I Create Uplifting Illustrations That Encourage Self-Love (112 Pics)

Feeling sad and alone most of my life was the inspiration to create these unique illustrations. Struggling with depression since I was a teen it took me years to unlearn a lot of ideas that I was socialised to believe, many of which were negatively impacting my mental health. I’m still figuring out how to be alive in this world but sharing my thoughts and realisations with others has proven to be a very rewarding process. The more I learn about how to live and love more fully the more I like to share my thoughts and realisations with my online community Recipes For Self Love. I’ve been running my Instagram account for about two years now and have built a following of over 445k people from around the world. I want to continue growing my online community while spreading awareness and truths that I found to have helped me a lot.

This applies to both romantic and platonic relationships!. . . .

Self preservation! Often in life one needs to put oneself first, and there’s nothing wrong with this. You need to look after yourself and protect yourself, and this doesn’t mean you’re a selfish or bad person 💖. . . .

Don’t sacrifice too much for your job, don’t lose sight of yourself and your worth in the face of pressure from work. You are replaceable in any position, remember that no job is worth damaging your physical, mental health, valuable relationships and happiness. Capitalism doesn’t care for us, it’s just not worth it. .

Sex is a beautiful way to explore human connection, intimacy, vulnerability, and pleasure. Sex positivity is about helping people be totally happy with their sex lives whatever that may look like. Sex positivity is about encouraging people to embrace who they are, what they’re into and to explore in a safe, consensual, fun and shame free way. @sexeducation @netflixuk .

Society as lead us to believe that our ultimate goal is to be beautiful because according to the white supremacist capitalist patriarchy beauty = value. Beauty standards exist, they are narrow and limited, some people fall into the category of what is considered “beautiful” and some don’t. The truth is we don’t need to be beautiful!!! It’s not the most important in life – we are so much more than that. Let us be weird, ugly, gross, have bad taste. It doesn’t mean we’re any less amazing, valuable or worthy of love. . . #recipesforselflove #support #love #life #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies

With Halloween around the corner think about how cultural appropriation reduces entire cultures, histories and heritages of marginalized people groups to fashion accessories and caricature-like costumes. It’s offensive and not cool. Reminder to all white people to stay away from dressing up as any non-white stereotypes this Halloween. .

Sharing your emotions takes courage, it often brings you closer to the people you’re sharing with. Sometimes people make you feel weird when sharing but maybe it’s not you that’s weird but them who feel discomfort because of your vulnerability. Try to practice sharing your emotions when you feel compelled to, perhaps remain conscious of who you chose to be open with.

We often feel the need to be nice, since we run the risk of being labeled “a bitch” for exercising characteristics like boldness, assertiveness or critical thinking. It’s also often safer to be nice and exercise de-escalating tactics in order to reduce conflict in a potentially violent situations. Your safety comes first of course but in ordinary situations remember that you don’t always have to be nice. If you’re low on energy, keep it for yourself 💓. . . #recipesforselflove #niceforwhat #youdonthavetobenice #beyourself #bodypositivity #allbodiesaregoodbodies #nice

Life is often difficult and confusing , you’re not responsible for how you feel about the things that happen to you and around you. You can’t control your feelings, all you can do is decide what do to with them when they arrive. Try not to run away from your feelings, even the ones that don’t feel good. Try to remember that you are not your feelings and your feelings are not always reality.

The patriarchy makes us all think that being beautiful is the most desirable thing as a woman. Even within body positive movements the idea of affirming beauty or “beauty in flaws” is prevalent. Here’s the thing, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL! It’s a social construct that doesn’t really exist and it’s a load of shit invented to oppress women and distract them from achieving greatness. . .

It’s still fat shaming! Everyone’s body is different and you cannot tell someone’s health by looking at them, ALSO, even if someone is unhealthy it doesn’t make them a bad person or any less worthy of love. Moral of the story… don’t talk about other people’s bodies. . .

