So I know so many people who struggle with self-doubt, not thinking they're good enough, depression from hating themselves. Anything you could imagine. I used to be that way and it was the hardest point in my life. I may not be as old as adults but I still had those struggles. I will be making these regularly to help YOU. Anything you need. I want to make YOU happy, confident, and make you feel like your best self.

    Everyone has encountered someone who brings their spirits down or tells them that they aren't enough. The person might make you feel bad about yourself by maybe making fun of your body or things that you do. Sometimes, when that person(s) goes out of their way to make you feel like a piece of trash there is probably something going on with them that's bothering them, but that still doesn't give them the right to make you feel the way you felt or are feeling. Ignore those types of people because YOU ARE ENOUGH. You are good enough I promise you. It doesn't matter what anyone else tells you! You are beautiful, you really are. You are an amazing person. If anyone tells you otherwise that's on them. People won't ever stop comparing themselves to others, that's just how we are nowadays. What you can do is catch yourself in the process and either talk yourself into thinking differently or shift your focus, so you feel differently. Don't beat yourself up over it. Instead, ask yourself these questions. What is in MY control to change? Am I willing to make the changes? If not, then do what you can to let go and move on, because sitting there, beating YOURSELF up is not going to do any good to you I can promise you this right now. You want to surround yourself with positive vibes. Whether that is people who lift your spirits or happy confidence-building music. You do what makes YOURSELF happy, not anyone else. Before you go and make anyone else happy, YOU have to be happy with yourself. Try to live by YOUR highest values. What is most important to YOU, not anyone else. When you constantly worry about what others think. you are judging yourself against their values and not your own, discover what is most important to you, and have the courage to stay on that path. A few more things before we go. 1.Remember that your mind, can be a very convincing LIAR Thoughts are just thoughts, and it’s unhealthy and exhausting to give so much power to the negative ones. 2. There is more right than it is wrong with you. 3. You can’t hate your way into loving yourself.
    Simple as that, if you keep telling yourself that "oh I suck, or oh man why does nobody like me." Telling yourself those things won't get you anywhere. It may get annoying to hear how simple it is but it's the truth. The only way to achieve self-love is to love yourself—regardless of who you are and where you stand, and even if you know you want to change.
    You are enough just as you are. And self-love will be a little bit easier every time you remind yourself of that.

    That's all for this one. I hope this helped! Please comment so I can know what your thoughts are and if I need to change anything. If you would like a little one-on-one conversation, at the top of the page there should be my name in orange letters. If you click on that it should give you the option to email me and please feel free to! That's all! Keep being yourselves and expect more of this coming next week! Love you all.

Omg this helped so much. Thank you, Shay! I have been struggling with self love for a while now, and it's really hard. I'm getting better at defeating those dark thoughts, but it's still a struggle. Another thing that has helped me, for anyone else who is having a hard time, is (if you're a christian) when those thoughts crop up, think of it as the Devil whispering in your ear trying to deceive you, and just say the name of Jesus over and over till they go away, or yelling (mentally, I'm not insane) "get outta here, devil!" And reminding myself who I am in Christ. Hope that helps, if not, please let me know bc I'll probably be saying all that to people in person as well and don't want to sound like a crazy person 😂.
