After waiting weeks for international shipping my @victoriassecret
order FINALLY arrived in the mail today 💌🌹✨
I've been feeling a bit uncertain and insecure about my body lately, not hating its appearance, but struggling to feel completely comfortable in it. With some of the gains I've been making lately, my body dysmorphia is confused. HECK I'm confused! I feel part of me has been able to restore adequate logic in order to perceive my body in a rather realistic way, but I also can't help but question everything I think about my body. I feel like I'm almost overanalysing and then I reflect on this, which becomes a rather deep and complex thought process about why I think the way I do. It's like "thought-ception" (yes I did just make that up). So since I'm so befuddled I felt like some new cutesy underwear was in need 🙈❤️ Not only is it exciting to wear nice undies, it helps us all feel a bit special. The feeling of knowing I'm wearing something nice can be an instant mood lifter for me. The underwear gives me more self-confidence and helps me learn to like the body that's IN them! To make me feel more happy with the skin I'm in 🙌🏻 And today when my delivery came and I put them on for the first time and felt a rush of pride. Pride in myself for actually challenging the self-conscious and body-shy thoughts. Pride for actually allowing myself to indulge in an act of self-care by buying myself something I liked and wasn't a necessity. Pride for actually looking in the mirror and kinda liking what I saw 😄💪🏻 Sometimes it's the little things we do that make a world of difference in the way we see ourselves. And there should be no shame in doing things to make us feel good! Treat yourself, not because you earned it, but because you deserve it! And you do, you always do. Just be being a living breathing human, you deserve to feel delight, satisfaction, happiness and self-admiration 😍❤️
