Be more you, then wait.
I promise more people will love you than ever before.
It took me a while to learn how to be me, especially since I spent most of my life trying to be anyone BUT me.
I basically had a lot of unlearning to do.
And it took years!
But I think I’m finally in a place where I can say I’m me in every single possible situation in my life – whether it’s family, friends, strangers, whether it’s a high anxiety, high stress situation or not.
And you know what? I’ve never been more loved and I’ve never felt more loved.
You know why? Because by deciding to be me, it left the people in my life a choice to get with the programme or to move on. A lot left my life, but the right people stayed.
People always say that when it comes to friends “quality not quantity” and sometimes when you discover body positivity, you also discover the meaning of that quote even if you don’t want to.
When you ask for more respect for your body, not everyone will give it.
When you ask for more respect for your life choices, not everyone will say yes.
When you ask for genuine love and not criticism disguised as love, not everyone will know how.
Losing those people will hurt but it doesn’t mean you made the wrong choice ?
Being yourself means you are more loved, not by the most people, but by the right people. #ScarredNotScared
