Quote 31 May 28,686 notes
As a doctor, let me tell you what self-love does:
It improves your hearing, your eyesight, lowers your blood pressure, increases pulmonary function, cardiac output, and helps wiring the musculature. So, if we had a rampant epidemic of self-love then our healthcare costs would go down dramatically. So, this isn’t just some little frou-frou new age notion, oh love yourself honey. This is hardcore science.

Quote 20 May 56 notes
In a world where physical representation of girls and women is not a personal, but a political statement, it is more important than ever that we refuse to accept an imposition of artificial stereotypes onto our very real bodies, faces, and minds.

Anon: Up until recently I have been embarrassed that I don’t shave and that my boobs aren’t symmetrical but I say screw that. They are perfect and cute just the way they are and I love my body hair and all. Working on that self love every day.
Note: Your boobs are suuuuper cute (I love that lil freckle) and I absolutely love your bush and the way it looks just peeking our of your underwear~ Your tummy is really cute, too. I love the contrast between your skin and the blue of your belly button ring. You are a perfect and utterly adorable human and I’m really glad to hear about this self lovin’ journey of yours. Keep on keepin’ on, my friend!

Feminism is knowing that you don’t have to wear things to impress a man

Feminism is also knowing that it’s okay to wear things to impress a man if you want to

im so pro-selfie like there are so many bigger problems in the world than girls who think theyre pretty

one of those problems is girls who dont think theyre pretty

And sometimes selfies are posted by people who don’t think they’re pretty but manage to put that aside for long enough to take and post a selfie because they feel better than usual at that moment which is a great thing and the last thing they need is discouragement.

You don’t always have to actively love yourself. Body positivity can be quite “forced smiles” about things sometimes, but if you’re having a crappy day try not to feel bad about the thoughts you’re having. Take a second to step back and look at the progress you’ve made, and at least appreciate that if you can.

Your body is normal. Repeat after me: “My body is normal. My body is wonderful. My body is beautiful.”

Most importantly though, “My body is mine.
