“I actually hate wearing a bikini – that’s the time I feel the most insecure. I try to avoid putting one on at all costs because it makes me feel extremely uncomfortable and just bad about myself in general.”
Sometimes outside validation does nothing for you when you feel worthless on the inside.
When you grocery shop say “I am choosing this for my body because I love her”
Confident women know that there will be bumps along the road. They know that they will fail, hurt others and be hurt by others. But they also know how to forgive themselves, to have compassion, and to see the lesson or the blessing (sometimes in hindsight) as they journey in this crazy wild thing called life.
My biggest fear was that I would be missing out on something better by committing to one thing. I came to the realization that there will always be someone or something better for me and better than me.
Love is not something a stranger could bring into your life. It is not something to wait to suddenly appear. Love is a path you decided to take.
Get real with yourself and the life you want to live. Be authentic. Stop living the life you thought you’re supposed to live, or someone else’s version of happiness for you.
Love lets us down time and again, and yet we throw in all our cards, gamble all our chips, jump right into the deep end, and then wonder why it doesn’t work the way it’s supposed to.
Keep the faith that everything will be okay. That there will come a day that your smile will no longer have to conceal the monsters inside your head, that you’ll truly be happy and worry free.
You are beautiful and wild, and the right person will love you for all you are. You will never be too much or too little of anything, you will always be the person they’ve been dreaming of.
