Listen, there is NOTHING wrong with having self love. There’s nothing wrong with having confidence and taking pride in yourself. Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise.
I’ve struggled with insecurities. So many of them. I will never lie and say otherwise. Confidence has never been a strength of mine.
I’m a social butterfly that dreads meeting new people and going to new places because of low self-esteem and social anxiety.
I always feared that people would see me the way I see myself in the mirror.
But, I’m putting this mentality behind me now. I’m checking my insecurities at the door.
I am who I am. I struggle with my weight. I have dark circles under my eyes. I don’t like my smile. But, I am so much more than that.
I’m a wife. A friend. A daughter. A sister. A believer. A photographer. A lover of all people. These qualities far outweigh my own insecurities.
I’m loving me. I’m loving me for all I am, and all I have to offer. And, you love you for all you have to offer, too. We’ll get through our insecurities together.
It’s time to start looking in the mirror and seeing past our flaws. It’s time to start seeing everything that makes us unique and beautiful. It’s time to embracing ourselves.
I’m preaching to myself here, too. It’s time to take my own advice.
