I remember going through and writing a bunch of affirmations on my mirror when I was younger. They went something like “you are beautiful, I love my body, I can do anything”. I would say these in my head, but it just felt like BS. When I would repeat it, my lizard brain would say, “You are fat, you are not as smart as those other guys, you can’t do that, who are you to think you can do that”.
When I started doing this work on myself, I realized that I had to meet myself where I was at. To change the negative thoughts, I had to have more neutral thoughts. So, when I had a negative thought, I would replace it with, “I have a body, I produced a human from my body, I have accomplished things, I have done hard things”. These were thoughts I could believe.
What thoughts can you believe? Can you allow a negative thought, know that it will be there but then think something more neutral or positive? How would that change your feelings and then change how you show up?

PS. For those of you who have produced a human, you PRODUCED a human with that body, that is a miracle. For real, a human came out of your body, just sit with that for a minute…