IT AFFIRMS UNREALISTIC BEAUTY STANDARDS and supports the idea that some bodies are better than others. Also there are many reasons for weight loss, some of which are complicated and drawing attention to someone’s weight loss can be a micro aggression. Financial pressure resulting not having money to buy food will affect one’s weight, if someone has an eating disorder or is suffering from an illness that has lead to weight loss, drawing attention to it might be triggering. There are many ways to compliment someone without talking about their weight 💓. . .#recipesforselflove

The White Savior Industrial Complex conceptualised by Teju Cole is personified when a person of privilege (usually white) picks a cause they know little about and insists on solutions that inevitably can cause more harm than good. Here is how to not be a white savior. .
.
Think about your motives. Look at your local community, town or city. There are issues of poverty and inequality in towns and cities everywhere. Start your advocacy work there, be a community activist. .
.
Educate yourself on the struggles of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour (BIPOC) face in your own community, town, regionally and nationally. Learn about immigration and immigrant rights. .
.
Read books and literature that are written by BIPOC authors, as well as African, Central and South American, Caribbean and Polynesian, and South East Asian authors. Talk to your family and white friends about these issues. .
.
Educate yourself about colonialism, post-colonial policies, brinkmanship, World Bank and IMF austerity policies towards the Southern Hemisphere, multinational corporations abuse of resources and people of the Southern Hemisphere, the unequal trade imbalances and tarrifs between the Western World and African, Central & South American & S.E. Asian Countries. Get to know the community of immigrants that live in your town, and just LISTEN and LEARN. .
.
Find local organizations that are doing CO-CREATIVE/SYMBIOTIC work communities and support them either financially or with a specific skill-set that they need and you have. – words by @nowhitesaviors .

The idea of ‘virginity’ is rooted in heteronormativity and religious tradition that pretty much sees women as objects and child bearers. There are many ways to have sex that don’t include penis in vagina. This misconception excludes a myriad of other forms of sexual acts, is heteronormative and also can minimize the experiences of sexual assault survivors by questioning their victimisation if there was no ‘actual penetration’. As for the hymen being a representation of virginity, this is a load of horseshit biologically speaking, also not all girls have vaginas/hymens 🤷🏻‍♀️. . . .

Casual sex isn’t wrong but it’s not for everyone. Often internalized sex shame stops women from living their best sex lives, past sex related trauma can be an issue affecting one’s sexual behaviour, casual sex may just hold no enticement, or simply being asexual or on the spectrum will affect one’s drive. You don’t need to be having a lot of sex in order to be liberated, but for some women it is how they exercise their agency. Sex positive feminism is about helping folks be totally happy with their sex lives, whatever that may look like. Love sex; have lots of it, or don’t, but whatever you do support other women’s choices and don’t contribute to the slut shaming culture we live in. . . #recipesforselflove #sex #sexpositive #life #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies

In work and relationships, it hurts to hear someone doesn’t want you or your ideas & it can really knock your self worth. Don’t let it get you down, the world has a way of working things out.

Oh and btw things that you might not think affect you actually do. For example most men don’t realize that they also suffer from the patriarchy. Toxic masculinity is a dangerous by-product of the patriarchy and restricts and punishes men for deviating from a particular idea of masculinity. This hurts them, and in turn they hurt us. It is in all of our best interest to rid this world of oppressive power structures! .

“Sex work is one of the few spaces in my life where I feel and experience my value and worth. It is not because of my clients, but because as a dominatrix, BDSM has become a powerful site of resistance for me under capitalism. My work fulfills and sustains me in many ways. It’s also important to move towards a comprehensive understanding and acceptance of all the beautiful / complicated / difficult kinds of sex work. All sex work is real work and we deserve validation and support.” – Words by @missvchicago. Thank you for the work you do.

Women’s relationship with food is notoriously complex. Food and eating can be a cause of trauma for so many women. Paying too much attention to food and eating, albeit when trying to be ‘healthy’, can be triggering for even the most body positive person. Building a better relationship with food is a difficult and ongoing journey especially when constantly being bombarded with external pressure and internal guilt. Although difficult and ongoing, this journey is one that is most definitely worth the effort. Love your body, love your food, it’s fuel to keep you being the amazing person that you are! . . . #recipesforselflove #beyourself #food #eating #eatingdisorder #recovery #allbodiesaregoodbodies

No two of us are the same and that’s a wonderful thing. Unfortunately society tricks us into thinking we should all be the same and look/be a certain way. We have to actively reject this thinking and celebrate what makes us unique. It’s often easier said than done but is life changing when you get it right. . . .

