Have you ever found yourself scrolling though social media, come across a picture of someone who has everything you want and desire in life ? A wave of envy suddenly hits you and you find yourself to the person in the picture. I mean we all experience a bit of jealousy from time to time and sometimes it can make you feel a type of way about yourself. If you find yourself in this predicament, don’t worry it’s normal. While the feel itself may sucks, sometimes it can bring out the best in you.
When looking at these photos online or just analyzing someone in general you may find yourself thinking…
“UGH! I wish I had her body”
“If only my hair was like that.”
“I wish my life was perfect.”
Truth is, nobody is perfect which is why we should just learn to love and accept ourselves. Do know that there is absolutely nothing wrong with you and you are amazing just the way you are. Those celebrities and models that we idolize deal with the same imperfections that we do. They obsess over the same bumps, lumps, pimple and frumps that we do, the only difference is that just so happen to be famous. Today I come to you all with a few quotes on what it means to love yourself. Embrace all of what you have been dealt with and make the best of it!
“You yourself, as much as anybody else in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.“
-Ralph Waldo Henderson
Hey! You there! Guess what?! You are loved! Now go give yourself a hug and go put a smile on your face.
Whether self love or the feeling of being loved by someone else, everyone deserves to be loved. Being in tune with yourself is one of the best feelings in the world! When you learn to love yourself, not only does it boost confidence but it can also do wonders for your overall well being. Nothing can tear you tear you down because as the saying goes, “love prevails over all!”.
“Confidence is not they will like me, Confidence is I’ll be fine if they won’t.”
If someone doesn’t like you, oh well that’s their loss. I mean you like you right? Before you answer that, I’ll go ahead and answer for you. OF COURSE YOU DO! You don’t need to feel validated in order to have confidence.Those that seek validation tend to be the most insecure with themselves. Stop looking to others to help build you up because that is something that you need to learn to do on your own. Confidence is something that comes from deep within and is they key to any and everything that you do on this earth. Without it, life would be rather difficult to navigate and you could miss out many on opportunities that are designed to have bring success to your life.
“To be yourself in a world that is trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Be yourself and stop trying to be someone else. We were all put here on this earth with a different mission in mind. Stay on your own path in order get to where you need to go in life and don’t let anything steer you astray. We live in a world where we get told how to live our lives on a daily basis. According to society (*ahem* social media) the only way to prosper is to look a certain way and have a certain lifestyle. Live life the way you want to live it and stop worrying about what others think. Be that one unique star in the dark sky that twinkles bright and make your mark in this world.
“Learn to love yourself because that’s who you will be spending rest of your life with“
You are stuck with yourself until the day you die and if you don’t like it, I honestly don’t know what else to tell you but to get used to it. There’s no escaping because I mean 1.) that’s illogical and 2.) Where are you going to go? We only have 1 life and 1 body, what you choose to do with it is up to you however it is a must to practice the are of “self love”. Live your best life and learn to love yourself flaws and all. You’re basically married to yourself except when times get rough you can’t divorce yourself. Those rough patches that you experience are what help build character and make you love yourself even more. Learn to take the good with the bad because at the end of the day you are truly all you have.

Here’s a link to her post: https://femmallure.com/10-effective-ways-to-build-up-your-self-worth-and-self-esteem/
Hi! I’m Alicia. I was a single teen mom, born in poverty (like going days without food type poverty). I’m a suicide and childhood abuse survivor. I struggled with depression and low self-esteem for most of my life and anxiety since my mid-twenties. However, through mindset changes, self-love, self-care, personal development, and healing, I now know what true happiness and self-acceptance feels like. I’ve been able to develop self-confidence, kill self-doubt and effectively manage anxiety and depression. I use my story and my experiences to teach women, going through the same darkness, how they too can achieve this for themselves. I teach women steps they can use to take back control of their lives and begin crafting the life they truly deserve. If you are ready to begin your journey, join me so you can start really Growing and Glowing!
