Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #69
Today we will talk about body positivity. Body positivity focuses on loving yourself what you are right now. It is important for us to understand that we are of value regardless of your weight in pounds. People mistake body positivity with promoting obesity and hating it to be allowing people to be confident of their bodies as they are. I once listened to a TED talk where are woman was talking about body issues and self image issues. But she overcame all of that just by reiterating to herself that she is beautiful. I was watching it on YouTube. I found this so empowering. But then I scrolled down the comments section in YouTube and there were people fat shaming and then there was this guy who commented “You are not allowed to feel beautiful, look yourself in thee mirror you fat c***” and I was like “What the ….”. Where is the god damn respect for a human being, leave alone male or female. I was about to comment back but then thought to myself that this person is allowed to voice his opinion and it should not be our problem because we are not who others think we are, we are what we think about ourselves. No people who like who they are are not lazy, not full of excuses, they should not lose weight because others feel they should. I can spend 6 days a week in the gym but still have a healthy toned body and not chiseled one.
Come back tomorrow on more inspiration on body positivity.
