Learning to love yourself for all of you is an adventure

Learning to love yourself for all of you is an adventure

Learning to love yourself for all of you is an adventure. The good and the bad.
The world has taught us to not accept our true selves. To not accept the not so perfect parts of ourselves.


We expect ourselves to be perfect, because we are told we are supposed to be perfect.
We are expected to not have dark circles under our eyes. If we do we have to cover them up.
We are expected to not have wrinkles because we shouldn't look old.
We are expected to not have cellulite and if we do well we sure as hell go on a diet.
We are expected to not have stretch marks because they aren't pretty.
We are expected...
We are expected...
We are expected...

Those stretch marks are your tiger stripes.
That cellulite shows that you are alive.
Those wrinkles are your smile lines.
Those dark circles show that you love and care for others more than yourself.

Embrace life. Know that what we are told is not good enough is merely a matter of opinion. Know that everything has a positive side. Everything can be looked at in a different light. .
Accept yourself for who you are. You are enough my friend. You are beautiful, strong, courageous, and worthy.
