Anonymous asked: I need advice .... How do I stop hating myself?
Ah man, one of the hardest things to do. I feel you hon, I really do. I’m gonna give you the typical fitspo answer to everything and say eat right and exercise because this will keep your hormones and brain chemicals regulated. If you’re treating your body right, it will treat you right back, and if you’re getting all the vitamins and shit that you need, your functioning will be in check! That means that hopefully your moods will be better ;)
But another answer is that I found that it helped me a lot to focus on the kind of life that I have. I suppose I figured that it was just better to like…love life instead of hate myself, yaknow? Because there’s sO MUCH to love about life and I DO love life and I was wasting this incredible gift by hating myself. I’m the only self I have. I get one shot. If I don’t like something, then I better bust my ass to change it. But I was so consumed with trying to change and be who I wanted and be someone I didn’t hate that I forgot to take a step back and just…breathe. It was so hard for me to breathe and I realized I’d forgotten how to. Honestly, honey, aren’t you just tired of hating yourself? Isn’t it exhausting? It’s just…I dunno, I guess it became easier and better to think of how great life is instead of focusing on hating myself, yaknow?
