What do negative thoughts, in this case, about body image or that perpetuate the belief that “I’m not good enough or deserving of love” get you? What’s the point of thinking them constantly when they only provoke feelings of self-loathing? We hold onto them because, on a deep soul level, we fear what releasing the negativity would mean. It would mean change, it would mean getting the life we’ve always desired and it would mean we’d be walking into the unknown. This unknown can be scary but so is the known where we are suffering. I don’t know about you but I’d rather venture into unknown territory with the potential to be amazing than stay in the known that is torturous. It all comes down to choosing your hard.
