Hiya I’m back!!! Just before I get into this post, I thought I’d mention that I recently started a Youtube channel! I upload every Sunday (and maybe have some surprise videos as and when) so chances are, you’ve missed a cheeky upload! Please go and subscribe and show me love because it’s scary business!
As many of you may know, I am HUGE for spreading body positivity and self love over on this blog and all of my other social media platforms. I know that people shouldn’t be at war with themselves. Whilst we’re on this planet for a fair few decades, it’s not that long in theory and we definitely don’t deserve to spend those few years hating every inch of us.
However I know it is incredibly unachievable to go from hating every inch of yourself to adoring the ground you walk on over night. It’s a work in progress and definitely a long one at that. It could take months or years until you can look in the mirror and not shudder at every part you see.
So that’s where I’m at right now.
I’ve been in the recovery journey for quite a few years. I’ve gone from hating myself, to loving myself, to hating myself again, to going to proper recovery and slowly learning to actually love myself. I’m at the latter right now and it definitely isn’t perfect either.
Everyone knows that recovery journeys are an absolute roller-coaster. It’s not one clean cut road to being fine again and that’s something you have to accept.
Currently, there are parts that I love about myself or at least quite like – I don’t dislike my thighs anymore, I like them being thick. I like my arms now after years of never exposing them (thanks tattoo for that explosion in confidence). I can go out in a bare face without worrying again and again about what people may think of a blemish or two.
Of course there are some things I am still working on. My tummy is all wobbly and I’m trying to love the fact that it isn’t flat. I have a roll of fat under my boobs that has been there since I grew said boobs at the start of puberty. Let’s not get started on my boobs.
The moral of this blog post is that; yes I do love my body but there are things I could work on. As does everyone. If you find someone who is 1000000% happy with their body image then lemme know because I’d like to know their tricks.
