look a certain way, be a certain way, even act a certain way because trust me, I feel it.
The pressure to be perfect, the pressure to look a certain way, the pressure to be the person that the world wants you to be rather than being yourself.
I am the kind of person that will sabotage my life because I don’t believe I am worthy of certain things, I sometimes look at the opportunities that I get through my blog and I think, do people believe that my little corner of the internet is worth it?
Well here is my letter to you, the person who is reading this, maybe you’re looking for self love, self worth and everything in between, or maybe you’re just reading this to hear me ramble.
On those days where you don’t love yourself as much as you normally would, remember that there will be bad days, but they don’t last forever.
You’re an absolute badass, you’re strong as hell, a warrior, when life gives you lemons you squirt the lemon juice in their eyes and do what it takes to do what makes you happy.
You’re a spectacular human being, you’re capable of so many things, you’re worthy of the world. If you work hard, the results will come eventually. It just takes time.
I know what I’m saying is easier said than done, I’ve been battling anxiety, depression and agoraphobia, they can cause you to feel absolutely bloody horrendous. It feels like you’re on this emotional rollercoaster and there seems like there is no way off.
During those moments though, don’t forget that your body is a temple, whether you have lumps and bumps in certain places, whether you’ve not got the bone structure, or at certain angles you have a double chin but that doesn’t mean you’re not beautiful. You’re beautiful in so many ways.
Never forget that your self worth isn’t based on the way you look, the way you talk, self worth is so much more than that. Never forget that.
