In this day in age I feel like society makes it really hard to love yourself as a woman. Actually, it’s not just a feeling — I know for a fact that society makes it really hard to love yourself no matter your gender. With the constant need to advertise their products, companies consistently remind us of how we are not enough and we need more facial surgery, weight loss surgery, or even more products just to feel good about ourselves. Well not anymore! Today we are here to remind you how beautiful you are. Hopefully by the end of this post, you’ll remember your worth and feel nothing but good about yourself.
Don’t let other peoples opinions of you make you feel less about yourself! And if you have a habit of doing this, stop it. It will ruin your life and everything you want to do with your life if you continue to let others influence how you feel about yourself. In turn you may become depressed and unmotivated, and we really don’t want that kind of negative energy up in here! The best way to ignore other people’s opinions is to forgive and forget. Whatever they say about you that’s bad is probably not true, and just a reflection of their own insecurities.
Ah society, how glorious and pleasant. No but seriously, if you’re not getting shamed for one thing you’re probably getting shamed for something else, so it’s best to remember that whatever you’re dealing with you are not alone. Someone else is probably dealing with it too. If it’s really bad maybe consider one-on-one therapy or group therapy, and remember to take care of yourself no matter what. You come first, sis.

It’s okay if during this pandemic you: 🦠Gained weight. 🦠Ate more. 🦠Ate more of certain foods. 🦠Did less exercise. 🦠Reverted to not so great coping mechanisms. We are literally living in a PANDEMIC. We experienced most of our countries being locked down for several months. This is not life as normal. If you’ve gained weight, it’s really really fine. If your body shape or size has changed, that is a-okay. If you ate more because your routine changed and there wasn’t much to do or you were seeking comfort, or whatever reason, it’s absolutely fine. If you have been less active than you usually would be, please don’t feel negatively towards yourself for that. During this pandemic I haven’t worked because of my vulnerabilities. And we didn’t go anywhere for 6 months except to grab coffees at the Costa drive thru when that opened. The most exciting thing for us was the delivery of fresh bread and gooey brownies, and so I ate a lot more bakery products than I normally would – and that’s OKAY. I didn’t have any routine or structure and so my exercise also increased. A lot. And at first it was liberating because my ME/CFS symptoms were almost unnoticeable and I felt free to be active. But the exercise became quite driven and compulsive. Because that’s what happens when you can’t go anywhere or do anything except to exercise and the world is a scary place and you have no structure or routine and it’s the thing you fall back into as a coping mechanism or just because it got a hold of you. And if you reverted back to an unhealthy mechanism then that’s okay and understandable. Don’t beat yourself up for it. Just recognise that it’s time to turn it around and get back on track again. It’s a global pandemic. We are all coping in different ways and doing our best. Take notice of when you’re coping strategies are unhealthy and try to find better ways to cope – but don’t beat yourself up for it. Accept it, and try to change it. And if your body has changed, then roll with it. Your body is doing just fine. #bodypositive #bodyacceptance #selflove #selfcare #bodypositivity #bopo #health #mentalhealth #edrecovery #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #bodyappreciation
If anything listed above is on the list of things you’re worried about right now (gained weight, lost weight, ate more, exercised less, etc.) it’s OKAY and it will pass. It’s good to remember to be grateful for where you are at and what you have, as it all can change in an instant. Be kind to yourself. Normalize the acceptance of your body for what it does rather than how it looks. We’re celebrating ALL types of bodies here!
Let’s slow down and take a time to breathe and practice radical self-love. Ready to dig a little deeper?

There are so many crazy things going on these days and, frankly, it’s not easy to ignore it with a cool head. I don’t mean only COVID-19 and the situation around it, but also other affairs that have been talked about in recent days. It is very important to listen, but at the same time, it is very important to have your own opinion and not be afraid to say it out loud. Remember: Your opinion matters, and your voice is valuable! 🗣💬 #affirmations #positivemindset #positiveaffirmations #afirmações #afirmaçõespositivas #afirmacionespositivas #afirmaciones #leggediattrazione #leydeatraccion #leidaatração #afirmace #pozitivniafirmace #zakonpritazlivosti #lawofattraction #аффирмации #законпритяжения #attraktionslagen #lagenomattraktion #youropinionmatters #iamaffirmations
You matter and are loved. Your emotions are valid and we are here to validate them! It’s okay to be upset, to be hurt, to feel fatigued or angry — these feelings define the whole human experience and make you a complex individual and that’s what’s so amazing about it all. It’s okay to not be okay.
