12 Steps To Freedom

When we are on a self-love journey, we tend to do a lot of reflection on what got us to the point of not liking who we are. What events, people or experiences caused us to lose ourselves? While there are plenty of reasons to place blame on anything other than ourselves, the final choice is ours to make. We can continue to listen and believe others when they say, “You aren’t good enough” or “You’re the problem, not me” or “You aren’t worthy” or “All your problems are your own fault”. Or we choose to do different and despite lack of support, we conquer self-doubt and live amazing lives full of love, purpose and joy. We choose and learn to react differently to other people’s negativity and drama and despite what they believe to be true, we know our own truth and don’t seek validation from others. We know inside our worth.

Here, below, are twelve steps to follow to gain self-love and freedom to be the person you were always meant to be:

  1. If something feels wrong, then don’t do it. Walk away from people or situations that make you uncomfortable or go against your core values.
  2. Say exactly what you mean. Be clear and confident.
  3. Don’t be a people pleaser. You’ll lose yourself and you can’t please all of the people all of the time so focus on your needs and work on pleasing yourself.
  4. Trust your instincts. Your gut always knows best.
  5. Never speak bad about yourself. You teach others how to treat you by how you treat yourself.
  6. Never give up on your goals and dreams. Things may take time but the victory will be that much sweeter when you achieve it.
  7. Don’t be afraid to say NO. It’s ok to not do something if you don’t feel comfortable, if you don’t have the time or energy.
  8. Don’t be afraid to say YES. Sometimes trying something new is a good thing.
  9. Always be kind to yourself. Again, you’re teaching the other people in your life how you want to be treated.
  10. Learn to let go of the things you can’t control. You can’t change people if they don’t want to be changed so move on and away, as hard as it may be at the time. Your life will be simpler and more peaceful when you learn to pick your battles and let go of ones that aren’t worth fighting.
  11. Stay away from drama and negativity. That stuff just sucks you dry. Walk, no run, from anything or anyone that doesn’t bring you happiness.
  12. LOVE! Spread love. Lift people up. Do good. Be kind. Be helpful.

Be Pretty, Plus and Proud and take the time to travel the journey of self-love. It’s worth the trip to find true freedom and happiness. Choose to believe you are worthy, you are good enough, you are not the problem and your problems are not all your fault.
