“True self-care is not bath salts and chocolate cake, it’s making the choice to build a life you don’t need to escape from.” : Brianna Wiest
When people think about self-care, the first things that come to mind are face masks and hot baths.
When you think about it, self-care can be getting your mind together and finding you. As Brianna Wiest mentioned in her quote, “self-care is building a life you do not need to escape from” in translation, if you focus on yourself and be who you are, you will never have to worry about hating the life that you built for yourself.
“How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you.”: Rupi Kaur
They say, “you have to love yourself before you love someone else” that sorta ties into this quote by Rupi Kaur. Self-respect, self-confidence, and self-love are immense when being fond of yourself as a young lady.
Self-respect can be difficult if you weren’t taught to treat yourself a certain way, but that is ok.
When you think about self-respect, think about how you would treat others. Use how you treat others as a guide for how you will treat yourself.
In terms of self-confidence, that has to come from within yourself. Your therapist, parents, and friends can tell you how amazing you are, but you can never believe that until you feel it in your heart.
Self-love is realizing that you are good all by yourself. Another person is just the icing on your cake. A cake is still attractive and delicious without icing.
“If you are always trying to be normal, you will never know how amazing you can be.”: Dr. Maya Angelou
First, there is no such thing as being normal, but there is such a thing as being unique.
You may see other girls and think that they look better than you. You may wish that you look like them. You may have a desire to be just like them. You may believe that you are abnormal or not normal.
The first question you need to ask yourself is, why exactly do you feel this way about yourself? What do they have that you don’t? Let’s speak facts here. The definition of normal is conforming to the standard or common type.
Unique means to be distinguishable or the only one of its kind. So would you rather be the same color as the other eggs or be a golden egg? Think about it. As mentioned by Dr.Maya Angelou, you will never know how amazing you can be if you try to adhere to the usual type. Go out there and be you, be unique!
“The best way to gain self-confidence is to do what you are afraid to do”: Swati Sharma
Say you were starting a business selling bracelets, so you started selling them at school for a head start. Your classmates ridiculed you for selling such “ugly” and “cheap” bracelets. You were embarrassed, but in your heart, you knew that one day, your bracelet would be the bracelet everyone wanted.
Long story short, you continued to sell your bracelets, and eventually, your business slowly started to succeed. As your business flourished, you became more confident and dedicated to making more bracelets. Even the quality of your bracelets improved. You believed, and your self-confidence and your business improved.
To sum it up, Swati Sharma implies that if you do what you are afraid to do, you will surprise yourself by succeeding. As a result, your self-confidence will shoot through the roof.
“Breathe darling, this is just a chapter. It’s not your whole story.”: S.C. Laurie
When going through rough times, our natural inclination is to think everything is over. But unfortunately, that is not true. It is ok to grieve, but don’t let it be like that for too long because you have to get up and continue walking. You can’t let the worse get the best of you. Like S.C. Laurie said, “breathe, this is just a chapter of the book, not your whole story.” Breathe.
