Body Insecurities- Mood
Have you ever looked the mirror and been like, ‘Wooow, The Lord created!!!’ Well, that’s me most of these days. I am always in the mood of me!! I am learning to fall in love with myself deeper and deeper every day. Of course, I don’t wake up daily thinking that I am God’s gift to earth (Which I am☺☺), but there are days that I have no space for my considerably big tummy, other times I can’t stand my boobs, while others just inspire me to research ways to ass bigger. I like to call these days moods. I have great ass moods. Other times I have a pancake ass mood. Some days I have beautiful East African moods, while others, I have gigantic forehead moods. These days my body insecurities just pop out of nowhere. I don’t know how my eyes choose to switch up on me like this😂😂😂😂 , but it happens. Like sometimes, I just wake up, and I have no idea why I feel so insecure about my body. I can now hype myself into the dope bitch mood, but those days are still there.
Having these days where you feel like you are less doesn’t mean that you have fallen. It just that you are human, and it’s okay to have bad days. It’s okay to feel unattractive sometimes. It’s okay to have body insecurities sometimes. Sit in the feeling and understand where it is coming from. These feelings often have a root cause from somewhere. Sometimes it is your childhood, or a bad relationship, or a bully. Figure where this voice is coming from, then sit with yourself and whisper the truth: you are beautiful the way you are. Self-love is not about always being high on yourself; it is about still being there for yourself even when you feel like it doesn’t make sense or that you don’t want to. It is about giving yourself grace when you feel less, listening to yourself when you hurt, and understanding why you feel the way you feel. I am learning that one way to beat body insecurities is learning to love your sexy as it is. Accepting that you are not sexy to everyone but their taste doesn’t nullify you.
I like to think that my body is a lover of seasons, so then I have days that I can’t stop staring myself on mirrors because damn, the Lord is genius. Other times I can’t stop staring at myself at mirrors because I can’t stop seeing what needs to be fixed about me. On these days, after figuring the root cause of my insecurities, I just whisper that I am beautiful and sexy as I treat myself to something sweet because I am made of sugar and everything nice and sweet🌚🌚🌚🌚.
Do you have ever have moods and how do you deal with them?
With Loooooove and Sunshine 💖🌞💖🌞, Jackie
