I love you body like you are my best friend. This sounds silly yet its true. It really doesn’t have to be complicated with us. We can love one another. I’m ready to listen to you, trust you and respect you.
Your body is perfect. You served me well. You gave me my babies and I gave you a hard time. Yet i want to be best friends with you. I want a truce. I forgive you for making me feel like a frump. For all the silly times i wasted on my flaws that really never were there. It took me a while to see things from my inside out but I’m here now to make peace with you.
I’ll treat you right, I’ll stick around through anything!
Every moment i spent wasted on worrying how i look i could i spent all that time on grooming you and making you number one priority. Instead i failed you and gave you a hard time. I talked negative to you, i told you i hate you and i told you i never wanted to see you again. How mean was that. Loving your body means not talking down to your body. No one should ever have to catch you in the act of humiliating your body. Would you ever say those hurtful comments or make judgements like that to your bestie, mum, or daughter. Love you body for who you are now not who you want to be and your life will reward you with gifts of joy, happiness and learning to love your body takes time. Time is of the essence.
Strive to be your best friend
Yes, it is possible to have unconditional love for your body you just need to see the true beauty within your body. Our body is one beautiful gift given to us to be a good friend to us. Its up to us to take responsibility and look after our bodies. We feed you, we cloth you, you wash you, we care for you, we love you but then we hate you. Enough. This is a complete surprise to you maybe but its not rocket science. You are not a science experiment and nor should treat yourself with anything but respect and self-love.
I declare i love you body. You are my best friend and you are worthy of my attention. Paying greater attention to the person who is there when i need you. I cry with you, i hold you, i care for you, i will be there with you till the end. Redefine the self-sabotaging lies you tell yourself into affirming truths that will increase self-respect, self-love, and self-compassion.
Show some respect. How can we imagine we’ll be able to respect our bodies unless we also respect others?Let’s stop judging each others bodies and mums bodies that just, don’t bounce back. Please have some compassion for others and gratitude for yourself. This helps reinforce the hashtag i use #ownyourbeauty and #confidenceisthenewpretty and
become your kind of pretty self. Its not selfish its unselfie.
So it’s up to us to block out the non-sense and stand up to what we believe in. Women if it was up to me i would like us to shift our ways we see ourselves. When you look at a photo of yourself try not to cinch or say anything bad at all. It may be hard but its time to slow down our everyday thoughts about our looks and have a good look at our heart from the inside beauty we all hold. Focus on healthy living, happier living, doing something new, trying something new, applying for something different, share in laughter with friends or have a hug. Whatever you do – do it for your best friend. I love you. Its the best way to live life with a best friend and make peace with it.
Make friends with your body and have someone working with you not against you.
