Self Love Club

I have a few today that focus on different areas of #selflove.💙

1. Empathy of others & helping them find their self love. It’s easy to judge & maybe even shame people unknowingly for their actions when we often have no idea what has happened to bring them to the path they’re on today… which brings me to…

2. You might be one of those people. Use your trauma & hardships to make your stronger. Not a hard strong, but a soft one. A person that appreciates the little things because you’ve been through hell & reminding others of the beauty around us. Take your experience & use it to help others by loving them so deeply in a way that you believe people can & should be loved. Which brings me to…

3. There are still boundaries. While you own your story & are sharing parts, it’s still important to know that some people aren’t meant to be in each chapter of your life; especially if they’re hindering your growth or keeping you from finding your authentic self that we all deserve to be and love. It’s ok to step up & say you won’t take actions or reactions from those that aren’t there to support or try to understand your story & journey. It might be scary & really really hard. I KNOW it is. But that’s why we have this tribe of whole-whearted people who are there to walk with you. Who have went through hardships and pain & wouldn’t wish it upon anyone- but use them to help guide those on their path.

I’m definitely still on my path and slip up often. Self doubt. Fear of being not enough…and often even too much. Fear I am not “normal” & never will be. Fear that if I speak my truth and follow my heart I will lose those close to me & find a bumpy road that will seem too dark to walk through. But I also have days that I find these quotes, hear stories, talk to MY people, & thank God. Those are the days that keep me going & my belief strong that while this is a never ending road, it will get easier over time. As I weed out the toxic & accept myself wholly. I’m ALWAYS here to remind you of each of these things if you need to or listen if you need an ear. Love you ALL & have a great weekend! #selfloveclub ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🖤

My name is Lauren and I am yogi and marketing specialist in my mid-20s living in KC after spending a few years finding myself in SF. I love laughing, teaching, learning, Broad City & Workaholics (I tend to clump them together), cooking, trying new things (sounds cliché, but it's true!), writing, art of any kind, growing, bending (my mind and my body), and most importantly, my friends and family. I created The Loving Lotus as a space for me to unwind and share basically all of the above. I am so happy you made it here and would love to hear your thoughts on my page or just talk over a glass of wine or coffee. Feel free to contact me about either. Or both. 🙂
