One of the most important things I promote on Seriously Bo is body positivity. This is a topic that I believe in with my whole entire being. It’s so important to have body positivity in your life, because our bodies and our beings are the first thing that we turn to hate when we are in a bad mental state.
Loving yourself is the first step to living a life you enjoy.
Learning to Love Yourself – a post by The Story Goes On blog
Now I know first hand loving yourself isn’t easy and I can also say I haven’t quite conquered this myself, In saying this I work on it every day and it’s a big part of my therapy.
A big part of loving yourself is having confidence, feeling great about what you are doing and loving yourself, now I might not love all of me, but I believe we all need to love our selves on the inside first, let me explain.
A wonderful and amazing human (aka my therapist and savior) said to me to think of all the things that make you, you, your personality, your characteristics, for example, I am a very caring, kind and thoughtful person and in my opinion, I have so many other amazing qualities too while she was saying this to me I didn’t believe it how could I be an amazing person if I look the way I do, Its all about how you view your self worth and I believe we can all change the way we think about ourselves it just may take some time.
Then slowly we can start loving ourselves on the outside, If every single one of us looks at ourselves in the mirror each day and says one thing about ourselves that we like for me today It would be I can see myself losing weight and all the hard work I’ve been doing is paying off now I know what you might think? but that isn’t loving yourself completely I believe you should love yourself as a whole but if you feel like you can change one thing to make you feel better about yourself, do It! It’s your body and you are allowed to modify it in any way you please.
If you don’t love you, how can you properly live? How can you love another person? Everyone needs to feel comfortable in their own skin and be happy I promise you when you start to love yourself you can love life so much more, Be yourself and don’t listen to what anyone else says because It is your life and no one else’s.
