I said these words to myself for most of my life.  My self hate was  learned from bullies at school, fashion magazines, TV and the internet.

Luckily as I reached out of my comfort zone and sought help for depression, I found positive messages and was able to cultivate a sense of self-respect.

I slowly escaped from the idea that I needed makeup or a perfect body to be considered beautiful.

I chose to change my thoughts from seeing myself as a failure, to a risk taker.

It took time, but I finally love myself. Despite the occasional bad day, I refuse to return to a world of self-hate.

There is so much emphasis on looking “ideal” and being “perfect”.  Let’s start a revolution of self-love and self-acceptance.

 When I think negative thoughts about my self I can choose to change it up. 

I am beautiful because…

I love my…

My value is based on my…

Are You Tired of Feeling Bad About Yourself and Your Body? Show Love for Yourself This January in the 2015 Self-Love Writing Challenge

Self-love is important because deep inside YOU truly know what is best for you, how you need to feel good, what you need and why you deserve to be the best person you can be. Life is challenging and along the way others will be wonderful guides for you you, but why rely solely on others when you can be your own guide. I really support this idea of self-love. It’s one way I was able to overcome my depression and start living without fear of not being good enough.
