Weakness (wēknəs): a quality or feature regarded as a disadvantage or fault.
For the longest time, this is how I felt about my body. It was my weakness. A reason why I wasn’t cool enough. Pretty enough. Active enough. Or worthy enough of the things that I deeply desired.
When you live everyday, feeling as if you are inadequate, it can be hard to pull yourself out of the dark.
There are so many factors that aid in the negative thoughts we have about ourselves — our peers, the media, and even our own words of self-hate.
Words are power. They have the power to scar us. Each mean word, each scar, creates a callous on our hearts.
But just as they have the power to harm us, words have the power to uplift and heal.
These past several years, I’ve been on a journey of healing. Combating each negative thought or comment I may have, with something positive and up-lifting.
One way that I am doing this, is through the encouraging words of Birdiebee.
