I’ve never been ashamed to admit that he is my everything, my only weakness. He is also my never ending strength. Without him, I don’t exist. With him, nothing can stop me.

10 BETTER BODY AFFIRMATIONS FOR YOUNG WOMEN


1. Your body is in flux for the rest of your life. Think of your body as fluid instead of static — it’s always going to change. So get comfortable with those changes.

2. No one will love you or not love you because of your body. You are lovable because you’re you, not because your body looks a certain way.

3. The most intensely personal relationship you’ll ever have is with your body. It’s a lifelong relationship that’s well worth investing in and nurturing the same way you would with loved ones.

4. You don’t owe your body to anyone. Not sexually, not aesthetically. Your body is yours. Period.

5. What someone else says about your body says more about them than it does about you. Look past the actual snark to the person who’s saying it, because it’s only a reflection of what they think of themselves. That’s when you’ll see how little power their words have.

6. Your body is not a reflection of your character. It’s a physical home for the complex and wondrous and unique being that is you.

7. Take up as much space as you want. You don’t have to be small, or quiet, or docile, regardless of your physical size.

8. Everything you need to accept your body is already inside you. There’s no book, or diet, or workout routine or external affirmation that you need to feel good about your body right now.

9. Your body is a priority. It’s always trying to tell you things. Taking the time to listen to is of the utmost importance.

10. Wear whatever you want. Your body shape does not dictate your personal style, and fashion rules that say otherwise are wrong. Dress yourself in a way that makes you feel happy and confident and beautiful, because guess what? You are.

This is important for everyone. You are loveable because you are yourself, not because of your body shape. You are beautiful, regardless of what you look like.

Alright, my lovely followers, I know some of you have been sending me questions asking me how I can be willing to try and make things work with the princess and how could I possibly take him back. I haven’t been ignoring your questions. I just find it easier to respond to you all like this instead of answering the same few questions over and over again.

So here it is.

How can you go back to the princess after everything he did to you?

Simple. I love him. Even after everything, I am still completely and hopelessly in love with him. He’s my baby, my princess. Nothing will ever change that. I would and have gone to hell and back for him.

Now this doesn’t mean that we are just jumping right back into our relationship and pretending like nothing happened. No, we are taking things slow. We see each other several times a week with him spending at least one night a week at the apartment. He still lives at his parent’s house. So we are taking things slow.

Aren’t you worried he’ll leave again?

Yes. I’m terrified he’ll run away again. It’s one of my biggest fears. That being said, I have no choice but to trust him when he says he wants this and won’t run away again when he’s feeling overwhelmed and that he’ll actually talk to me like he’s supposed to so we can figure it out before he takes off.

How can you trust him? I would never be able to trust someone again if they did that to me.

I have no choice but to trust him if we hope to heal from the hurt and pain of these past couple of months. And we are healing.

I don’t understand. You deserve better. Why?

I’m flattered that you think I deserve better. Alas, I don’t want better. I want my princess. He is my everything. Even now, he is my world. To me, he is beautiful and perfect. His flaws only make him more endearing to me. There may be better out there, but it doesn’t interest me. I still hope to spend the rest of my life with this boy once we heal from this. We are both growing and learning.

Basically, no relationship is perfect. Sometimes things fall apart and then they fall back together. Sometimes pushing your partner away instead of just opening your mouth and talking to them can make a minor thing into a huge and painful situation.

It was only after we put aside all the blaming and our pride that we were able to actually talk to each other and admit to how wrecked we both were without each other.

We are growing. We are healing. We are taking things slow. But we are together and we are strong.

I have faith in us.
