Learn How Vera Found The Strength To Love Herself

"The strength to love ourselves, flaws and all, we give ourselves the power of self-acceptance.

Everyone struggles with insecurities. I love myself, but there are days I don’t…

When I wish that I looked different or had better fashion sense, I don’t know what that meant. Sometimes, I wish I was anyone other than who I am.

When these negative feelings creep into my mind, I have to remind myself that I am stronger than my insecurities. That what I consider to be my “flaws” are actually my biggest strengths!

My looks, my personality, make me undeniably who I am. And I don’t have to be ashamed of that.

Growing up, I wasn’t very confident. What I had not realised then is that everyone else felt the same way.

Everyone has their own battle to overcome and find self-acceptance. It took me a long time to say that I am confident, strong, and I love myself for who I am.

There is a power in being able to say that. To be unapologetically me. It just takes time. But that’s life. Some days are better than others. 

Everyone else is finding their way too.

I know it’s cliche, but there is power in self-acceptance.

Self-acceptance is about accepting your life for what it is, not for what you want it to be."
