So you are sat there in the tub, not feeling to great about yourself, about your self worth or self esteem. It has been knocked down by someone on social media.
Whilst nosing through your feed you notice that certain people are getting more likes on their pictures and you may think well i put in just as much effort in mine and i don’t seem to get half as much engagement. Feels like a kick in the teeth for all your hard work.
Please don’t sit there in a bad mood. It really isn’t the end of the world, give yourself 5 minutes of angry time and take these tips from me and use them each time you feel yourself not feeling worth it.
If you take my advice you wont ever get a down day again when it comes to scrolling through social media.
Apart from the few days of sunny sunshine here are some of my favourite bits.
You know one of those songs that come on the radio or is recommended on a Spotify playlist and you think I really like this song. Well this one by Lissa Lo called All I need is one of those. I’ve got the chorus as my ringtone as I don’t like your bog standard ones 🙈
These have always been a fave but particularly this month. Needed a pick me up and they were there for me
We worry so much about things that have happened and realistically we can’t do anything about so this quote says it all.
As I’m still healing from having my bladder removed I’ve not really ventured very far but I did manage one day with mum to go down town in the wheelchair and spend some cash.
I got a few toiletries in boots – make up can wait, then went and got some pjs in Peacocks and some undies. On our way home there is a St Margarets Hospice charity shop so we decided to have a nosey. I got about 6 or 7 items which I’ll show you once the weather’s warmer. I always like to give my unwanted clothes to them as that was the hospice my brother was at.
Little victories this month 😊
Oooo and I managed some chips from the chippy since my appetite has been a bit pants this was a real treat.
I want you to really digest what I’m about to say.
We all have had those days when we really can’t stand to look at ourselves in the mirror, we don’t feel pretty in the slightest.
Do you know what?
We are human and having a down day is very normal.
But I want you to really think about the person that you are inside and out.
I want you to love all that you are, flaws and all. There’s not another you out there.
Take compliments on board, I know when I give someone a compliment I truly mean it and don’t just go round saying it for fun.
Have daily mantras that you can either say out loud or to yourself (for example yes I can) click here for a list of ones you can use
Give yourself a pep talk on the bad days and remind yourself you are good enough and you are worth it.
When you ooze self confidence you will feel a sense of happiness in life and your wellbeing will totally alter. Going from self conscious to self confidence will take time but you will feel the benefits of it.
Don’t ever doubt your worth, and don’t let anybody tell you you are anything less than fabulous.
In Minnie Ripertons words as I have titled this blog post- loving you is easy cos you’re beautiful.
