Love Yourself So You Don’t Have To Rely On Someone Else To Do It For You

Loving yourself is challenging and at times it feels impossible but it’s not. You are capable of loving yourself even on the days you want to break every mirror. You are capable of loving yourself on the days you might binge eat or indulge when you didn’t want to. You are capable of loving yourself in a bathing suit or anything else you want to wear.

You are capable of loving yourself because you deserve your own love – you deserve the love you keep giving to everyone else.

You are allowed to be exactly who you are and no one, especially yourself, should make you feel uncomfortable in your skin because you deserve to love yourself as much as everyone else on this earth should love themselves. You are allowed to take up space and not feel ashamed of who you are.

Love knows no barriers and you are allowed to love yourself wholeheartedly, and you should because you are strong, smart and brave. You are so much more than you allow yourself to take credit for. There is nothing wrong with loving yourself.

Self-love isn’t always easy, I get that. The low days are hard, I won’t try to deny that but the only good thing about the low days is that every single person, even the people you think have it all together, have experienced them. No one is exempt from feeling low, no one is exempt from having off days or experiencing bad self-esteem days. No one is exempt from knowing what it feels like to feel uncomfortable in their own body.
