Self Respect

Self Respect: pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity.
{Thanks to Google for defining that for me}

Writing about something a little different today since I thought I needed to switch things up. Down below you will find a few ways to have self respect. 


1. Accept that you make mistakes- Don't worry about the mistakes you have made they are in the past. They are long gone and dwelling can be oh so tiring. Come to terms with them and start being proud of yourself for learning from the mistakes you have made. 

2. Stand up for what you believe- Being able to say no to something you don't want to do because of your beliefs is having respect towards yourself! Have pride in what you believe.

3. Know you are beautiful- The fact that you are the only person like you is beautiful. Try not to compare yourself with others because they aren't you. You are beautiful and if you come to terms with that it's easy to love yourself. 

4. Do something nice for yourself everyday- Listen to your favorite song, take a walk, or enjoy time painting. Do something you love to do everyday. 

5. Stop trying to be normal- Can anyone tell me what normal even is? I think it's a made up concept and we are trying too hard to be something unrealistic. 


Much love,
Vanessa

  5. This is such a lovely, helpful post Vanessa. It's so important to respect yourself and stay true to your core values; who you are as a person. I really like how you've added in 'doing something nice for yourself' as something under self respect too, as it shows that it's something we actually deserve!
