I was up scrolling in the night for inspiration …like I do 🤷🏾♀️ and I came across THIS
OH YOU KNOW I AM HERE FOR THIS HUNTY! YASSSSS! This is a challenge I’m going to fully participate in and promote across all my social media platforms. Self love is important! I know for myself I haven’t been the best at self love. It’s only been within the last two years and the birth of my youngest daughter that I understood with our self care you can not care for your family. You have to care and love yourself so you can care for and love everything around you. here’s day let’s talk about..
My biggest is I lack confidence. I may seem very confident online but in real life I’m 4’10 or 4’11 120lbs on a good day and my first instinct was to hide because my thoughts told me “You’re not pretty enough to talk those people and they don’t care what you have to say..besides you sound like a mouse on helium, no one human needs to be subjected to that.” I lived my life like that. Literally staring at people and making friends in my mind because I lacked the confidence to just say hello….. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY FRIENDS I MISSED OUT ON! I lacked so much confidence in the past that I wouldn’t even reach out to my own friends because I didn’t “want to bug them, they’re busy they don’t want to hear about me.” Well that’s how loose friendships, when you don’t reach out and nurture out of fear and self doubt you miss out opportunities to build genuine friendships. Loving yourself is huge. I have been on a journey to love myself about 4 years now. I had gone through so many relationships and I wanted to be loved so badly and couldn’t figure out “why am I unloveable! I just want someone to love me for me!” Problem is I didn’t love me. I didn’t know me, or love me, so there was no way in the world I was going to have a healthy and loving relationship if I wasn’t healthy and in love with myself. I’ve worked hard on loving me part..I’ve thrived!!! I’m working on my confidence now..just simply stepping up and saying “Hello, I’m Shayla nice to meet you” my goal this month is improve myself confidence to the point I’m making friends at the grocery store and following through with those friendships.
I’m so excited by this find it must be fate. I’ve been dealing about with manifestation on my spiritual journey. One of the greatest keys to success is to love..love what you do, love who you are.
This is going to be a great challenge I can feel it.
What’s your biggest struggle with loving yourself? Comment below I’d love to hear from you.
