Love and Respect Yourself

Love and Respect Yourself

OL ©

How many people in this world respect and love themselves? Not many people can say that they do because they are so self-conscious that they find it very hard to love themselves. If that state of mind is left to continue, it will break them down more than they are already. Overcoming the negative feelings that you have about yourself can be very hard to do and some people find it very difficult to let go of the negatives that they have. How can you love someone when you can’t even love and respect yourself? When you don’t love and respect yourself, the person whom you say you love will hurt and misuse your love for them. That why it’s so important to first learn to love yourself and respect who you are because there is no one else like you. Continue reading

Living in a Sexualised Society

Introduction: The Effects on Young Girls 

I have recently found myself contemplating how my upbringing and the way I see myself today would possibly be different if I was born in the year 2000 rather than in 1993. I look at young girls now who are barely entering their teenage years and wonder how it appears that so much has changed since I was at the age of twelve, wearing clothes that my mum had bought for me and no make-up. My cousin is now at the age of twelve where wearing the latest fashion labels, hair extensions and false nails is a big part in constructing her image. Although to my family we look so alike, I have found that being seven years apart we could not be more different. I feel that living in a sexualised society plays a major role in influencing young girls to convey a certain sexual maturity and portray an image far beyond their years. Adult sexual motifs are seeping into products and clothing targeted at children so much so that it appears the gap between what is produced for children and for adults is being pulled closer and closer together. Not only is the merchandise aimed at young girls pushing the boundaries of “sexiness”, but the images of women we see in our day-to-day lives, in particular through advertising and music videos, emote a certain provocative and sexual allure that can in turn have many harmful physical and mental effects on young girls.

Finding Your Feet in Life

Finding your Feet in Life

The journey towards healing, wholeness and becoming who we really are is often about unlearning the things that we have learned that have held us back throughout our lives. It requires learning to see ourselves through the eyes of compassion, and forgiving ourselves for our mistakes. It requires us to be kind to ourselves. Only when we can offer our own self those things can we offer these things to others. If we are harsh upon our self, then we will be harsh towards others. Continue reading

10 Ways to Create a Strong Relationship

by Lynne Newman

“We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” ~Sam Keen

Before I married my wonderful husband, I dated a lot of men. For most of my 20s (and even my early 30s) I had a perfect fairy-ideal of what romantic love was, probably because I was an actress and I loved drama back then.

It took years for me to realize a relationship is not a romance movie.

At some point in our lives, we may believe that love should be like the kind of romance we see portrayed in films, television, and novels.

For some reason, I always thought my romantic relationships were less if I did not experience this kind of fairy-tale relationship. Maybe this is why I kept meeting frogs. Continue reading
