Everyone tells you to “love yourself”, but no one tells you about the war you have will have to fight. Loving yourself is a choice. It’s a daily choice to look into the mirror with love, kindness and acceptance instead of fear and hate. The world will try to trip you up constantly, telling you that happiness only exists at a certain size or weight. It doesn’t. Your happiness and your health depend on each other, but no one can see those things just by looking at you. No one knows where you are in your journey, how far you’ve come or how far you’re going. Loving yourself isn’t a destination. It is a road you try to navigate your entire life. And wherever you are on that road, your compass only works when you can look at yourself in the mirror and see that your body is a good body. It is a worthy body. There is no number that will make you feel or believe that. The love you give yourself now is the only love you will have at the end of the road.
P.S. People who love their bodies, their lives, their relationships, don’t hate on others’. If you know love and happiness, that’s what you put out in the world. The only thing hateful comments tell you is how much that person is hurting. #bootyrevolution #effyourbeautystandards #honormycurves
