To all you beautiful people:
-Stop doubting your self worth.
-Stop telling yourself you can't.
-Stop letting someone else's opinion define you.
-Start loving yourself.
-Start telling yourself you can and you WILL!
-Start realizing you are enough.
Being a people pleaser, for years I let other peoples' opinions of me define my value. I allowed my self limiting beliefs define who I was. I told myself I wasn't good enough, I had nothing to offer, and that I couldn't do this or do that...so that is exactly what I did...NOTHING!
It wasn't until I felt like I was completely hopeless that I realized I was tired of feeling that way. I was tired of watching other people live life. I was tired of feel stuck. I wanted to be the hero in my own life. I wanted to save me.
It is CRAZY how horrible we talk to ourselves. Think about the negative things you tell yourself. Would you ever allow that to fly to someone you care about? Would you stand by and let someone say things to people you LOVE like that? Would you say things like that to anyone? Would you tell them they are fat, or no good, or not worthy, or that they aren't capable? Would you tell them to quit trying because they will NEVER do it?
You would encourage and support them. You would tell them to dream and know that anything is possible. You want them to know how much they are truly loved and valued and you would fight anyone who tries to tell them differently. Right? That is exactly what you need to do for yourself.
Do me a favor.. write down 3 positive affirmations to tell yourself each day; once when you first wake up and once before you go to bed each day. Spend just a few minutes each day telling yourself these things. But the clincher here is that you need to say them and BELIEVE THEM. You have to truly try to believe them. It might be hard at first, but it will get easier.
To be honest, this whole "love yourself" thing was a little uncomfortable for me at first. I would tell myself positive things I didn't really "feel" yet. But over time, something magical happened...I started to BELIEVE! And belief in yourself is pretty incredible. It can change your mindset, your attitude, your day. It can change your life.
My hope is that all you beautiful people can learn to love yourself. As much as your loved ones do.
Share this with a loved one who needs a reminder of how special they are.
BE KIND WITH HOW YOU SPEAK TO YOURSELF...BECAUSE, YOU ARE LISTENING.
