Insecure

A lot of people have insecurities; overall you are insecure. About what though? Everybody claim to be so proud of whom god made them to be but still, they still hold insecurities. When you are insecure, it means you don’t love yourself unconditionally. How do you expect someone to love you “flaws and all” but you don’t prioritize who you are??

I can admit that I possess insecurities. I used to not like my butt, my hair, how skinny I was, my teeth and the list goes on. Today I only dislike my attitude (which is still a work in progress). Before I met my husband, I just new I didn’t have any. I was confident, loud, dressed provocative (because I thought it was cool), cursed people out and gave attitude to keep up an image. Lots of people do it. It’s sad, depressing to know that was me but I am not ashamed of whom I was. I’ve learned to love myself. I kept that image to cover up what was inside.

My husband played a role in me learning to love myself. He stripped me down naked from my bitchy attitude, no weaves, minimum make up, wardrobe changed immensely and today I stand a humble woman. Don’t get me wrong, it was very hard, I was in the most absolute stage of being uncomfortable. I felt like I didn’t know who I was and I just could not figure it out. Of course I thought to myself this guy is trying to change me and is not accepting me to be who I am. However, unknowingly, he loved me so much that he unintentionally took me to this level of discomfort to help me find myself.

Ladies… and fellas, being you is not bad at all. In fact I love being me. Unfortunately people allow social media and reality TV dictate who they should be and what they should look like. Therefore, they become indulged in “why can’t I look like that” instead of “I’m ok being without that”.

Shut out the media and focus on you. I guarantee you’ll love you for you despite what you are taught to be!!

      1. I felt the same way. However, when you come to realize you are healthy and this is just who you are, your life begins to change. Your happiness starts with your mindset. None the less you are gorgeous!!
