How many times have you doubted yourself? How many times have you told yourself you aren’t good enough for something or even someone? How many times have you started something and then given up because it was too much work or would take too long to accomplish?
We live in a society where social media is constantly telling us who we should be, how we should look, whats acceptable and whats not. Quite frankly I can’t stand it. But yet, I still find myself constantly comparing my life to complete strangers on the internet. I have been there though, so ashamed of myself for eating too much. So disgusted with how I look. So jealous of “fitness models”. So upset that I wasn’t as successful as I thought I should be. I have had to completely change my thought process in order to finally accept myself as I am and know that I’m a badass!!
Our minds will believe everything we feed it. So quit with the negative self talk, the self hatred, the comparisons, and start telling yourself how amazing you are, how worthy, how beautiful and capable you are!!
A couple weeks ago I had a complete breakdown, crying about how “fat” I have gotten (comparing myself to stage ready). I beat myself up all weekend over it. Thought about slipping back into the grind, the extremes, the messed up eating habits that promise results. Then I thought to myself, “why on Earth would you go back to that Tiffany? Why put yourself through misery and potentially cause yet another eating disorder in your life?” I have talked in a previous post about the battle I faced with an eating disorder that still haunts me when I feel fluffy. This life is so short and I promise once you let go of diets and the mentality that you should look or be like someone else, YOU WILL BE FREE!! I always catch myself talking to myself and giving pep talks to myself haha. If I am gonna talk the talk, I’ve gotta walk the walk right? Those “models” we all see have insecurities too, that girl who is extremely successful has issues, those perfect relationships we see on social media, well that just makes me laugh because there is NO SUCH THING! Nobody wants to show their problems or admit their faults and insecurities, so just trust that nobody is perfect and not everyone has their shit together. Everyone’s journey is different and it all makes us who we are. You are unique, and that is your superpower!
I speak about personal experiences and battles I have dealt with in this blog because I KNOW I am not the only one that deals with them and if I can help just one person, I have successfully completed my mission.
“Helping one person may not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.”
Read this Book!! I promise it will shed a different light on the way you think!!
