You have far better things to be doing than worrying about the dimples on your thighs, the stretch marks on your belly, or the acne scars on your face.
And if anyone is making you feel badly about any of these things, chances are they're extremely uncomfortable with themselves.
People who are happy with themselves usually aren't spending their time breaking down others.
I'll say it again: People who are happy with themselves usually aren't spending their time breaking down others. ---------------------------------------------
The first few times I was told that I "look like a man" or that I was "too muscular" it got to me. More than I want to admit. If they caught me at the right time, I'd start a comment war. Which sometimes was satisfying but usually wasn't. My hands would shake, and deep down, a part of me was defeated, because who likes being told they look disgusting and that they'll never find a man to love them?
I even had it happen in person. It messed me up for awhile. Someone I considered close to me chose their words poorly and changed my perception of them for the rest of the relationship. --------------------------------------------------------------------
But over time I've come to pity these people. The people whose brains default to judging a person's appearance straight away; no thought involved. And for a person perceive people that way is sad. I don't wish that type of insecurity and lack of self love on anyone. -------------------------------------------------------------------
So before you take anything to heart, ask yourself, is this person a miserable person? Chances are...yes. And even better? It has absolutely NOTHING to do with you.❤ ------------------------------------------------

Two of my favorite things: the gym & candy 😍😍
Mutamos. Constantemente estamos cambiando. Nos transformamos físicamente pero también transformamos nuestra identidad. Cambiamos? Crecemos. Aprendemos. Cada persona tiene su tiempo para conocerse. Algunes pasan toda su vida intentando descubrir quiénes son. Otres, por x o y, lo hacen antes. La mayoría de nosotres necesitó de alguien más para conocerse, un par de ojos extra para ver eso que nuestra perspectiva no nos dejaba ver. Hay gente que se abre más fácil a recibir esa ayuda. Hay otres, que se resisten un poco más. Es éste el momento dónde más tenemos que apelar a la tolerancia. Porque es fácil cultivar la paciencia con la flor que florece de un día para el otro, y creer que lo hizo tan eficientemente porque somos grandes floristas. A veces es momento de replantearse algunas cosas, y pensar: ¿por qué ponemos tanto énfasis en enseñar y concientizar a les de afuera, mientras que a les de adentro les exigimos 20 veces más?. Estamos eligiendo el camino fácil. Si realmente queremos generar un cambio, seamos más sororxs, pero de verdad, no como el personaje que pretendemos vender. Si realmente queremos una sociedad mejor, seamos inteligentes, porque las verdaderas batallas son las que se ganan con estrategia y diplomacia, no con violencia, y mucho menos con soberbia. De otra forma, nos merecemos la sociedad en la que vivimos. Una sociedad tan egoísta como nosotres mismes.

Take my shoes and walk a mile...Of course somethin' you can't do 🔥
There’s an unexpected side effect that happened when I decided to accept myself for who I am (good/bad/weird parts combined) rather than attempting to change myself in order to be liked or to please someone else.
There’s this overwhelming sense of freedom, and happiness. There’s strength in knowing yourself, there’s opportunity in understanding what you want and don’t want in your life.
The lessons that got me here were painful, and hard, but as with anything that happens in life - if you gained something from it then you’ve got to be grateful. So I’m grateful for the hard, I’m grateful for the hurt, I’m grateful for the disappointments... because the growth, change, and happiness that I’ve been able to have from these is absolutely worth it.
What are you grateful for? ❤️
I’ve really gotta step up my upper body workouts at the gym... my arms are NOODLES. Actually, I guess that’s okay because I love noodles 🙈
Approach me with respect, and nothing will go wrong...That's the only one thing you should know 💯
Today we celebrated my moms birthday. I checked out the basket of bread they brought to the table, and realistically I felt like I could have eaten every roll, cornbread and muffin in the basket but, I didn’t.
I didn’t eat them because they were bad- I didn’t eat them because it wasn’t going to be worth it later and it was not going to add to the experience of celebrating my momma today.
I chose my entree, eggs benedict, and I ate as much as I wanted and needed to feel satisfied but not stuffed *huge food freedom victory for me*
Then, the long awaited dessert; birthday cake.
Not just any birthday cake, but pumpkin spice with pumpkin cream cheese frosting birthday cake. Tastes like fall and my wedding day.
Having a piece of cake, 2 pieces or 5 bites was worth it for me to try today.
I didn’t feel shameful. I didn’t and do not feel guilty and I’m proud.
I know to some, it’s just a piece of cake. But for me, it’s so much more than that.
It’s okay to eat the cake and it’s also okay to not eat the cake. Just make it a mindful decision and in moments that it is worth it, I swear it even tastes better. 🧡🍰🎃

🌈 does anyone else get shocked when they see pics of themselves? #whosedat
”I NEVER thought I would EVER be here, standing in my skivvies, sharing my unretouched curves with all of you!! The reason I’m sharing this photo is to talk to you about my secret to staying comfortable while keeping my curves smooth and shaped: @yummieofficial
high waisted Ultralight underwear! The Ultralight Collection is unlike any other undergarment you’ve worn before and I’m sad I didn’t discover them sooner. I’m also wearing their WIRELESS (you read that right) racerback bra which is incredibly supportive, but with ultimate comfort.” 💕💕 @lolo_russell #yummietothecore
Self love is such an important and hard journey. ✖️
It’s not all smiles and happy days. ✖️ It’s retraining your brain to think in new ways. To fight against what we’ve all been trained to believe about ourselves. ✖️ Because there’s an entire beauty industry that exists on the basis of people (mostly women) hating something about themselves in order to sell us products. ✖️ Brands use body shaming and comparison to sell us stuff. It’s so subtle and ingrained in our culture most of the time we don’t even notice it or recognize it. ✖️ I love following @danasuchow
because they are so smart, and deliver such helpful tools on how to be aware of the world around you. #MediaLiteracy
✖️ so the next time you have a negative body thought remember it’s okay. ❤️ That’s the thought the world has been conditioning you to think and you are so brave for stepping outside of the norm to recognize you are worthy of more! ❤️
✖️ You are worthy of love, of hope, of peace and to be treated with kindness and respect.
