You Are Never Responsible for Others’ Emotions - by Chelsey Luren

As a recovering people pleaser, the hardest realization to come to is that: 

It’s my job to trigger people.

I’m not here to be liked.
I’m here to help you become the best version of yourself.

The 3 Things Perfectionism Kills - by Chelsey Luren

The need to be perfect used to permeate every possible aspect of my life. Within my family, school, friends, religion, job, and every possible interaction I had in the world - it all had to be immaculate.

Want to know what the key to unlocking your entire self love journey is?

The biggest factor in being able to live in alignment with our best, most vibrant selves (the version of you that doesn’t struggle with a lack of confidence, hating her body, is constantly searching for the next diet, who’s life is ruled by what she’s eating, worrying about what others think of her all the time, or wishes she could simply love herself), is…

How to Feel Confident Without Going on a Diet - by Chelsey Luren

Confidence, self love, and body positivity are incredible tools.

Telling women they are good enough, worthy of what they desire, and that they are allowed to love themselves as they are is 100% fact. I am a huge advocate of this, and stand firmly behind this message.

The entire movement of body positivity is one that was invaluable to me when I was first beginning my recovery from anorexia over 8 years ago.

But here’s the thing that’s not really being talked about in it…

Why Healing the Relationship With Ourselves is a Privilege | Vancouver Boudoir Photographer + Body Image Coach

Healing our body image issues and the relationship we have with ourselves is not work, but a privilege.

This realm of personal development - where we heal the relationship with ourselves, mend our body image woes and shift from low self esteem into radiant confidence - there are a lot of time, effort, energy, and resources are involved.  

To dive in and shift our lives takes a willingness to be uncomfortable, to face truths we may have ignored, to stand in places of our shame in order to heal.

More often than not, this is…
