I was recently told I am a narcissist by someone I care about. Sad my heart is, for many years I hated
myself inside+out. I was told I was fat, ugly and dumb for at least 15
years of my life as a young girl. I cried myself to sleep in a battle I fought all by
Decades later, the pain still exists. With the help of my husband, therapy+very good friends, I began
to love and take of myself. Finally, I can look at myself+see beauty
that I never saw on the outside, but always felt on the inside.
than 1/2 my life I hid behind the camera. My Instagram photos are for my own heart+mind. They remind me that I am so much
more than I thought. I am not that ugly girl I was convinced I
was. I never was.
Whether your nose is huge, you're missing teeth, you're 100 pounds overweight, your hair is falling out or your face is covered in acne, you are beautiful+can celebrate yourself in any way you choose. Feeling good, liking the way you look+posting your photo doesn't always mean you need admiration or need
strangers to validate how pretty you are. It could be just as simple as
being proud of all the hard work you did to feel beautiful... I empower+encourage anyone who feels ugly on the outside-to take a photo of themselves when
they feel good or are happy+post it so when
you're feeling bad, you can go to one place+see all the times you felt
good. You deserve to feel beautiful+happy.
For those of you with young kids at home, verbal abuse can happen out of sight from siblings, kids at school, almost anywhere. Kids are horrible to kids. Those younger years require the foundation to build self-confidence. Help them feel love, learn how to take care of their bodies+hearts. You can make a difference by not minimizing their feelings, especially when it takes so much courage to come to you in the 1st place💞. #perceptioniseverything #narcissist #ugly #sad #anxiety #depression #youarenotalone #youarenotugly #noshame #verbalabuse #loveyourselfinsideandout #nojudgement #flawed #beautiful
