3 Positive Affirmations For My Younger Sister That Doubles As My Best Friend

Growing up, we weren't that close and we argued a lot. However, at the end of the day, you are the one person who I know would never turn their back on me and I will forever be grateful to have you in my life. I love watching you grow into the beautiful girl I've known since she was a little human wrapped in a blanket, and this is for you.

We’ve come a long way since you were born

Before you were born, I was constantly asking mom and dad for a little sister. I wanted someone to play with so I wasn't alone and someone to share mom and dad's love with. Then, when I was four, my constant begging for a younger sister worked and you were brought into the world.

In the past almost 14 years that we've been sisters, we've been through hell. There were also times where we weren't the kindest to each other. However, when it came down to it, we were always there for each other to be a shoulder to lean on.

Recently we've gotten a lot closer and it makes me so happy. I wouldn't take back any drives to Starbucks or Target runs or laughs or any other memory for anything in the world and I can't wait until we can make some more.

It’s your turn

You're the oldest in the house now. It's your turn to take the role of oldest sister. Make sure to help mom with anything she needs in the house and don't give a hard time. Watch our littlest sister and shower her with all of the love in the world. Make sure that you are staying on top of your studies as well and being a good role model to the little ones. You got this, I believe in you.

I’m so proud of you

I've watched you grow from a tiny baby wrapped like a burrito in the hospital to the smart, beautiful, athletic, and funny girl you are today. Even though I'm away at school, I still love to hear about what you are doing and accomplishing and I can't wait to see you soon!

I love you!

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)

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.
