8 THINGS TO TELL YOURSELF ON A LOW BODY IMAGE DAY

8 Things To Tell Yourself On A Low Body Image Day..

I can hand on heart say that nowadays I’m body confident more than I’m not and boy does that feel good. I’ve surrounded myself with wonderful friends who make me feel like I’m beautiful no matter my size & I’ve also learnt that the most important things in life have absolutely NOTHING to do with the way you look, the size of your jeans or how much cake you consumed last night. (Usually at least half am I right or am I right)?

However even I have days where I hate what I see in the mirror. Whether that be because I’ve seen a photo of myself at THE.WORST.ANGLE.EVER or I’ve compared myself to Susie, Sally & Sarah.

So I decided instead of crying for the next 4 hours, delving into a large bar of Milka Wholenut chocolate and then contemplating going on some ridiculous diet to lose ridiculous weight to fit society’s ridiculous ideals.. I’m going to write a helpful post for my readers instead (and to help me too, OBVS)

1. It’s okay to feel down sometimes. All your life society has told you that you’re not good enough, so it takes time to undo everything you’ve been made to believe.

2. You’re more than this. You’re more than these destructive thoughts. You’re more than hateful comments and remarks. You are more than you look. You will be remembered for more than your outer exterior. It’s the soul that counts.

3. You’re beautiful. No matter what your mind tells you or another person tells you. You are beautiful.

4. Be a bit kinder to yourself babes. You’re not a murderer or a bad person. You’re actually alrite!

5. You’re not alone. Text someone who cares about you and lean on them for a while. You’d do the same for them right?

6. You’re a fucking bad ass boss bitch. (Apply your favourite lipstick and put on one of your extra sassy outfits)

7. Everyone’s rooting for you. I’m even rooting for you. You’re a breath of fresh air to this world.

8. ‘YOU IS KIND, YOU IS SMART, YOU IS IMPORTANT’. No matter what you weigh, no matter what you look like, no matter what the size of your jeans are.

Its better to be soul food than eye candy (new fave saying that I live by)

If all of the above still haven’t made you feel any better, have a cry & take a nap. We’re in this together.

    Oh, how I love your posts! Thank you and you're so right! It's so easy for us to just think negatively, but we need tostart thinking positively. post 6 and 7 are my favourite; "You is a bad ass boss bitch", "You is smart, you is kind, you is important."

    BEST AND GENUINE SPELL CASTER ONLINE TO HELP SAVE BROKEN MARRIAGE AND BROKEN RELATIONSHIP
    Am Jerry miler, I live in London, and I’m happily married with a lovely wife and three children. I had a very big problem with my wife few months ago, to the extent that she left the house with our kids to her parents' for almost 5 months. All efforts to bring them back proved abortive. Friends and Family were all in concern and my very close mate gave me an advice concerning a spell caster, and he quote; “There’s someone who can handle your situation, he’s always ready and able to do anything related to spiritual matters, I searched for a spell caster on the internet, his advert was everywhere, i found his number and called him on his mobile number +2347052958531. Although I never believed in spell casting, but he convinced me and I had no choice than to follow his advice, because I never dream of losing my lovely wife and I was desperate. So I did all what he told me to do and i did. He told me that I’ll get my wife back in two days after the spell is completed. I was skeptical. He casted the spell for me and i was so anxious waiting to see or hear from her, until the second day when my wife called and said she was coming HOME…..It was like a joke to me!!! That’s how I got my family back through spiritual means and our relationship is now stronger than ever. One of the price I was asked to pay was to tell it to people around me that problems like this, can always be solved by Dr Ewan. And this is his email too if you wish to contact him and solve your problem too covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com , my advice to you out there is to visit this great Dr Ewan and tell him your problems. He's capable of handling anything spiritual and spell casting. Thanks a lot for saving my marriage. covenantsolutiontemple@gmail.com. You can also add him up on watsapp on +2349057353987, you can also call him on his mobile number +2347052958531

    Getting ex boyfriend back after a breakup,I’m extremely happy that will are living together again. Am Maria 21yr from England, my boyfriend of a 4yr just broke up with me and am 30 weeks pregnant.I have cried my self to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again.Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes ,my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time.Generally he is a very nice guy ,he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along.He is right we’ve been arguing during the pregnancy a lot .After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change.I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with.I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn’t have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe.He texts me now and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy,he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy.i was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my bf came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my bf are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity. If you have any problem contact Dr.Unity now and i guarantee you that he will help you.Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com ,you can also call him or add him on whats-app: +2348071622464.
