Bad Bitch Mantra 1: Love Yourself:
You will find that this is one of the most important keys to being a bad bitch or even just a happy individual. I will bring up this chief principal throughout Bad Bitch Affirmations as it is an essential building block to being a bad bitch. Love. Your. Damn. Self. Period. Too many women do not take the time to pour into themselves, know themselves, and truly love themselves, flaws and all.
A Bad Bitch is in tune with herself, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is so important that we spend time alone with our inner most vulnerable selves and really explore what makes you uniquely and beautifully you.
LETS DIVE A LITTLE DEEPER
Meditate on a few things
Let’s try something. Spend some time thinking about what makes you happy. This can be anything like that Starbucks drink that puts a smile on your face, or that TV show that you cant wait to watch. Think about those things and think about what it is about those things that brings you joy. After you’ve done that and then dig in further. Go a little deeper.
What are you passionate about? Spend time getting to know what excites you in life.
What do you dream about? Do you have goals you want to accomplish.
What could you spend all day talking about?
What are your strengths? What can you offer the world? What special point of view can you give? Your distinct perspective is so valuable.
What do people like about you? More importantly, what do you like about yourself?
What do you dislike, want to change about yourself? What do you want to see, hear, or feel less of? More of?
These questions should help with self-awareness. Self-awareness, even with the negative things, gives so much power and leverage to a Bad Bitch. Learn to accept and love the things that make you tick, your needs, desires, habits, shortcomings, failings, and strengths. This understanding of yourself will, in turn, allow you to understand others.
Next Step- Treat yourself how you would treat someone else you loved.
How do you talk to yourself? Is it with love and kindness, or is it with disdain and disappointment?
Do you forgive yourself for any short comings and motivate yourself to keep going/do better, or do you tear yourself down with any and every failure?
RuPaul said it best:
“If you don’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”
The same effort you spend building relationships with others, co-workers, friends, and family, you need to put into building with yourself. You would not blow up on someone if they made an honest mistake, would you? You would not speak disrespectfully about a friend to someone else, would you? Its important that you remember this when speaking to yourself and about yourself to others. It is not attractive, shows low self love, and can make others uncomfortable when you are unable to take compliments gracefully, for example, because you do not love yourself or know your worth.
If you’re afraid or not willing to dive deep as you feel you may not like what you discover. Don’t worry, its understandable to be hesitant. Spend time talking with others. It can be beneficial to speak with others about what your working on and you will get a better picture of yourself through their eyes. Let us not be the last one to know something about ourselves.
Additionally, it is so important to be brave enough to be open, patient enough to take the time to learn, and honest enough with yourself to go deep and accept certain things as truth. Consider a commitment to fixing anything you dont like with baby steps.
Know yourself, love yourself.
