12 Things You Deserve To Hear When You Feel Broken
Start writing a post

I wish that everyone would know how much they are really worth. It seems that so often, we lose faith in ourselves and tear ourselves down, myself included. I am blessed to have so many good friends in my life who make sure that I know my worth. I wanted to share some of the messages I have received from my friends with you because you deserve to hear these messages for yourself.

1. “You have grown so much. So proud of you just in general.”

You have come this far, and you will continue to thrive. There are people who notice how hard you are working and who are proud of the person you have become or are becoming.

2. “Reminder that I love you infinitely, I think you’re talented and intelligent and beautiful.”

It's true. You are talented, even when it doesn't seem like it. You have gifts that are unique, and you show them off. Your friends do love you and appreciate you.

3. “You’re never idle or treading water. You’re always making something of yourself or getting better at something.”

For those of you who feel like you have so much going on that you can never take a break, this is for you. People notice your hard work, I promise.

4. “Hope I never lose you.”

You deserve to hear this. People love you and truly care about you.

5. “You definitely have your head on straight. You’re trying so hard. I’m proud of you.”

When you feel like you are all over the place, don't forget where your morals stand. Keep your friends close and never disrespect people.

6. “You’ll make the best decision you can and until then just trust your intuition.”

You can do this. When it gets hard, just do the best you can.

7. “Don’t give up on your dreams…never.”

Don't you ever forget this. Everyone has something they live for. Don't regret not taking chances and never give up.

8. “I love you, you’re literally my hero, holy s**t are you so attractive, you’re a babe and you bring so much happiness to my life.”

Everyone needs someone to say this to them. It's a real confidence booster. Find your cheerleader.

9. “I appreciate you and wouldn’t be where I am today without you.”

There is always a way to affect people. Kindness will carry you a long way.

10. “You’re really bold about what you think and love, you love things so openly and unashamedly. You’re beautiful and confident in it, but not vain or cocky. You always brighten my day with your smile.”

Be bold. Be true to yourself and don't let anyone change you.

11. “You deserve endless happiness.”

Everyone deserves this. No one deserves to be hurt, torn to pieces, made to feel worthless, made to feel like they don't deserve love from anyone. No. You deserve the world.

12. “Believe in yourself.”

Please, listen to this. Don't ever think you're worthless. You are amazing.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
