Tahira Kashyap Khurrana teaches us a valuable lesson in self-love
It’s not narcissistic, it’s necessary
No matter how hard, and with how many memes the Internet preaches self-love, our internal dialogue tends to lean towards harsh exchanges, packaged in a self-improvement filter.
I can’t wear sleeveless — my arms are too jiggly. God, I hate how big my nose is — it looks like a pakoda with extra besan on it. Why do I have such an obsessive personality? I wish I could be a chill person.
You’re probably familiar with at least one, if not all three of these trains of thought. Whether it’s societal conditioning, genetic leanings or just personality traits, we have a tendency to criticise ourselves.
Which is why, we decided that instead of celebrating just love this February, we will celebrate self-love. Think of all the things you say about yourself on a daily basis (or even think) and ask — ‘Would I say these things to someone I love?’
The answer is usually a resounding no. The only difference is we tend to forget that even you, are a person that you should love.
Think of this video as a reminder of sorts. On those days when even your favourite dress makes you feel unattractive, or when no matter how many self-help articles you get click-baited into reading on the internet, your mood is terrible.
Let Tahira Kashyap Khurrana remind you that no matter how jiggly your arms are — those are the the things that help you wave goodbye to toxic people.
Your body is worthy of respect, dignity, and endless love. Watch the video for her lessons in self-love and special messages she has for her children.
