Advice from Josh

The message of worth is not only good for the feminine soul, but for the masculine one as well.

Harmed by sexual abuse as a child, I know deeply the mark of shame it can leave and how marred your sense of self can become. The journey to healing is difficult (mine is years in the making) still, I offer these two keys:

Light and Community

What is left in darkness will never heal. Don’t try to figure out if it was your fault. Someone needs to hear your story and you will need the support of loved ones to heal.

There is certainly no shame in that. 

- Want to share your story? Take a picture of yourself on Instagram, share your word-love, and hashtag #loveyoulovepeople. You really don’t know who you could impact while also showing someone that they are not alone. Loving yourself does not discriminate with gender, race, size, anything.

All it needs is you

Eating Disorder and Self Love

“I’m a crusader for being yourself and loving yourself, but I’ve found it hard to practice. I’ll be unavailable for the next 30 days, seeking treatment for my eating disorder… to learn to love myself again, exactly as I am.” -Ke$ha

We admire and support your decision Ke$ha. You are beautiful and learning to appreciate yourself is honorable. Keep going, keep fighting, and know you are worthy of love. #swlfamily
