I was reading today a news article about this “tagging” system that has been going on for so long on our own appearance which has made me think about the fact that since I was around 12 I always felt I’m not happy with my body and I’ve been all the time setting up goals to look like others. From 16 I’ve been on a constant diet, on and off, but with no major super model changes, because without a doubt we all relate to those examples, magazines , TV stars, singers, actors, that unicorn, fairy land of perfect bodies without any effort, or help, or massages, or treatments, or supplements, or personal chefs, or trainers or… you get the point.
I really need to start identifying myself as my own body, mind and soul. For the past 2 years I can definitely say I’ve been working on my mind and soul side of things, been through a really crazy ride, actually it was more like a whole theme park with front tickets to panic attacks, anxiety, depression, insomnia and all the other extras that comes with this.
I feel like this has become lately a reality not just for me but for the whole world, no matter the age, country, social position, bank account status we are all in this and trust me, we are all equals! I have overcome most of my fears, with patience, with love, with help and now I realize this made me more aware than ever of my own life, feelings and thoughts. I got far and I’m proud of that.
Now I need to start loving my body, embrace it, accept it, take care of it and I’m sure all the rest will follow.
Love yourself more! Today…
