“Happiness is not a body type.”

 

YOU'LL NEVER HATE YOURSELF INTO LOVING YOURSELF. Trust me, I've tried. I've hated myself into diets, I've hated myself into binging, I've hated myself into weight loss, I've nearly hated myself into an early grave, 15 years old and almost starved to death. None of it took the hate away, it only helped it to grow. I had so many dreams of the body that would FINALLY make me happy. I would've traded anything for it because I knew that once I got there, then my life would really start. But here's the truth: there is no magic pill, potion or diet plan that will turn self hate into self love. And the biggest secret that diet culture doesn't want you to know? Happiness is not a body type. Fulfillment isn't dropping dress sizes. Self love isn't found in starvation and LIFE ISN'T FOR LIVING 10 POUNDS FROM NOW! Life is already happening, and you're already good enough to live it in the body you have right now. The next time you look in the mirror, ask yourself if self hate is really working. Ask yourself if you're willing to spend your whole life at war with your body, trying to hate it into something else. And if you've had enough, like I know we all have, then it's time to try self love. The same self love that you deserved all along. 💜💙💚🌈🌞
