Over the past year I have witnessed a very close friend feel so low and unworthy that they simply want to give up with everything life has to offer them. This has broken my heart to see and I have found myself working as hard as I can to pick them back up and show them that THEY ARE enough.
No one should feel like they are not good enough, not worthy of the beautiful things in the world, they are not beautiful in every way, shape or form or simply that they cannot go on any more. True happiness I believe, starts off by a person learning to love them-self. If a person is unable to do this then they will never truely be happy.
I see and hear of people taking their own lives way too often and It pains me to hear of these stories as every life is so precious. It pains me because these people did not realise just how important and beautiful they are.
I want you all to know that YOU ARE enough, YOU ARE beautiful and you better not forget it! Love yourself. Look in the mirror each morning and tell yourself that you are beautiful. Learn to love your flaws for what they are as imperfections really are beauty, they are what make you, you and make each and every one of us unique. Set yourself a reminder in your phone every day telling yourself that you are beautiful, that you are enough. I personally do this myself and I even text my friend telling them that they are just to ensure they don’t forget.
Be kind to yourselves. Take time out of your week for yourself. Wether it be pampering yourself; running and nice hot bubble bath and relaxing in the tub, followed by a face mask and mani/pedi. Or wether it’s relaxing in bed reading your favourite book, listening to your favourite music dancing around the house. Sitting by the sea listening to the ocean. Whatever it is that makes you happy and relaxed do it!
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Remember you are only human. If you can’t meet a deadline you have personally set yourself, don’t sweat it. You can only do as much as you can and it is important to realise that. Turn negative thoughts into positive ones! If you are thinking you are not pretty or good enough. Tell yourself that YOU ARE.
For everyone out there be generous and kind. Tell someone they are beautiful, they are amazing. Give people your time, encourage people, smile at them. Do a favour for someone, big or small, its the action that counts. Spread nothing but love and eventually people will learn to love themselves. They will see themselves for the beautiful, important humans they are.
I want you all to know, that if you are ever feeling low, unhappy, feeling like you cannot cope. I am here for you and am more than happy for you to email me for a chat. I’m a good listener.
