Rebuilding self confidence.
It can be the hardest thing to do after becoming a mother. While being a mother is the hardest yet best job ever- it has taken a toll on my body image.
I preach self love because I believe very strongly in it. However, some days I avoid mirrors, selfies… my clothes. Why? Because I’ve gained weight and never lost it. Partly due to medical issues partly due to pregnancies.
I love my stretch marks, my c-section scar , wider hips and ever the extra belly skin and lbs because I know my body grew, nourished and birthed TWO Babies. But some days that doesn’t matter and I hate the way my body is.
The point I’m making is- its okay to have days like where you second guess your self. Days where you wish you could changed something. But forever negative thought, think of a positive one. I may hate my belly, but I love what it did(grew babies!)
Self confidence, self love and self esteem don’t happen over night. But that is okay. Enjoy the steps, the journey, the ride.
