A few months ago I shared THIS post about body image & how I learned to love my body. Self love is something I am passionate about because our bodies are so beautiful. It amazes me when I think about how our bodies can heal themselves, how they can fight diseases & how they can produce other humans. LIKE WHAT? No one deserves to hate themselves because of the way they look. Why do we do this to ourselves?
I've started to think of who I am on the inside (spiritually, emotionally, morals, etc.) separately than the physical aspects of myself (my hair, face, body, style, etc.) Breaking it down like this helps me appreciate my strengths, more than focusing on what I am not, or what I do not have. You are not defined by what you look like. You are a divine child of God & that is where your worth stems from. Whenever thoughts from Satan creep in about your looks or your worth, replace those thoughts with LIGHT. Think about all your strengths, talents, and the good works you perform. Go serve someone. Go read the scriptures or listen to a devotional. I am not perfect at this yet but I am getting better at it & I'm so proud of myself for starting to overcome that toxic mental block.
Your opinion will never change beauty. Beauty is in everything & everyone. It's up to you whether you choose to see it.
