LOVE AND SELF-DOUBT
Hello beautiful and confident Highlites. How is everyone? And how are those resolutions or goals going? I hope great!
The other day, I was chatting with my niece. She decided to try a new hairstyle. She told me that she really liked her new ‘do but her feelings were hurt because when she got home her daughters were laughing about it because they didn’t like it. So her self confidence took a dive because she thought she was cute and she liked it.
I immediately went into giving my speech on confidence. I told her to not let them or anybody else make her feel that she doesn’t have the confident to wear what she likes and what makes her happy. I said “Rock it girl!”
Highlites, we are always letting someone that doesn’t approve of something in OUR life bring self-doubt in our minds.
One day, I met my friend for lunch. When she got there she told me that she would have been there, but she had changed several times because what she was gonna wear at first, her daughter said that the jeans looked LIKE Mom jeans and that they were outdated.
I said, “OK, that’s her opinion, did you like the way you looked in them?” She said “I did!” What you like is your happiness. I’m that I do what I want girl.
Highlites, don’t get me wrong, I haven’t always been dripping in confidence and having so much self-love.
When I was in high school, I hated the way I looked, the shape of my body, because my body shape has always been straight up, no curves. My best friend’s body shape was out of sight, it was shaped like an hourglass. And I wanted that.
But I learned to love and accept myself for who I was with the help of my husband, supporting me, believing in me, complementing me. He calls me beautiful like that’s my name. And I started seeing what he saw.
I knew that I wanted to raise children that was loaded with self love and confident but it had to start with me, I had to show them what it looked like. So that meant me showing them that I’m ME!
I had to let them see that I didn’t care what people thought about me, what they said about me because as a matter of fact it was none of my business.
I love me! So Highlites: When that self-doubt creeps in or you’ve given up on self-love, remember this is your life and no one has the right to butt into your happiness. Accept you and love you. Positive vibes only!
Thanks for stopping by. Make it a great day!
