So Worth Loving

"you gotta look for the good in the bad, the happy in your sad, the gain in your pain, and what makes you grateful not hateful." High-res

"you gotta look for the good in the bad, the happy in your sad, the gain in your pain, and what makes you grateful not hateful."

"Self love is so vital to me because living in the world today is anything but easy."

As a girl, I am constantly being told what to wear, how to look, how to feel, what to eat, (or what not to eat) & to have a big smile on my face while doing all of this. After a while, everyone sort of blends in with each other & you can’t tell what’s real & what’s an illusion. After years of everyone telling you who you should be, you begin to lose sight of who you actually are. I was one of the biggest offenders until one day, I woke up & decided that I wasn’t going to blend in any longer. On Friday January, 13th 2012- I got my fourth tattoo on my right wrist that says “so worth loving”. Now, every time I see or hear something that is telling me what I should be, how i should look, how I should feel, or who I should love, I look at my wrist & remind myself not to get caught up with what everyone’s opinion of me is & remain true to myself. It can get extremely lonely out there & having a positive self image 100% of the time is near impossible, but if you just keep your chin up & tell yourself once a day that you are indeed So Worth Loving, those opinions that you care so much about will simply disappear from your mind & that’s when you can start exercising self love & empowerment. Some pretty amazing things can happen when you truly love yourself for who you are. You ARE unique. You ARE beautiful. You ARE loved. I am Aimee McClellan, & I am SO WORTH LOVING.

You deserve to be loved. Do you believe that? I know it’s hard to believe for some of you but it’s true, and it is worth believing. It can be so easy to fall into the trap of self hatred and the lies that say you’re not good enough. When you think in such a self-demeaning way, you are exposing yourself to unnecessary pain that does not need to be in your life. Why live like that? You are worth so much more! I would encourage you today to try and change your way of thinking. Stop hating on yourself. Stop comparing. Stop making excuses for why you deserve less. You are so worth loving; it’s time you start thinking and believing that you are.
