20 Little Ways To Remind Yourself You’re Beautiful Today

The world can be harsh and can often make you feel like everything you’re doing is wrong–and by extension, everything about you is wrong. I recently went through a period in my life where it was difficult to look in the mirror. Objectively I knew I had nothing to worry about, but part of me felt completely unworthy of people’s time, love, and affection. I convinced myself I wasn’t worthy because I was so focused on the negative in my life that every positive aspect I used to love about myself was snuffed out.

I know I’m not alone in feeling this way — when you’re depressed your entire sense of self is shot to shit and you have to scramble to get it back. If you’re currently feeling unworthy of love and affection, please let me be the first to remind you that those thoughts are untrue. You are worthy of love, and affection, and all the wonderful things in the world.

If you’re having a bad day, week, month, year, please take the time to read this list of 20 small ways to remind yourself every day that you’re the greatest person you’ll ever meet.
