To be able to love my body completely, I need to learn to love myself fully. To do this I need to know what I love about myself. I’ve grown up very much a people pleaser. Forgoing my own self-love majority of the time.
Up until my mental health decline, I never even thought about self-love as a thing that needed to happen. Now that I know otherwise and I’m less of a people pleaser; I’m now not doing everything for others above myself.
I now realise I’ve got to look after myself and my needs, in order to help others. Even with this realisation, I don’t or haven’t looked within myself of the things I love about myself.
Having a pause to think about this;
I do love that I have the capacity to help others.
I love the motivation to better my mental health.
I love that I’m determined to make something of my life, to find my purpose.
I love the kind heart, the logical and creativity of my brain.
