YOU CANT FOLLOW FAKE AND EXPECT TO FIND REAL ❌❌❌ One of my favourite books by @johann.hari beautifully details how our generation are being misled by junk / fake values - it talks about how if your life is influenced and driven by junk values, the chances are, according to Professor Tim Kassar, you’ll be more anxious, more depressed and you’ll experience less Joy. I’m going to keep it facts... in life, some of our guilty pleasures, that seem so harmless, are silently causing us tremendous mental harm. Following fake people, live their fake lives and push their fake junk values on to you, is not good for you, just like going to McDonald’s and eating burgers is not good for the body, allowing yourself to be influenced by the wrong people, is not good for your mind. One of the most important things I did last year was unfollowing and/or muting people across all my timelines that were subtly influencing my negatively... just like their subtle influence can quite literally ruin your life, their subtle absence has quite literally changed my life for the better. You should do this on your timelines but also in real life too. It’s hard to stop the damage a bad influence in your life can do to you, but it’s easy to prevent that person from ever having the opportunity to do so in the first place. Unfollow them, cut them, stop giving them your time and mind 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 REAL ONLY. Agree? Have you made any changes in your life? Let me know! Replying to everyone in the comments 👇🏽👇🏽👇🏽 ...
I'm working on my confidence and self-acceptance.
I'm trying to love myself for how I look even when I'm not at my best (and this happens often)
Self love is hard, but needed.
I'm posting these pics just because normally I would delete them and forget them, just because my hair isn't perfect or I don't like the shape of my face
Maybe for someone this could mean nothing, but for me, "exposing" myself on social media is very important, and I'm trying to do it more everyday🥰❤️❤️
[sorry for my poor english but Italian wasn't just the right language to express how I'm feeling] ...
As a person with an anxiety disorder and a past of an eating disorder, one of the fundamental things I did (and always advice others to do) is to do what feels wrong until it feels right.
If something scares you, that is a sign you should actually DO that thing rather than avoid it. There is literally no other way out of EDs and anxiety than Doing The Thing™️, a truth we often realise far too late.
Wether that be eating pizza or going to that party. If you feel anxious and uncomfortable after e.g eating a food you fear or by being in a certain situation, don’t beat yourself up! Celebrate it, because that anxiety and discomfort is a sign you are moving forward. Actively seek out these situations!👏
I promise you that if you keep on going, trying and doing, the end result will be worth it. Start small if you want. As long as you start. As long as you keep moving💜 #realcovery ...
💕 Why placing your happiness on external things doesn’t work... 💕
🌸 Often we attach happiness to an event in the future.
➖ I’ll be happy when I get married.
➖ I’ll be happy when I get $10k monthly.
➖ I’ll be happy when I get 100k followers.
💕 This doesn’t work because every time you accomplish a goal, you will create another larger goal.
🌸 You’ll always be chasing happiness.
💕 Happiness starts from within. You don’t need your goals to be accomplished today for you to feel happy.
🌸 Choose to see everything from a positive view today. Be happy on the journey toward your goals.
