I don’t hate my body, I love it. We all should love our bodies. Every insecurity we should embrace, it’s what makes us unique… We can change some, but we have to live with most. If learn to love yourself before you make change, it’ll make things a lot easier.
Recently, I had decided to stop doing heavy leg workouts due to varicose veins on my left calf and right inner thigh. I don’t hate my legs because of it. Sure, it looks unattractive at times, but I’ve learned to live with it. We all have live with something.
If you’ve read this, nice. If you haven’t, that’s fine. But if you want, put a ☑if you have an insecurity. Most likely no one will, but whatever.

Advice to myself: if you are upset, it is okay to be sad. It is okay to lay in bed all day. It is okay to cry on the bathroom floor. You are human. You are raw. You are real. You are vulnerable. Suppressing your emotions will not make them disappear. But do not stay sad for longer than necessary. Do not stand still forever. Make sure you get out of bed and brush your teeth. Take a shower and wash your face. Get to the gym. Nourish your body and drink your water. It’s okay to let yourself swim through your emotions, but never let yourself drown. You are one hell of a human and I am so proud of you - even on your weakest days. #wordstomyself #peptalk #wearecrush #crushfit #Fitness #mentalhealth #health #wellness #life #recovery #baddaysbuildbetterdays
For #BlackHistoryMonth, we highlight @iamhalsey for educating folks on#bipolardisorder#mentalhealth &#bisexuality through her music and#IntersectionalFeminist lens 💖 “I find myself representing, and I say that word apprehensively because I don’t think one person can represent any community of people, a number of communities. I’m open about having bipolar disorder, I’m open about being of mixed-race, I’m open about being #bisexual, and I have this wantingness to talk about it, and for me, it’s about more than being a role model for any specific community. I think it’s about wanting to be a role model that’s comfortable with myself. That’s unafraid of being myself.” 💖
It doesn’t matter if the whole world thinks you’re crazy. Its okay that no one understands you because all that matters is the one person who does. The one person who makes you feel a little less alone in this world. The one person who reminds you that your struggles are real and valid. That it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. So here’s a reminder to let that person know you love them and you are grateful for having them be apart of your life. And if you have the opportunity to hug them- hug them so tight. Jen I wish I could hug you right now. But all I can say is thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done. Thank you for being apart of my life and reminding me that im never alone.
At 21, I felt trapped. This isn’t right, this isn’t fair. At 23, my world was ending. I can’t do this anymore. This isn’t how it’s suppose to be. But at 25, my life has just begun. I feel alive. I am no longer here to shrink myself small. I want to grow my heart. I want to grow my mind. I want to grow my soul. Be You in a world that’s trying to be like everybody else.💞 #recovery #mentalhealth #motivation #happiness #strength
