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?
Have you ever walked in a room and thought that every girl in there was better looking than you?
You start looking around and wishing you had that girl’s perfectly straight hair, her designer clothes, or her skinny figure. Your self-esteem suddenly drops by the second. After all this comparing, you start to resent the girl that you think is prettier than you. I don’t know if that happens to you, but it sure is something I struggle with. I constantly feel the need to compare myself to every girl I see. It’s human nature for girls not to be fully satisfied with the way they look. There’s that ONE thing we want to change about our appearance. The media is constantly telling us what we should look like and that the only way we can be considered “beautiful” is if we look like the celebrities. So how do we escape all this bitterness towards ourselves and our self-esteem? Accept how you were made. I know it’s easier said than done…but if it’s something you really want, then you need a drastic change in mindset. YOU are your biggest critic. Start by complimenting yourself when you look in the mirror. Focus on the good things about you. Find out WHAT’S threatening you. Be realistic, instead of being jealous of someone, look at them and smile knowing that you are blessed too.

It’s Eryns birthday and she wanted to share this day with her entire SWL family. That is why we are having a sale on all of our Nuts and Bolts tees! If you look closely at the shirt it says “established for you and established by you”- We believe that we all can choose whether or not we are worthy of love.
We can not control what other people say about us but we can control our response. Tell yourself you are worthy of love. Believe it. Know it.
Happy people dont…
be yourself and no one else.
