For an instant emotional uplift, embrace the idea that you are fine this very moment, just as you are. You don’t need to loose weight, make more money, dress better, move elsewhere or be more fit in order to be okay. Stop striving for a moment, allow yourself the pleasure of liking yourself, as is, and feel the weight lift from your shoulders. There are a lot of messages out there telling you that you need to be different from who you are right now in order to feel better. Don’t believe them. You’re not the problem,

The messages are.
