Re-Learning Self-Love

I think the most important tip that I have learned was “Self-Love sometimes has to be re-learned.”

I have been working really hard on this one. Teaching myself to love myself again was very hard in the beginning.

During my eating disorder treatment they taught me skills to replace my disordered behaviors, but I always felt that I was lacking something.

I picked up the book Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works and learned that I needed to re-learn how to love me, and that it had to be real. I couldn’t just play into the idea. I had to really embrace the fact that I needed to love myself again to become free from my eating disorder.

Re-learning how to love yourself is very hard when you have that voice that tells you that you are not “good enough” or “pretty enough.” One day, I was flipping through Self-Love Diet: The Only Diet That Works, and I came across this: “Self-love doesn’t come from a number on the scale, it comes from within ourselves.”  This sentenced changed everything for me.  It confirmed that I am more than a number on a scale. It confirmed that I was capable of love myself. It confirmed that I was brave enough to roar back at the concept that I wasn’t good enough to change it into I AM GOOD ENOUGH. 

WILL YOU CONTINUE TO PRACTICE SELF-LOVE DAILY? AND CONTINUE WITH ME TO FURTHER THE SELF-LOVE REVOLUTION!! 

REMEMBER YOU ARE AWESOME,