There is so much pressure on women to have clear skin. Everyone’s body is different just like some bodies are fat and some are thin, some people are prone to oily skin or acne. This topic is seldom spoken about within body positive discourse and people with ‘bad skin’ are heavily underrepresented. Similarly to fat shaming, people make judgments about those who have acne, for example – assuming they’re dirty or eat badly. People are sometimes classist too, expecting those with acne to seek out often expensive treatments that many don’t have access to. Don’t hate people with pimples! You can be beautiful with acne! Acne doesn’t = ‘bad skin’! . . .#selflove #selfcare #skin #loveyourself #lovetheskinyourein #bodypositive #smashthepatriarchy #women #effyourbeautystandards #love #fuckthepatriarchy #acne #feminism #feminista #feminist #zine #issue #illustration #digital #drawing #adobe #graphic #art #positive

Gaslighting is a super manipulative form of psychological abuse, intended to make someone doubt their own perception or sanity and is often used against women by their partners. No, You’re not “crazy” or “imagining it” or “creating drama” as is commonly what women are told they’re doing when they exercise emotional maturity and articulate their feelings of dissent. Learn to identify if you experience gaslighting in any of your relationships and call that person out for using this shitty tactic/get out of that relationship . . . #recipesforselflove #support #love #life #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies

The patriarchy makes us all think that being beautiful is the most desirable thing as a woman. Even within body positive movements the idea of affirming beauty or “beauty in flaws” is prevalent. Here’s the thing, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE BEAUTIFUL! It’s a social construct that doesn’t really exist and it’s a load of shit invented to oppress women and distract them from achieving greatness. . .#recipesforselflove #youarewonderful #fuckbeautystandards #beyourself #allbodiesaregoodbodies #youdonthavetobebeautiful

If you care too much about someone’s approval you become their captive, you give them power over you. Rather focus on your goals and how you feel about yourself and don’t concern yourself with what others think. . . #recipesforselflove #support #love #life #bodypositive #approval #allbodiesaregoodbodies

We all live our lives shaping our identities, being conscious of the people we are and how we project ourselves into the world. Often we are faced with situations where we find ourselves saying “this is just not me” and that’s fine, but sometimes it’s good to shake that identity up a bit and try something new or different. You can be who ever you want. Don’t let the person you think you are hold you back. Allow yourself to surprise yourself. . . .

You’re never going to not make mistakes. Remain conscious of how failure is often the best teacher. As long as you keep learning from your mistakes, keep making them. . .

We don’t get to choose whether or not we want to be involved in what’s happening in the world around us – we are. Even silence is support for something.

This can be such a difficult thing to do. We (some more than others) would like to control everything in our lives. Of course it’s impossible and can be pretty damaging and anxiety causing. Try your best to recognise the things that are out of your control and learn to let them go. . . #recipesforselflove #support #love #positivity #bodypositive #allbodiesaregoodbodies

It’s easy to develop a dependency when the world is constantly wearing you down. Not all women have the same access to support or the capacity to withstand the onslaught. Love and support women with addiction. . . .

So often we’re made to feel like we’re somehow wrong for being or looking the way we do. Try to disrupt those thoughts when they come to you and remind yourself that there is no wrong way to look or be if it’s you. . .

You don’t have to be fearless to be courageous, the two are not mutually exclusive. We often spend so much of our lives in fear. Fear of rejection, fear of failure and maybe even fear of success.

There’s such a huge stigma attached to STIs that stems from ignorance. Having an STI doesn’t make you unclean or gross. Break the stigma attached to STIs, it perpetuates slut shaming culture. People with STIs are no less worthy of love, sex and happiness. . . .
