They say that loving yourself is a sole duty to your own soul, but there is another reason why you also need to be confident in your own body.
YOU NEED TO BE CONFIDENT TO MAKE OTHERS FEEL SAFE TO BE CONFIDENT IN THEIR OWN BODIES.
I feel at times that one of the things that hold a person back in embracing their own fierce curves is the fact they are afraid of being ridiculed by other people. Like in doing so, they will not be accepted. They will be called “arrogant and boastful”.
But people should know that being confident about your body is a birthright. It’s a fact --- our bodies are beautiful. It is one of the best instruments in the world. It allows us to create, destroy, renew etc. We need to embrace this now while we have a chance.
And so, for those who are still looking around for “a purpose” in doing so. Aside from the wonderful you, being confident in your body inspires other people to do so. Being confident in who you are, actually liberates more women and men from their own limitations in loving themselves --- just the way they are.
So do you booboo. Others will follow.
