Body Series

This series hopes to explore issues that women face when it comes to insecurities about their bodies and societal pressures. (I was going to write just my experience then I realized that that’s just one body type) I hope this style makes sense to y’all. Feel free to go back and read other articles for this series.

I

I wonder if it is a coincidence that a word as powerful as ‘I’ looks like number 1. Today I will let you know the power of ‘I am’ in your body. How many times have you sat down and your stomach rolled and you looked down and said, ‘I hate my stomach. I am fat.’? How many times have you let someone tell you what is unattractive about you and what is wrong with your body? How many times have you been the one to make fun of your body before even anyone said anything because you innately felt that they were thinking it? My favorite thing to make fun of about myself is my forehead, and until recently, I didn’t realize that I might be innately insecure about it. Now I make only empowering jokes like ‘My big forehead is where my wisdom resides🤣🤣🤣🤣.’

I don’t know how I came into this space where I felt that I was the most beautiful woman I could be. Maybe it’s because I was always told that I was pretty as a kid. I had so much belief that I was beautiful that even at some point I was really getting bullied in school, the jokes about my body didn’t hurt as those about my intelligence. In fact, I didn’t care that I didn’t have straight teeth when everyone in class kept saying that my teeth were too big for my small mouth. I was too proud that I had teeth like my dad’s to care about their jokes. I have maintained this self-belief all through even when a boy I recently rejected said that my boobs are sagging and my ass is flat (The irony is that he hadn’t actually seen it until he couldn’t have me). I just laughed it off because I had spent too much time naked in front of the mirror staring at myself and admiring myself to care that that’s what he saw. The power of ‘I am’ allows you to see your body for what it is, sexy, beautiful, and desirable.

What is this power of ‘I am’ that shuts out the world allows you to be the sexiest self that you are? It’s simply the power of ‘I am.’ You say the most beautiful things to your body. Talk to your body parts and tell them that they are worthy, desirable, and beautiful daily. Never let anyone tell you otherwise. My friends often say I like to compliment myself too much, but if I don’t, who will? Why should I wait for anyone to tell me that I am the most beautiful woman I am supposed to be. Never let anyone tell you to be humble. People use the word ‘Humble’ when they feel uncomfortable around your confidence. I am not saying that you become vain and rude. I am saying that you know your worth and don’t let anyone tell you that you need to dim your light to accommodate their insecurities. It’s okay to let go of people who benefit from your insecurities. Shine away babe💖💖💖

You can start with these affirmations here then begin to personalize them as you continue. Be the sexiest version of yourself🌞🌞🌞🌞

    Lol shots fired at me when I read the “I am fat” remark, I always say that to myself in the mirror but not with disgust but with more motivation to continue my regimen. I learned to love myself but to also make fun of myself 🤣. But to have that confidence within yourself is so liberating, once you achieve that and when someone criticize you, it won’t get to you anymore. ☺️

      True, achieving ultimate self love is very important.

    You should always compliment yourself!! Just because you are aware of your best qualities doesn’t mean you’re not humble- it just means you know your self worth.

    Saying affirming words to yourself does work a lot of magic! Telling myself I am beautiful makes my days a little brighter.
    Good reminder.

      Yes, I have downloaded affirmations and recorded some too. I listen to them when I feel low about myself.
