Hello lovely humans, get ready for this caption, it’s a long one. So, I have always struggled with body image and being confident in how I look physically. It wasn’t until I met with a counsellor last year & she asked me what I think about myself and I responded with “I can’t say that out loud” that it it hit me. If I can’t say it I shouldn’t think it. Since then, I have focused on being confident in who I am as a person and once I started doing that, I slowly noticed my view of my physical self, start to change. Trust me, it wasn’t easy to get to a place where I didn’t completely hate what I saw in the mirror and I still have those days where I feel self-conscious. To be honest, I don’t think I’ll ever fully be able to escape having those off days but that is okay because 90% of time I am confident and not overly critical of how I look. However, the other day me and my friend went to a local park to take some photos and that is where the above photo came from. I didn’t want to post it because in that photo I felt like my body wasn’t ‘good enough’ to be shown. But I have chosen to post it here because I want to be real with all of you. This is me. I am not perfect nor will I ever be & that is okay. I love myself (something I never thought I’d ever say) and that is enough. My body & I have had a complicated relationship over the years but it is that relationship that has allowed me to come to this realization. Self-love is never a final destination. It is a continuous journey. Although I am at a place where I feel better and am more confident in myself, I still have to work at that every day by holding myself accountable for what I am thinking. I want this post to sit as a reminder that self-love is possible and that ALL of you are beautiful humans. Keep pushing through and if you are struggling with body image try and tell yourself one nice thing about YOU per day. It can be hard but overtime the more you do it, the easier it’ll become. Another thing I did that helped was I followed REAL people on Instagram. I now have a feed that is filled with body positivity and kindness. These are small things you can do and they pay off in the long run. Thanks for reading💕
Hold my hand. A Time past, and a time has passed, and am standing in the fading keepsakes of what remains in the wheel of my recollections. Like a pendulum, memories come and others go; delightful on this end, now decrepit as they slide yonder! It’s a beginning, I fear, of an approaching end. I felt where it all began, without knowing what. How the ticking hours now remain as the routine of my misty day. Coping with the waves of uncertainty as I drift into the winds of despair; conscious to a hymn of a long ago, only to remember not the stranger I once knew. I know am floating further into a death whose path is paved by depression and withdrawal, and dismantled by an illness without a cure. I fear for the ones I love, this, until they begin to grieve for the one who blanks them out. Yes, this is who I am, Alzheimer and Dementia, and all you need to know, is I once was you; the one who longed for a hand of kindness and from which love was born. Now all I need is a touch of kindness, an act that just might sway me, if only for a moment, back into the world I once knew.
