"I grew up in a conservative atmosphere and was really a shy kid; more so, because I used to fall sick quite often. I was allergic to pretty much everything. Most of my friends couldn't understand what was happening and preferred to stay away from me. I didn't have anyone to talk to, which eventually lowered my self-esteem.
Thankfully, my father got transferred to Vijayawada and I joined a good college. I recieved better exposure when I began talking more and made new friends. My confidence took a complete turn as my teachers and friends taught me to take chances in life. Because of my allergies, I never got to be adventurous nor found an opportunity to let out the child inside me. But now, I jump at every new opportunity that comes my way. I have promised myself that I will keep discovering new things and constantly remind myself that no sneeze can hold me back!" #Explore#Life#Confidence#Fightback#Survival#Introvert#Friends#Family#Educate#Teacher#SelfEsteem#Setbacks#Opportunity#Andhra#HumansofAndhra

Why don't I do the things I know are good for me ? was the first self development book I've ever bought and read when I was 17 years old, almost 13 years ago. I was like how the fuck does this book know what I'm thinking inside of my head? #marketinggoals
Ever since, I've got hooked on how I can become the best version of myself!
I've been stuck in trying to perfect anything in my life; my relationships, my health or even my website!
When I understood that perfectionism, like procrastination, was another way for my fear and low self esteem to get the best of me, I decided to say #fuckperfectionism and started doing anything I could the best way I could without forcing anything.
And as a byproduct, I noticed that I'm pretty good at many things and that I can always get better!
But anytime I get #stuck in the loop of perfectionism, I'm like BOY BYE!🙅🏾
How will you deal with your need for perfection now?
On this Thankful Thursday, I am Thankful for so many things!
I am Thankful for my new job.
I am Thankful that I did not
berate my child for destroying my new car seat with melted crayon
I am Thankful that I was able to see someone elses point of view of my ex
I am Thankful that I have today off
I am Thankful to have another day to be grateful for all that I have and all that is to come
I am Thankful that @lildarrelthecomedian has given us the definition of a "pussy pouch" and its purpose. So, I am not ashamed of my stomach anymore
I am Thankful that at least five people will read this whole stat!😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
For the longest time I attributed my worth to my weight.
The story in my head 💭 went a little like this⤵️...
❌He doesn't like me (because I'm fat)
❌She doesn't want to be my friend (because I'm fat)
❌I'll never be good at sports (because I'm fat)
❌I'm not attractive (because I'm fat)
❌I won't get the promotion (because I'm fat)
❌I'll never be successful (because I'm fat)
❌He'll never date me (because I'm fat)
❌I'll have problems getting pregnant (because I'm fat)
Can you relate?🙋♀️
I'm going to give you a bit of a spoiler alert... ALL LIES! All of them!🤥🤥🤥
Your WORTH is NOT MEASURED by (a) the SCALE nor by (b) the # of BOYS who like you, # of FRIENDS you have, # of MEDALS you've won, your APPEARANCE, SUCCESS, $$$, # of PROMOTIONS you receive, RELATIONSHIPS you've had or the PREGNANCIES you have/haven't had. Go read this paragraph again🔁.
I say this with love... But you're a stubborn little one... You believe you need to lose the extra weight, regain your energy and confidence before you can OWN these lies and show up as the best version of yourself.
I know you. I've helped countless women just like you realize these false stories. I've seen these women break down so many barriers and TRANSFORM their lives. It all starts with taking the first step and addressing your nutrition and health.
Are you ready to take your first step? Comment with your fave emoji if you're ready!🙌
We are all guilty of shying away from compliments.
On the blog today: pet peeve + my Sam’s find + non-stop - link in bio. Happy Friday Eve, friends! ✌🏽
Isn’t it funny how the seasons in our life affect us in different ways? I used to get a thrill from running a faster mile or knocking out my longest run, but right now, something like running 3 miles without stopping sets my heart on fire. I could get down on myself by comparing my now to my past, but I’d rather focus on where I am. I’ll get back to running long & working on speed, but for now, I am ABLE to run. I ran 3 miles without stopping today. For today, that’s huge. For now, that is an accomplishment. Injuries suck, but they definitely make you appreciate being able to move your body. 💛🏃🏽♀️
I think too many of us see someone struggling and automatically jump into solutions mode. “You should this” or “No, don’t be silly you’re going to be okay just don’t think about it” - just good old heartfelt advice.
Which I totally get and used to do allll the time 🤦🏽♀️
But the more I think about it the more I realise that sometimes it’s kind of like a slap in the face for them. It’s almost like we’re telling this struggling person “no honey, you’re not allowed feel the way you feel because it’s wrong. You should do this instead”.
You know that feeling you get when you’re really angry and then some genius says “just calm down” and then you imagine the million different ways you’re going to murder this person? 🙃
But what if instead, I told you that you’re ALLOWED to be angry with what happened? You’re allowed to be upset with what they did. Heck, you SHOULD be annoyed. It’s okay! Let yourself FEEL.
We already live in a society telling us we’re not okay and we should change, we don’t need it from our loved ones too (even if is with good intention).
Sometimes we don’t need advice, we just need to vent out our feelings and feel validated knowing we’re not going to be judged for them.
Be the person who truly listens rather than the person who thinks they know better.
Ik vertelde gisteren in mijn story al over mijn beste vriendin @me_mypain_i. Ik heb enorm veel bewondering voor Kelly. Ze is chronisch ziek en heeft heel wat zware diagnoses maar toch is ze een ongelooflijke vechter. Ze zet haar in voor #chronicillnessawareness en #mentalhealthawareness, is oliecoach, schrijft een blog, volgt cursussen en geeft workshops.Waarschijnlijk ben ik nog dingen vergeten. Ze is ook een mega vriendin voor mij, zij weet dan ook hoe ik me vaak voel aangezien we beiden fibromyalgie en CVC hebben. Ik heb het heel moeilijk met het aanvaarden van mijn beperkingen en daar ondersteunt en helpt ze mij enorm in
Naast dit ben ik ook enorm trots op haar #selflove avontuur. Waar ze maanden geleden zich heel onzeker over voelde heeft ze bijna overwonnen. Zo doet ze mee aan de @thediversityproject nu komende zaterdag, neemt ze echt me-time, koopt ze kledij die zij graag ziet en niet wat anderen passent zouden vinden en heeft ze al een ganse hoop 'depri' kleren weg gegooid.
Haar eigen quote is " IK WIL NIET SLANK ZIJN MAAR STERK" en dat is zo mooi gezegd!
Aan zelfliefde moet je werken, het komt niet op 1 dag!
She's the best, want ze zet zich ondanks haar eigen zorgen ongelooflijk in voor andere mensen en dieren.
Ga naar @me_mypain_i en volg haar om te tonen dat je haar ook zo een POWER vouw vindt!

LAST DAY OF OUR DIVINE #LEOSEASON OF THE SOUL! ▪️▪️▪️▪️➖➖▪️▪️▪️▪️
When your eyes are tired the world is tired also.
When your vision has gone no part of the world can find you.
Time to go into the dark where the night has eyes to recognize its own. There you can be sure you are not beyond love.
The dark will be your womb tonight.
The night will give you a horizon further than you can see.
You must learn one thing: the world was made to be free in.
Give up all the other worlds except the one to which you belong.
Sometimes it takes darkness and the sweet confinement of your aloneness to learn anything or anyone that does not bring you alive is too small for you.
