What you are going through is not a weakness. It takes strength to face it and that is admired. Remember to laugh, breathe, love, live, and repeat. You are worth it.
Written by our newest contributor Ashley:
I can feel it. The air getting caught in your chest. the weight forcing itself upon you, making the bones beneath you weak. I can feel the questions rising. What’s wrong with me? Why doesn’t he love me? I can feel the hope draining out of your heart.
Wether its a raw wound or an old whispering one.
You can’t seem to escape those questions.
But, do you know what I know?
That you are not reading this by mistake.
That you my dearest, are so worth loving!
That after the ground has been broken, only then beauty flourishes.
I know that you were made for bold and beautiful things.
That I honor you for loving so passionately and that one day a man will risk loving you that fully.
I want you to know that I’ve been there only a few months ago, that the pain I felt was so deep it threatened to split my bones.
Yet here I am, waking in the night to tell you:
You are far more strong and worth it then you dare to believe!
Let me say it again.
YOU ARE WORTH LOVING! YOU ARE STRONG!
Read it as many times as it takes to sink in.
Will you dare to believe?

“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.
