Introducing - #SelfLoveSeries

Self-love is so important to me. In a time where the media heavily influences how we're suppose to act, how we're suppose to dress, and how we're suppose to feel about aspects of ourselves we can't always change, it can be pretty tough loving yourself when it seems like the people in the world don't.

For the month of February, I'm going to touch on vulnerable points in my life when I had trouble loving who I am and what I do to stay happy with myself. I'll also be interviewing my friends and have them open up about their love life with themselves.


At the end of the day, we're all the same. We're all 100% human. We're all flawed.

We can get so easily blinded by our perceptions of people because we only see what's on the exterior, whether that is a person's Instagram account or even a smile on someone's face.

Let us not forget that we aren't the only ones going through tough times, while reminding ourselves that our own obstacles matter as well.

You are worth it. What you're going through is so important.

Loving yourself is so important. Before you can spread love to others, you must first find love in yourself.

It's all about the journey of self-love and reaching your full potential.

There’s so much more to life than finding someone who will want you, or being sad over someone who doesn’t. There’s a lot of wonderful time to be spent discovering yourself without hoping someone will fall in love with you along the way, and it doesn’t need to be painful or empty. You need to fill yourself up with love. Not anyone else. Become a whole being on your own. Go on adventures, fall asleep in the woods with friends, wander around the city at night, sit in a coffee shop on your own, write on bathroom stalls, leave notes in library books, dress up for yourself, give to others, smile a lot. Do all things with love, but don’t romanticize life like you can’t survive without it. Live for yourself and be happy on your own. It isn’t any less beautiful, I promise.
