You are so incredibly worthy of love. You deserve every hug and every kind word of support and care when you are hurting. You are so incredibly worthy of love. Take a moment. Find a quiet place to yourself - a place you can be alone for a moment. When you get that chance, I want you to repeat, I am so incredibly worthy of love. Say it again, "I am so incredibly worth of love." Say it one more time - this time imagine shouting it from a mountaintop, "I am so incredibly worthy of love."

How do you feel? Did it feel good? Was it hard to believe this statement? What did it feel like? Notice the feelings this statement triggers inside of you. If you feel comfortable enough, continue processing this awareness. Try and understand where these feelings are coming from. Why or why not do you feel worthy? Do you remember what defined your belief of worthiness for you? You are so incredibly worthy of love.

No matter what the people surrounding your life have made you feel, you are so incredibly worthy of love. You deserve people in your life who make you feel special, safe, and loved. You deserve people in your life who support you for every ounce of who you are - the good and the ugly. You deserve someone who looks at you as their equal. You deserve someone who wants to see you succeed, someone who wants to help you be your healthiest and happiest. Somebody who will love you when you feel broken, and somebody who will love you when you feel whole.

I am so sorry your vulnerabilities have been abused by people you trusted. I am not just sorry - my heart shatters for you. My soul cries for the abuse you have endured. It is not fair and I am sorry it has affected your self-image in such an extreme way. Everybody is deserving of love, and I am so sorry the ones you loved and trusted have jeopardized what that means in a healthy way. I am so sorry people have impacted you in such a negative way that you have become frightened. I am so sorry people have impacted you in such a negative way, you have become scared of yourself. I want you to know, it is okay to be scared. Your feelings are valid. Your experiences are valid. Nobody knows what it is like to walk in your shoes except for you. I am sorry the wrong people have abused you against your awareness. I wish you could see how much you deserve. I wish you could see how much you are capable of. I want you to know, you are not alone. You are not the only one whose vulnerabilities were taken advantage of. It even happened to me. I thought it would destroy me. I was so wrong. It helped shape who I am today. In other words, it helped me grow into the person I have been waiting for my whole life - me.

You are so incredibly worthy of love. Your soul is crying out, "Please love me." You deserve to be loved first and for most. Embrace the love your soul is craving. Only when you love yourself, can healthy relationships blossom and grow.

Maybe you are not ready to love yourself yet, and that is okay. Please realize getting to know yourself takes time and patience. You are so incredibly worthy of love. I know it might be hard to see right now, but there are good people out there who will love you for who you are today, tomorrow, and in the future. You are not alone. The power you have inside you is so incredibly powerful. You are so incredibly worthy of love. Love will set you free if you just let go.

Remember to say to yourself, "I am so incredibly worthy of love." <3

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it

Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

I Don't Have To Wear Makeup To Be Beautiful

You don't have to, either.

452

For about as long as modern makeup/cosmetics/skincare brands have been around, the notion that women have to use any of these cosmetic products to be considered "beautiful" has also been around.

(If you've read my earlier article about red lipstick giving me my confidence back, you would know that I absolutely adore certain skincare/makeup products.)

However, I personally don't believe that I need to wear any kind of makeup to be considered "beautiful." And you don't, either.

I think that we, as a society, have seriously overvalued aesthetic beauty and undervalued the beauty that comes from being a decent, honest, genuine, and kind person. I believe that while makeup has an incredible and transformation-giving effect on women, (and men too, just for the record), that none of us honestly should depend on x, y, and z products to make us feel that we are beautiful, or that our self worth and sense of self should be tied up in how many likes a selfie of us in a full face of makeup get.

And quite frankly, there is so much to love about our makeup free, naturally glowing skin that so many of us hide, simply because society would love to tell us that we're not beautiful, or pretty, or worth very much at all if we don't use [insert new trendy skincare product here].

Well, excuse my French, but I'm calling bull.

It's not okay for any of us to think of ourselves as less than, simply because we're not following those crazy and crappy societal trends. In a culture where "Instagram perfect" pictures are the ideal that every woman, or man, is expected to look up to, I'd say it's pretty revolutionary to dare to bare a fresh-faced look.

No one has to ever feel the need to compulsively put on makeup to be considered "beautiful."

Because, in all reality, makeup can't measure the kind of person you are.

Makeup/skincare products can't measure your kindness, your generosity, your bravery in the face of adversity, or any other kickass quality that you might have. Makeup can't do that; only what's inside of you, if brought out for the world to see, can do that. And yes, I'm well aware of how cliché and "junior high preachy" that sounds.

So, I hope this article will possibly spark some introspective thoughts on what beauty means to you. I hope you start to think about the fact that who you are as a person is not defined by how "attractive" or "beautiful" someone else might tell you you are.

You define who you are as a person, nobody else has that power.
