Fortunate Enough To Love Yourself

Someone, somewhere needed to see this after a long ass day, week, month, year, decade…whatever it is. This message isn’t for everybody, only the sexy people. If you’re fortunate to be these things count your blessings. And most of all love yourself, know your value and ditch anyone who brings you down, disrespects, or abuses you. You welcome.

What Self Love Actually Is

Self love is essential. You’re happy with who you are until being bombarded with your imperfections, and other peoples criticisms. When it’s constructive take it, but there are toxic people who will use it to belittle you. For power, for control. Your self-love acts as a barrier of protection, for what’s acceptable treatment towards you and what’s not. Otherwise you’re pouring from an empty cup, to fulfill someone else’s needs.

Loving ones self is being preached from soap boxes, because few people possess this quality. One crucial to your physical and mental health. When I didn’t love myself I loathed being alone, I nit-picked everything about myself, I went out of my way to do for others who wouldn’t do for me. Accepting who I am made happiness a consistent state of being, removing a void I attempted to fill with substance abuse.

The biggest struggle was forgiving myself, especially for things that weren’t my fault and retraining negative thinking. Good things would happen for me, because I’m worthy of them. Which slice of the self-love pie do you need to work on this week? Via: Lyfchngr

Six Lessons From Someone’s Twenties

I didn’t write this, but every lesson hits. The sooner you learn it the more fulfilled your life will be. Although I must admit I never cared about being liked, most people as I’ve proven, aren’t the brightest which I find irritating. Spare me your company if it’s lackluster please. Which lesson resonates with you the most? What can you add? I would say: set boundaries no matter how long you’ve known someone and don’t dim your light to fit in, even if it mean’s outgrowing others. Via: Mental Health Maniac

Beating Yourself Up

Sent this to my friend yesterday with the message “This is you.” She concurred. No matter how wonderful most people find her, she constantly beats herself up. Never good enough for herself, using others as a comparison to diss herself, refusing to acknowledge how far she’s come, magnifying her flaws every other second. As someone who loves her it breaks my heart. She is her own abuser and it’s hard to watch.

Listen I’ve been there, you come into this world thinking it’s magic. As you grow from childhood to adulthood the in between is filled with people clipping your wings, telling you magic isn’t real, that you aren’t hot shit, that you should hate yourself as much as they hate themselves. Shifting back into a positive mindset is the hardest thing I have ever done, it requires a fortitude gained only by hardships and healing, but it’s worth it. Once you have it no one can take it from you. Plus practice makes perfect, you get better at being positive the more you do it. Does someone you know need to hear this? Are you your own abuser? Kick your ass to the curb, look in the mirror and scream I REUBUKE THEE ME or you can do what she said. Afterwards name one thing you fancy about yourself.
