I know what it's like to be judged based on the size of my waist.
I know what it's like to be deemed worthy or attractive based on my body.
I know what it's like to be loved or not based on the way my aesthetics are.
I know what its like to feel rejected because of the amount of fat on me.
I know what it's like to be squeezed, looked at differently, compared to, and questioned.
I know what it's like to be disgusting from the look of me.
I know what it's like to fear the clothing in the closet or the store.
I know what it's like to see a body which doesn't represent my true soul.
I know what it's like to feel like the world was crumbling on top of me through my brain and around my heart.
I know what it's like to be so down in the dumps and in so much pain physically or mentally that the solution seems to be one which is only final.
I know what it's like, I've been there, and the scary thing?
Most of the times it was me, forming these beliefs, having these thoughts, being disgusted or hateful or judgmental over myself.
And if it wasn't me, it was usually an assumption of mine that others were feeling this way based on my beliefs and stories and feelings.
And if it wasn't me and it wasn't a story I was telling myself, then it was actually another human being. But that never seemed to hurt as much than the hate which seemed to stem from within.
I know what it's like.
And the best thing I ever did? Was step up and love myself through action.
So if you're looking for a way out.
You're looking for a solution.
You're looking for a breakthrough or a shift.
You're looking for something to light you up and feel right.
Start with love.
Act with love.
End with love.
Continue with love.
Self-love is not just a matter of powerful affirmations. It's action.
Self-loathe is the same way.
Like all things in life, actions speak louder than words.
It's go time.
