“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” – Stacey Charter
Do you remember that guy you had a crush on when you were young? Recall the feeling of butterflies in your stomach when he walked by you. Your palms would sweat. Maybe your heart skipped a beat. To you, he was perfect.
Think about your childhood sweetheart. Talking on the phone with him caused your cheeks to become blushed. Every word spoken was just what you needed to hear from the other end. To you, he was perfect.
Now that you’re grown, there is probably someone who you love. You’re wise enough to know he is not perfect. But, you still love him flaws and all. You accept every part of his being.
Life has taught us to love others unconditionally, and to not judge based on imperfections. Amazingly, we find it difficult to reciprocate that lesson to ourselves. We blush at the thought of someone else’s beauty. We allow their words to light up our world. However, we have no problem finding every single flaw and negative thought about ourselves. Every wrong is dragged to depression and every flaw is hidden in anxiety. Trust me. I’m just as guilty of this. That doesn’t mean we can’t start anew.
In fact, we can start fresh TODAY!!! Wake up, show up and glow up! Shift the perception of yourself and embrace every part of you. Every bad experience, every broken relationship. Be happy on purpose; appreciate and give yourself the affection you give so freely to others.
YOU are the bomb!!!
Act like it. Walk like it. Talk like it.
Choose to Crush on YOURSELF and BREATHE freely while doing so. 💚💛
