As women, we are so quick to voice our flaws and dislikes about our bodies. I think it’s great to be honest about what we don’t like about ourselves, it means we recognize we are not perfect, and we are just like everyone else. I also think it is equally important to voice what we like about ourselves. Why don’t we talk about how we love our hair, our hips, or our booty? These aren’t things we necessarily need to keep to ourselves. I am not implying we gloat about ourselves every time we have an opportunity. Of course, it’s okay to talk about our flaws and bond with other women through them, but don’t forget to talk about the things you like about yourself and listen to the other person as well. This is how we can begin to have honest and more positive conversations.
As women, we all want to feel loved, but, it all starts with loving ourselves first. So, it’s important to be affirmative with ourselves. We need to tell ourselves from the moment we get up to the moment we go to sleep what we like about ourselves and what we want to improve. For example, physically, I work out often to improve my butt, lower abs, and arms. Mentally, I read to work on my confidence and on becoming a better listener. These are some of the things I feel like I need to work on, but I also tell myself I know I am emotionally strong, I recognize how healthy I am, and I continuously tell myself how beautiful I am on the inside and out. I want to ask you to do the same thing and I know you will begin to see an improvement in your attitude and way of thinking.
You are in control of how you view yourself, so let it be beautiful.
