It’s okay to love yourself. It’s okay to look in the mirror and tell yourself you’re beautiful. Even when it feels like the biggest lie you’ve ever told.
Because let me tell you, from my own experience, it is completely impossible to truly love anything or anyone if you have nothing but hatred for your own body, mind and spirit.
God made you perfect. God makes no mistakes. All the things that you hate about yourself are simply ideas cast onto you from other people. You do not need to change for anyone. You do not need to conform to what you think you need to be to be perfect.
Perfect is a lie. Uniqueness is perfection. Be yourself. Always.
Dress your body out of respect to yourself. Don’t put on clothes for attention, wear what makes you comfortable. And by comfortable I don’t mean hide behind your clothes or your hair or your makeup. Just be you.
When you look at your reflection what are your first thoughts? If they aren’t positive you need to start making them positive and ignore those voices that say otherwise.
Everyone has an opinion, but only you know what’s best for you. It’s okay to put your feelings before other people’s feelings. It’s okay to say no. It’s okay to be you.
You never need anyone else’s approval to be who God made you to be.
