Being yourself is one of the biggest fears we face as beings. We long for the acceptance of others and many of us feel as though being ourselves just wont do. We have these assumptions that pretending to be what we assume others want to see will make others love us, like us, and accept us.
The fact of the matter is, in the midst of that, we become LOST in the process, but why? Because we aren't being true to ourselves. We have to learn that acceptance from self is far greater than the acceptance of others. When you love and accept who you are, how others see you, or whether they accept you or not no longer matters.
Protect your mind, block out the myths and opinions of others, stay true to who you are, If there is something about yourself you don't like, its okay, recognize the issue, fix it if necessary, but be sure its not life threatening or damaging to your body or your health. If it can't be fixed, embrace it, love it, look up positive influences who look like you, share similar stories like you, and allow them to encourage you. Seek a mentor that will feed nothing but positivity into your mind and empower you. There is nothing more beautiful, more powerful, more attractive, and more sexy than a woman who's unafraid, to be herself.
Peace & Love,
