When all is stripped away

I talk about loving the skin you’re in and accepting your flaws a lot, and most of the time, I believe it. But not always. We can all admit that the pressure to have to look good is real. And women tend to be hit the hardest. The beauty market thrives off selling us the lie that we’re not pretty enough, and it’s a lie that we so easily buy. I’ve found it’s a lot easier to conform to beauty standards but harder to arrive at a point of self-acceptance.

Love yourself less

I was once told, believer or not “we all worship something”. Whether that’s money, fame, family, education or ourselves. Our love and admiration go towards something. But at what point does self-love become toxic?

Love and Expectations

I’m sure I’m not the only one who imagined my boo would stand outside my window with a radio playing my favourite songs, write me love letters and we’d ride away in the sunset somewhere happily ever after. And can you blame me? We’ve bought a fantasy sold to us through most love songs, romance novels and romcoms. Whilst the romantic in me will never die, I’ve learnt that there is a big difference between having high standards and unreasonable expectations.

Gods love language

Love languages can help you and bae love each other better. In most healthy relationships, you want to do what makes the other person happy and vice versa. So naturally, when it comes to our relationship with God, the same should apply.

Truth be told

We often hear that it’s important to “stay true to yourself” and “speak your truth”. But let’s be honest, like most things, it’s a lot easier said than done. The hardest blog I’ve had to write so far, but by far my favourite. My unedited truth.

God, can you hear me?

Admit it. Like me, you’ve asked this before. During a breakup. An unsuccessful job application. Or if you’re just having a bad day. Frustrated and confused, we just want to know why. But what do we do when our questions remain unanswered?
