What I know now, that I wish I knew then… or what I wish I could tell my younger self, would probably be along the lines of the following.
- Your body is worth so much more than you’re giving it credit. You have a family history of heart disease, obesity, hormonal issues, and reproductive issues. Get into the habit now, at a young age, so that you can live a long healthy life.
- A long the lines of taking care of your body, you have to take care of your mind as well. You are a beautiful girl, and will be a beautiful woman. Let those thoughts fill you now, to lock out any negative self statements.
- Because the more you start hating yourself, the more you start seeking validations from men. You will never gain respect from others until you’ve learned to respect yourself.
