So yesterday a very unhappy, mean lady was commenting on one of my photos basically saying I’m a liar and fraud. She claimed that I say my weight and looks are a result of my high carb low fat diet but she says I’m a liar and photoshop my photos.
Honestly I was not sure how to take this. It was shocking to me that someone who does not even know me could talk to me the way she did. I believe in spreading love so there was no way I was going to get to her level of ugliness with my response.
She also told me I should not think great things of myself. This to me was such a powerful statement. Before I could even say it one of my friends commented “if you don’t think great of yourself, who will?”. This is exactly what I thought too. Only someone who thought so little of them self could say a statement like this.
Anyone that has followed me in the last year or so or knows me well knows the struggles I went through. After having Lunabella I was hit hard with post partum depression and anxiety. After just having a baby and going through this it made my ability to love myself basically impossible.
When Lunabella was exactly 6 months old I committed to fully raw again. I had been high raw up to that point but it was not enough for me. Going back to fully raw really transformed me; not only on the outside but the inside as well. I really began to love myself again.
This woman’s pure anger and ugliness was a huge reflection of herself. I’m just glad I’m at a point in my life where I truly do love who I am so when someone of such little importance speaks to me this way I can just brush it off.
I just wanted to send a message to all of you today to let you know you are loved. Whether you love yourself or not, you are loved. I love you. If you are struggling with self love, don’t hesitate to reach out. I was there.
I truly believe raw is love (hence why I called my book raw is love! Payhip.com/rawislove). You have got to learn to love yourself and not rely on it from others. Self love is huge. The only opinion that matters of yourself is really your own.
Had this lady spoken to me this way a year ago I would’ve been in bed crying for days. No one will ever hold that power over me again. So lady, thanx for thinking my beauty is too great to be real. I’ll take that as a compliment.
Today I choose to love myself.
