Self-love is my favorite thing in the world. Yes, my ego is big enough to fill an entire football stadium but it wasn’t always like that. I struggled for years to accept myself and learn to love myself. And even though I love myself completely today, I still have trouble sometimes and need that validation from myself that I am ENOUGH. Especially during finals week at school, I find myself doubting my intelligence and how awesome I am. We all need validation from time to time in our lives whether it be over a heartbreak, school or on daily basis. Here are my favorite things to say to empower myself – this is for all the people out there that struggle to accept themselves and love themselves through their mistakes and self-testing times.
