Comparison is real. It is everywhere. We start to feel insecure when we flip through magazines, scroll social media, and even when we get together with friends. We pick ourselves apart with statements like:
“My butt is too big.” “My boobs are too small.” “My nose needs to be fixed.” “My lips are too thin.” “I am not a size 2.” “I could never wear that.”
Can I let you in on a secret? We ALL feel insecure at some point. Even the most beautiful person you know. But we have to learn to love ourselves or we will always get caught up in comparison and self-doubt.
You are beautiful. You are valued. You are loved.
Loving ourselves is just like loving another person; it takes a lot of effort and practice. I want to give you some ways that will teach you to love yourself:
Accept your flaws. Believe it or not you can accept those! We all have them. You are your worst critic and most times the parts of you that you pick apart are the parts that people love about you. The way you laugh, the way your eye squints when you smile, your extra big feet… Accept it.
Say positive statements to yourself. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Would you speak to a friend and call her ugly or fat or “too much?” Of course not! You need to love yourself like you would your best friend. Talk to yourself like you would to her. Give yourself a compliment!
Do something that scares you. Wait, what? Yes, do something that gets your out of your comfort zone, but that allows you to grow. For example, go schedule yourself a Boudoir session. Did you know you can have fun and feel sexy at these sessions? They are all about EMBRACING yourself. ALL of yourself. If you wish to share them with your partner for life, then do it! If not, girl do it for yourself.
I would love to have the opportunity to work with you!
Get out there and love yourself,
