Something I like to talk about every once in a while is living a positive life. In my opinion, the type of energy you have in your life will reflect on your body image as well. For example, whenever I’m feeling down in the dumps instead of sulking in my misery (although sometimes sulking is what I need to do for an hour before I’m ok haha) I look at myself and say you got this. Then I proceed to dress like I normally would dress and I do my hair and makeup. Now, as much as life has really thrown me some curveballs recently I continue to push forward. Yes, I cried and yes, I got angry. However, at the end of the day I’m determined to keep going and I’m determined to turn this negative into a positive, no matter how long it takes. I think it’s also good to surround yourself with positive people. I have two friends who are extremely positive and can see good in even the worst situations. When I’m feeling down or negative they are the first people I hang around and ask for some words of wisdom about life in general. Just remember that misery loves company. I know that when my daily life isn’t positive, I start to pick myself apart. I start looking at myself in the mirror and attacking my own self with hurtful words. When my daily life is more positive, I can actually look at myself in the mirror and say “I like my hair today,” or “danggggg I look good in this outfit.” Yes, sometimes I give myself pep talks, don’t judge me!
