Yesterday afternoon I thought about this post and what I wanted to share. I pulled up Pinterest and I was really surprised when I searched “Love Yourself”. There were so many inspiring words and phrases. It really showed me, loving yourself is something everyone deals with. It’s not easy. Between society’s expectations on our bodies and our expectations for ourselves. Loving Yourself is a constant challenge we face. Looking in the mirror, looking at others around us and reading the latest magazines with the beautiful models, we are constantly comparing. What if we just loved ourselves, just the way we are.
I’d like to share a few inspiring words I found in hopes they would also uplift and encourage you to love yourself today and show you that you are not alone. We all face the challenge of loving ourselves and feeling like we are enough. Let these words fill your heart and mind and be a daily reminder to LOVE YOURSELF.
Darling, open your eyes. You are not made up of those words that hurt you or that number on the scale. You are not the expectations that you feel you will never meet. You are made up of nothing more than you.You are a lovely and complex soul. An individually fascinating combination of thoughts, ideas, feelings,emotions. No other is as beautiful as you. Look past the mirror. Look at your soul. Only then will you see yourself as you truly are. Beautiful.
Stop hating yourself for everything you aren’t. Start LOVING YOURSELF for everything you are.
Love Yourself. Without your flaws, you wouldn’t be you.
Your mission: Be so busy loving yourself and your life that you have no time for hate, regret or fear.
CAUTION!! Object in mirror may appear distorted due to socially constructed ideas of beauty.
Love yourself. Accept yourself. Forgive yourself and be good to yourself. Because without you, the rest of us are without a source of many wonderful things.
I hope these words encourage you as much as they did me. You’re not alone, that’s why we write about loving yourself and the issues we face everyday too. Happy Tuesday, Friends!
