Your weight. Your height. Your eye colour.
Your income. Your job title. The car you drive.
Your wrinkles. Your fat. Your cellulite. Your bra size. Your penis length. Your hairline. Anything and everything that you obsess about when you look in the mirror.
It’s all noise.
All of those things don’t mean a whole lot to anyone who really matters in your life.
No matter your bank balance… or who you are in the world… or what you look like…
You are you because of your heart.
You are you because of your unique essence.
You are you because of the specific ways that you show up in the world that don’t match up to anyone else’s way of being.
You are loveable and valuable, simply because you exist.
You will be loveable and valuable even if you lose your hair and gain weight.
You will be loveable and valuable even if you lose your important sounding job.
You will be loveable and valuable even if you make a mistake that feels out of integrity sometimes.
You will be loveable and valuable even if you try making a run at your dream job and it takes longer than you think it should be taking.
You will be loveable and valuable even if all you do today is smile at a stranger while you walk past them. You’ll also be loveable and valuable if you’re in such an awful mood that you can barely look up at anyone to make eye contact.
For the love of all that is good with the world, please don’t buy into the societally-reinforced noise that tells you that you need to be slimmer, stronger, sexier, richer, or better dressed in order to be loveable, worthwhile, or valuable as a human being.
You are loveable as you currently are, and that will never change.
You. Are. Loved.
And you will be loved, and deserving of love, at every stage of your journey.
