As much as we may try to celebrate self-love and be body positive, even the most confident person can have moments where they feel self-conscious. Maybe you’re going through a bout where you feel self-conscious about everything from your body, to your relationship, to your skill levels, to your personality. If that’s the case, I’m sorry to hear it.
Know that you are amazing and there’s nothing wrong with any part of you. You’re one-of-a-kind and that’s a brilliant thing. Trust me. I know that you might not believe me right now, but hopefully you will see my points someday.
