In the nature of what TRUE Image Group is all about, we would be remiss if we didn’t stress the importance of mental health. No matter what clothes, accessories, or makeup we put on you, no amount of strategic styling will make you feel happy about yourself. It’s important to understand that in order to value your physical appearance, you have to feel good internally. This means that if you lack confidence, you will need to get to the root of why you don’t feel confident. Digging inside of yourself will help you uncover a new level of beauty that even (as good as we are at our job), TRUE, can’t help with.
Good News though!
Although we can’t help you in that particular area, we can offer tips for how you can begin to heal from the inside out, so that you can feel and look good. These three steps are what we here at TRUE value for our agency.
Spend time with yourself, by yourself.
Spending time with yourself can help you discover a whole new type of love for yourself. Will it be uncomfortable to sit at a dinner table by yourself? HECK YES! But discomfort helps you build confidence and resilience. Spending time with yourself can also help you fall in love with you. You might begin to laugh at your own jokes instead of seeking approval from others. You can show up for yourself dressed in whatever YOU feel sexy in, because it’s for you. Showing up for yourself is the new form of self love and self-actualization.
Self-reflecting can involve journaling or meditation. Both of these are options that allow you to be quiet and reflect on what and why you feel the way you feel. Reflecting upon your day or week can help you identify moments and emotions that you would otherwise just suppress or look over. Journaling can help you acknowledge past and present events. Meditating can cause you to sit with your emotions and process your feelings, good and bad. We promise that it’s not as scary as it sounds.
TRUE is a huge advocate of therapy. We believe that therapy is a necessity for healing, just like medicine is essential for a cold and food is for living. Therapy can help you along your healing journey and unmask a lot of unprocessed thoughts.
TRUE is here with you.
Whether you are just beginning or continuing your healing journey, TRUE Image Group is here with you. While we love to style our clients, we also love a good pairing of both looking good on the outside and feeling good on the inside.
