Sit pretty and smile. Someone special is watching you. Your beauty comes from within and it shines through your actions, words and deeds. If others can see that within you, why can’t you see it too? Stop the negative talk and put the insulting recording on delete! You don’t need to hear it and it isn’t true anyway. Time to start loving who you are, inside and out!!
Too often we take in the words of fear, hate and jealousy that others throw our way and keep the recording in our head. We allow it to play over and over again, until little by little we start believing what the words say.
It’s one thing to be dissatisfied with certain aspects of self. But you have the ability to change things you don’t feel comfortable with, into something you have pride in. Whither it’s your body shape, the condition of your skin, or the constant anger you have through out your day. These things you control and can improve until you are happy and confident.
It’s another to take in the negative insults and attacks from others who are simply trying to degrade or demean you, simply because they don’t like who they are inside. Their barrage of insults is an attempt to knock you down so they can feel better about who they are. For you are a constant reminder of what they are not.
Set their baggage down. It’s not yours and you have no reason to carry it any longer. Let them know you’re giving their hate and insults back, because it’s not your truth and you’re not carrying it for them any more. Then walk away.
Show some love and compassion for yourself. You deserve it! Define who you are and who you want to be, then go out and be that person. Look in the mirror and see the beautiful person you are. Walk with confidence, not over ego. Look at other with compassion and acceptance, not with disdain or disapproval. Be kind and loving to others who are carrying baggage they don’t need. Because that’s what you wish others would do for you. Sit pretty and be open to the compliments and attention that come your way because of who you are, mind/body/spirit. You can do it! …It’s never to late!
