Love yourself with your whole ass

Updated: Jul 22, 2021

As a recovering hyper-achiever, pleaser, and perfectionist, it was a BIG DEAL to learn how to do things less intensely in my life. ⁣I used to try to do so many things all at once, too many things, that the multitasking made me terribly inefficient and beyond exhausted. I put so much of my ass into everything I did, I ended up doing everything half-assed. ⁣When I was trying to be a badass at everything, I was rewarded with money and accomplishments, but left lonely and longing for meaningful connection to others. Most heart-wrenching was the loss of connection to myself. ⁣

It’s ok to do some things half-assed to protect your sanity, like spending less time on one’s appearance, or keeping up with the news. ⁣But it’s not ok to go half-ass on what matters most: your sustainable well-being. ⁣

You matter. ⁣

You can’t show up as a fully authentic human if you lose meaningful connection with yourself. So don’t be an ass or love yourself with half an ass!⁣

Wanna know what’s truly badass?⁣ Loving yourself. ⁣

Why is this a badass concept? Because it’s countercultural and requires courage. ⁣It’s a radical concept in a culture that focuses on external validation and sacrifice of the self. ⁣

Here’s the most badass part:⁣ When you start loving yourself with your WHOLE ass, you won’t believe how much EASIER your whole life becomes!⁣

(Why the jellyfish? No real relation to this post. I don’t think jellyfish even have asses, do they? I just threw them on here because I think they’re cute. Amiright? And what a bummer: no jellyfish emoji! Yet…)
