LOVE ME For What I am

Ever been admired or loved? Isn’t it a magical feeling when someone treats you like a princess and says you are the most beautiful girl in this world. When it is so easy to love others , why is it so difficult to fall in love with yourself?

  • I wish I could look like her
  • I wish I was that thin
  • I wish I had her flawless skin

Why do we keep comparing ourselves with others? Why try to be like someone else ? Isn’t original better than a copy? If you grew up hearing you aren’t good enough, it becomes difficult to believe in yourself. Why are we so cold hearted when it comes to ourselves? Forgive yourself and move on. Isn’t Self acceptance better than self resentment?

Being overweight during my teen years, I have always fantasized myself having a Victoria secret model body someday. I may not look drop dead gorgeous, I may not be an A grade student, but I am empathetic and kind hearted. I have compassion and integrity. I am humble and grounded, but unfortunately all of this doesn’t hold much value in today’s society.

I am tired and sick of being someone else all the time. I won’t lie and say that I am in love with myself, but I am trying to, and that’s a start. Why should I give others a chance to hurt me? Whatever happened, good or bad, Reliving it won’t do me any good. I am not going to allow myself to be controlled by my past or others opinions. Unfortunately, I am my biggest critic. So from now onwards I am going to avoid all the unnecessary negative self talk. I am going to look in the mirror and repeat everyday before going to sleep…… I LOVE YOU. It’s time I start loving myself.

I came across few lines by Joybell C and would like to share it with all of you.

“The only person who can pull me down is myself and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore. You may be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter. Every second that you spend on doubting your worth, every moment you use to criticize yourself is a moment of your life wasted and thrown away. “

It took me a lot of time to understand that there is nothing You cannot achieve if you believe in yourself. Do you agree that believing in yourself increases your potentiality? Do you truly love yourself?

The Journey Begins : Introduction

 

 

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter.

Welcome to SNEHA’s EXPRESSION- India’s feminist and personal development blog.

 

I am 1990 born and have completed MBA (HR) in 2012 . I have taught in a college for 16 months and also worked with Convergys in Gurgaon and IBM India in Noida. An introvert but self-inspired, I like to pen articles close to my heart that are women centric and affect the young generation.

 

I was always soft-spoken and introvert since my childhood and couldn’t speak two sentences coherently without feeling scared or anxious. As a result, very early in life, I had resorted to writing a diary to express myself and vent out my thoughts.
There were certain issues that were percolating in my mind and which had become  need of the hour. Hence, I wanted to voice my perspective regarding the same. That’s why I ventured into blogging, as blogs are an effective medium to share thoughts.

I want to change people’s mindset. I always tell my mother that when I have children someday, I will never teach my daughters to dress ‘decently’, instead I will teach my son to not objectify women and respect them. My blog is a Feminist and Self- Acceptance blog that calls out on subjects like slut shaming, fat shaming, marital rape, Periods taboo etc. and urge everyone to come forward and not stay quiet.
Being overweight during my teen years, I have always felt ugly, under-confident and ended up with low self-esteem. It took me a lot of time to learn to love myself and accept the way I am. Hence, Self Acceptance also forms a crucial part of my blog.


Currently writing my first novel, Love is a lie, I aspire to become an author.
Thanks for joining me! Let’s join hands and embark on this journey together.
