Self love is trending a lot right now, and I am definitely for it, we live in a world where society expects us to be perfect people when being perfect is literally unachievable. We are held to standards that are unrealistic, causing us to feel like failures in the long run. We can not let this negative influence win in our lives. We have to recognize that society's standards are IMPOSSIBLE. We have to distinguish the difference between society's standards and achievable goals. This can cause people to lose purpose or drive in what they are doing because what they are wanting is simply unattainable or unmaintainable.
I want you to make a goal, an achievable goal. Write it down and strive for that goal. Do one thing everyday to help you come closer to that goal and remember to most importantly LOVE YOURSELF while striving for that goal. Even during the hiccups, mistakes, messups, keep pushing because you'll get there eventually. Don't let that negativity win. Forgive yourself if you make mistakes. Don't let society win, making you believe you'll never reach your goal (unless its of course unrealistic). Set REAL goals, love yourself and FORGIVE yourself. Support each other. We will all get there. 💪
