Insecurity often surrounds us when we go out in public. Some of us feel eyes all over us and in the worst case, some derogatory remarks, too, reach our ears. In a situation like this, we forget that everyone has their own sense of consciousness and worldview and that their perception of us says more about them than about us.

Although the worst happens when we let these remarks sink in. Soon the mean comments also start to affect our way of life. We start to notice what we are missing and to put ourselves down. With all the pity, some signs like eating disorders and depression can become visible. Other signs may not be so obvious but still affect your mind, such as reluctance to click pictures or refusing to go to parties because you’re afraid of what people will think. .

We all have unique sizes, shapes, thoughts and ideas. Think about what makes you unique? What do you bring to the table that others can’t? Sometimes it is a journey to understand the potential of which we are all capable. Until I overcame an addiction – with professional help – I didn’t even know I was addicted. Likewise, self-knowledge is not always about appreciating your external attributes. like your body or your skin, but it is also important to integrate the appreciation for what is inside of you.

Trust allows us to have stronger relationships with others, to become effective leaders in our businesses and careers, and being able to make decisions about all areas of our lives.

3. Walk towards self-acceptance

I have personally been ashamed of my body for most of my life and have come to conclusion that this is part of the authenticity. In my journey of self-acceptance, I had to learn and understand that most people have very low self-esteem issues. If we don’t love or accept ourselves, how can we love and accept others in to return to? The goal is to have a loving relationship with oneself, which means accept your body as it is. Constantly work on your body image and send love and light to those who choose to discourage you. The more you develop a relationship with yourself, the more your inner confidence will grow. I started clicking pictures of me every day, reminding myself that I’m hot and shiny and no one can convince me otherwise.

4. Show yourself a little gratitude

The journey to self-love isn’t always easy, but you can practice simple ways to develop a relationship with your body, look in the mirror and repeat the “always sexy, always shiny” mantra. No matter what size you are or what your double chin makes you uncomfortable. Choose to stand in front mirror and thank yourself for what you have and don’t despise yourself for what you miss. Constant gratitude is the only step forward.
