Fall in Love with Your Body
How to Change a Negative Self-Image
Breathe in, breathe out.
How do you feel when you look at yourself in the mirror? Do you like what you see? Are you in love with all the imperfections and reveling in what makes you different, in what makes you, you? The body you are in is purely, solely, and amazingly your own. You only have this one body so embrace it, love it, and demand that others love it just the way it is.
“To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.” ~ Alan Cohen
If there are things you dislike you can change those things (making sure you’re doing it because you want to and not for any other outside reason), or you must accept it. Bad Bitches embrace and love their bodies, imperfections and all.
Listen, be kind to yourself. Sometimes we are the ones who are hardest n ourselves. We are our toughest critics and the most judgmental. That needs to stop, it doesn’t serve us, and it does not allow us to grow and be our best selves.
Negative self-talk reveals weaknesses and insecurities and is, quite frankly, unattractive.
No one is perfect, if they are – they didn’t do it by themselves. ultimately the people who have something negative to say to you don’t matter. those that love you will encourage you to be happy in the skin you’re in.
“Beauty shouldn’t be about changing yourself to achieve an ideal or be more socially acceptable. Real beauty, the interesting, truly pleasing kind, is about honoring the beauty within you and without you. It’s about knowing that someone else’s definition of pretty has no hold over you.” ~ Golda Poretsky
Be comfortable with yourself. So you have scars, stretch marks, dimples, pimples, hair in unsightly places, a mole in the middle of your forehead? Love that shit… All of it. if you want to change it – do it for you and no one else. At the same time to make sure there are no outside influences to your decisions. People can be cruel and can cause you to feel a way when there really is nothing wrong with you at all. Have you had kids? Your body isn’t what it used to be? You has battle scars. You are victorious and wear them like a badge of honor. Surgery? Mastectomy? Love yourself. Wear your crop tops, your bikinis, that dress that your not sure about, your skinny jeans.
Wear it all and love it.
If you died tomorrow and didn’t live boldly in your only body, I’m sure you would regret doing the simple things that could have brought happiness to your life.
My body is far from perfect but I have to love it. It’s the only one I have. I love my body in every sense of the word and I love me. I take the time to celebrate myself. I am a goddess in my own right with all my lumps and bumps, pimples and dimples, stretch marks, scars, dark skin, hair. Its all on my and I love me. and who ever I’m with will love me too, because I demand it.
Be proud of who you are and what you look like. Loving yourself allows you to be fee to love others and also opens access point to allow them to truly love you. Being vulnerable and open to others is one of the most attractive things a person can do. This causes people to be drawn to you, privileged that you are able to be so open and defenseless with them.
There are so many things to have stress about and to take this nothing and turn it to a source of strength would be such a benefit. I could influence I person to change their perception of their body, then I would be so happy. You all are beautiful, just the way you are. Be free, fearless, and happy.
