—Erin Brown, on learning body hatred at a young age from her female role models
Think for a moment about the reality of this statement. It’s stunningly accurate.
The message in this video is so critical, because like Erin, so many of us have set out on our fitness journey with intention of “fixing” ourselves. We think:
I’ll love myself when…
I’ll be good enough when…
I’ll be worthy when…
But the problem is, we don’t realize that loving ourselves has nothing to do with the weight on the scale, the size of our jeans, or the way our stomach looks.
Because the truth is when you get “there,” “there” is not enough. You still want more, you still want better, you still want different, and you still believe that you’re not enough.
At Girls Gone Strong we believe that the foundation of your fitness journey has to be recognizing that you are enough, as you are right now, with no strings or numbers attached.
This is an incredibly important topic, and your support and opinion matter and help us get information like this to more women.
When you don’t feel too confident about yourself, it makes it that much easier to let other’s comments and opinions affect you. There isn’t much you can do about what other people think, say, or do. You can, however, work on building up your own confidence and live in a way that aligns with the type of person who you want to be.
We are committed to delivering high-quality information about living your happiest and healthiest life to as many women as possible.
