  • this might sound super corny but sometimes i read shape magazine and it always makes me feel better...they have great advice in there that goes beyond 'working out' and what not. don't know if that's the answer you're looking for but aslo since my daughter was born (5mths ago) I've cut out all the negative people in my life. it may leave me with a few less friends but i feel WAY better about myself and how i'm raising her (my fam lives across the country and i'm a single mom so EVERYONE was giving advice/criticism, wanted or unwanted lol).

  • I wear my heart on my sleeve too but honestly you have to learn to ignore the bs. You need to beleive in yourself and love who you are. Its hard but as you get older you realise that.

    To boost my self esteem I make sure that I get my hair done every six week and I get my eyebrows waxed and I feel like a million dollars. Thats something I have been doing for the last year. Before that it was not a priority. Good luck and add me as a friend if you want to. Take care xx
