Discover Your Inner Self

Currently listening to Lovecrimes by Frank ocean


Hey Lemon drop!! If you're an avid follower of my blog, you'll know I started a mini #SelfLove series. (Here and here, check it out)
It's super easy for us to chant to one another "oh love yourself, be content with who you are." But we all know that it's not
that easy to love ourselves, especially when there are things we'd like to change.

In my honest opinion before you can truly love yourself, you have to know your self, "your inner self". Know that you are a human and its okay to not be entirely happy all the time. You should be able to cry when you feel like it and are entitled to your emotions, just don't let it get out of hand. Its better to realize you feel a certain way about something and search for a solution than to pretend and let it eat you up. This one I'm learning, slowly but surely. In unlearning what you were told, shedding societal inflicted guilt, you're going to need to be one with who you are on the inside.

There are some ways to discover who you really are, you're likes and dislikes etc
1. Keep a journal and write your goals and aspirations, your dreams for yourself. Psst keep it off guard from outside eyes. Be painfully honest.
2. Spend some alone time with yourself
3. Remember the things that make you different from others.
4. Redefine and Re-vamp yourself:
5. Have a close companion you can confide in.

These are my tips on self discovery, I'm still in the process of unlearning some things and on becoming the person I want to be. So far these are some things that have helped me understand myself more. Hope they help you too nd if you have other ideas let me know in the comment box below

Let's keep in touch

  1. Wow, we're in sync. I wrote about something similar on the blog. I love what you said about letting go of societal inflicted guilt, that's really important. There are so many things we need to unlearn as we grow. I find that spending time with myself and self-evaluation all help me. Nice post. xx

  2. Girl you nailed it correctly, learning to love oneself is the toughest reality for every human being but it gives inner peace when one can do this. Indeed self-acceptance must be a virtue. I love your blog, it's so minimal and pretty. Thank you for visiting my blog.
