10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS


1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.

2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.

3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.

4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.

5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.

6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.

7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.

8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.

9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.

10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.

Don’t ask yourself, “Is this normal?” Instead, ask yourself:

Is this healthy?

Is this good for me?

[Photoset of Sailor Moon winking. Texts read: Made a phone call, Ordered the food you really wanted,  Asked a question in class, Cooked yourself a good meal, Got out of bed today, Calmed yourself down from a panic attack, Didn’t overwork yourself, Practiced self-care.]

Sometimes we get so focused on the big things that it’s easy to forget our small accomplishments, so I made the Sailor Moon Award! Celebrate the little accomplishments you make throughout the day, you deserve it!

Feel free to print these out and use them if you want, or make your own!

i’m a strong believer that not everything you do needs an explanation. if you want a tattoo, get one. if you rather stay home that night, it’s okay to miss that party. don’t forget that you’re living for yourself. you don’t owe anyone an explanation for your choices or preferences.

If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.

Stop beating yourself up. You are a work in progress - which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

[!!!] How to properly tag trigger warnings

thisisnotlatino:

Not Okay:

  • tw butts
  • tw: butts
  • trigger warning butts
  • trigger warning: butts

Loved:

  • butts tw
  • butts /////////
  • butts 324982093493
  • BUTTS
  • butts

blacklist only reads the first word!! so tagging “tw butts” is really useless!! and that person who sees a post that triggers them then has to aggressively scroll all the way past it and block the post (if they can)!! Otherwise they have to wait a bit before the post gets buried in their dash!!! not cool!! please be cool and put the actual thing FIRST. We will love you.

Loving your body isn’t conceited

Feeling proud of yourself doesn’t make you a narcissist

Giving yourself credit for something won’t make you lose motivation to keep bettering yourself

Caring about your own happiness isn’t shallow

Putting your recovery first isn’t selfish

Things to remember when you want to say “no,” assert yourself, and ask for what you want

thelesbianborderline:

  1. If I say “no” to someone and they get angry, this does not mean I should have said “yes.”
  2. Saying “no” does not make me selfish.
  3. Although I want to please the people I care about, I do not have to please them all the time.
  4. It is okay to want or need something from someone else. 
  5. My wants and needs are just as important as those of anyone else.
  6. I have the right to assert myself, even if I may inconvenience others.
