And it can sometimes seem so unreachable to feel that self-love that we actually just abandon the goal all together. But when we try to abandon ourselves, we’re still stuck with a painful reality.
Because here’s the truth: there’s two relationships we can never escape – one is your relationship with food, and one is with yourself.
Contrary to what many people believe about self-love, it doesn’t happen overnight, or with one single “Ah-ha!” moment. Self-love is a series of small actions. We repair the harm to ourselves and rebuild a new, loving relationship every day we choose to do the nurturing thing. Because self-love is an action, you have the opportunity to build self-love through your actions every day. Here are a few places you can start:
Doing these self-loving actions doesn’t mean your internal negative voice goes away overnight. But it does mean you’re working towards a new way of being, a new way relating to yourself and your body.
With consistent, self-loving action toward yourself, you’re bound to start to shift your beliefs and feelings toward yourself. When you’re a good parent to yourself, you begin to establish the trust and confidence that was lost in the years of body shaming and engaging in your unhealthy relationship with food and dieting. Self-loving actions get us close to the peace and self-love so many of us are looking for.
