Motivational post on “Self Love” by Afun Susan – Why & How to Love Yourself as you are.

Hi Dear Friend, I’m so elated that you’re about to read this article written exclusively by me! I really do hope that this motivates that one person or two people out there waiting to read something like this.

I would have loved to introduce myself right now, but I already have a post on this blog about myself. If you’re interested in knowing more about me, click here. But in case you don’t really have the time for that, no probs, let’s go on with the post!

So first of all, what really is self love? Or what does it truly mean to love yourself?

Brave Belle says: "Self-love is one of these concepts that you just get. You don’t logically understand it. You feel it."

"Self-love is an exponential force." - Huffintonpost.com

“You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection.” — Buddha

I believe it is the ability to see yourself as the best version of you; it is a feeling in which you deeply cherish yourself, your body, your looks, your achievements, and even your imperfections/flaws. Yes your imperfections too! And that’s because you can’t really love yourself if you let your flaws worry you. Of course, everyone has flaws – you need to know that and no one’s perfect! 

Even the people you think have perfect lives have their own flaws (which could be physical or emotional or of any other kind you can think of). Your favorite celebrity or role model also has his/hers; even I myself have mine ;) So that proves it, nobody is flawless, nobody is perfect. What actually matters is one’s ability to allow the power of self-love to conceal his/her flaws, and that’s what many people do that we don’t easily notice their flaws. So what about you?


For today, I’ll just talk about Physical flaws

What’s up with your physicals? I’m talking about your body entirely, your looks. Is it your size? Your height? Your Skin Color? Or something about your body? Whatever it is…
If you don’t love your body, who will? You need to understand that you’re beautiful just the way you are, and you should appreciate that!


By the way, do you know Khoudia Diop- the darkest Senegalese Model? Re-read that statement if you need to, and permit me to emphasize on it, she is so dark or let’s say she’s BLACK (maybe one of the blackest girls ever) and yet she’s an outstanding model who has taken over the internet with her skin color. She’s one lady I admire.

She was once bullied about her color; but instead of letting criticism weigh her down, she embraced it and it is what has shot her into the social media fame. She only started modeling two years ago when she was just 17, but she already has over 500k followers on Instagram! 

 I recommend you read the full post about her, click here…

Winnie Harlow.

Here’s another lady we love, Winnie HarlowWinnie is a 23-year-old fashion and body positive model, a spokesperson and an activist. She was diagnosed with vitiligo at age 4. She dropped out of high-school because she faced a hard time as a result of the humiliations and insults she got from other kids at school because of her skin condition. 
Winnie Harlow once wrote: “The real difference isn’t my skin. It is the fact that I don’t find my beauty in the opinions of others. I’m beautiful because I know it…”

So you see dear, you don’t have to change anything about your body. Love yourself, you’re beautiful. Focus on your goals in your life; soon you’ll become some other people’s role model too.


How to love yourself/ steps to self-love

Ignore the haters; let them say whatever they want. The bitter truth is just that some people behave as if they were born to hate, they hate on people without enough reasons (it is not like they are perfect either). They’ll soon get jealous of how much you’ve grown in self love.

Be strong, you’re unstoppable. Don’t cry over yourself, don’t even think about it. Focus on your strengths and be determined to be successful. After all, success isn’t determined by pretty looks.

Do what you want, wear what you want, be comfortable in your body. After all, people’s opinion can’t pay bills. 

Look into the mirror and smile, take pictures of yourself and post them. Ignore the comments made by haters, delete them from your mind ASAP and if possible, block them, at the end you’ll find certain people who’ll cherish your confidence and beauty.

Just be yourself, let people see the real, quirky, imperfect, weird, beautiful and imperfect you. Love yourself, accept yourself, forgive yourself, and Be Yourself.

Be fearless, be Bold and be Brave!  You're unique, so stand out!

Till next time, I remain my humble self Afun Susan, don't forget to love yourself!
