The Body Pledge

This blog is a commitment to increasing self-esteem, encouraging body acceptance and to reducing negative self talk.

It is a collection of photos from men and women, submitted to the blog from around the world that have taken the pledge to start accepting the skin they are in and to start realizing that their self-worth is not determined by their appearance.

If you have any statements about the pledge and encouraging body love, please submit it to the ask, however, if you have any questions, need someone to talk to, or want advice, please contact me on my main blog- happyhealthyhopeful.tumblr.com

What it means to take the pledge:
It doesn't implicate automatic, instant self-love and being happy in the world every day. It means that you will make an attempt to follow the points of the pledge and to realize that you are capable of body acceptance. Start now by submitting a photo and spreading the love.

So, I officially started this pledge a few hours ago and I already feel better. Thank you for helping me take the first step to self-confidence and self-acceptance. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

That is wonderful, and so are you!
I am so happy that you took the pledge and are on the right path towards self-acceptance. Remember this every time you are struggling. You are strong enough!

If I can take 20 minutes out of my day to make this graphic, you can take 20 seconds out of yours to argue with your negative thoughts. You are stronger than you think. Don’t start tomorrow, start today. You’re worth it!

I pledge to accept myself for who I am and love myself because SOCIETY IS WRONG. Everyone is beautiful and I need to realize that I am too.
