Loving my body is hard these days.
We all go through hard times & there’s no pride in hiding it or pretending it’s not the case.
So much of what we see on the gram makes it seem like everybody’s life is perfect & if my account ever made you feel that way, here’s to being real.
I don’t always feel good in my skin.
I don’t always feel confident or want to love my body.
I don’t always want to resist nitpicking my insecurities.
I don’t always want to do what I should do because I’m human & I think it’s important to acknowledge that & not lose sight of it just because I made it my mission to share my life on social media in hopes to inspire & help others.
My life isn’t just the workouts, delicious food, supplements, trips, outings with my sis & healthy habits.
It’s also the shitty days, anxiety, racing heart, ED thoughts, uncertainty about where I am today & who I’ll meet along the way.
I’m just being real with you guys & putting it out there that if you’re struggling, you’re not alone.
Everybody’s struggling with something & nobody’s struggle is more worthy, valid or rough than yours. Your struggle is YOURS & it’s completely normal.
A valuable lesson I learned is that repressing it is SO unhealthy & self-destructive.
As hard as it was, facing my struggles is the bravest & most rewarding thing I ever did because every single one taught me something that brought me to TODAY. I’m alive & healthy.
True, some days, I feel more insecure than others, but in the grand scheme of things, I’m so lucky to be alive & for that, I’m grateful.
Let’s stop letting ourselves get so lost in the small things & lets acknowledge how lucky we are to just be!
