When you take care of yourself, everything else falls into place.
When you honor your body’s needs, respect its hunger and fullness, adequately and consistently nourish yourself, and move your body in a way that is fun and feels good, your weight goes to its unique, healthy set point.
When you treat yourself with compassion and kindness, you lessen your hurt and make way for healing.
When you challenge the negative thoughts and beliefs that no longer serve your life, you find freedom from your inner demons.
When you let go of negative people who make you feel bad and cause you pain, you make room for new, better people to enter your life.
When you see yourself as someone with inherent worth, carry yourself with confidence, and embrace who you are with acceptance and love, you draw people to you, make connections, and create lasting friendships.
When you reach out to others during times of struggle, you give yourself the opportunity to get support and have your needs met.
When you set boundaries with people, use your voice, speak your truth, and refuse to compromise your own wellbeing for the sake of someone else, you create healthy interpersonal relationships.
When you give yourself permission to be who who you are, do what you love, and live in a way that feels conducive to your values, goals, and dreams, you find happiness.
Healing is less about trying to control external things—how other people act, your weight, your appearance, how people perceive you—and more about focusing on the internal—getting your needs met, treating yourself as a friend, adopting a positive attitude, and embracing who you are.
All the things you’re fighting to improve will work themselves out if you simply start taking care of yourself.
Give yourself permission to take this step.
Trust that everything you need to make the changes you desire already lies within you.
Reach down deep and access your inner strength.
Your healing begins when you start replacing your self-hatred with self-love and care.

About The Movement:
My name is Daniell, and I am the creator of the Internal Acceptance Movement (I. A.M.)
Need support? Have a question?
The Internal Acceptance Movement is an online space that advocates self-acceptance, healthy body image, recovery from self-destructive behaviors and addictions, and the acceptance of all people, regardless of what they look like, who they identify as, what they have been through, and where they come from. I. A.M. is a space that offers support to those battling their inner demons and strength to continue fighting when all hope seems to be gone.
I. A.M. represents the idea that as human beings, we aren't defined by anything external, such as our weight, appearance, body shape, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, clothing choices, income, occupation, or background. But that instead, it's our internal qualities--our character and attitude, our passions and dreams, our soul and spirit, our heart and capacity to love, our goals and morals, and the way in which we treat others--that are truly self defining.
Whether you're battling an eating disorder, self-harm, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, PTSD, low self-esteem, anxiety, self-hating thoughts, poor body image, or any other mental health condition or self-destructive behavior, I. A.M. exists to remind you that you are NOT alone in how you feel or what you're going through; that it's okay to not be okay, and that you don't have to face this pain alone; that things can and will get better; that healing and recovery are possible; that there is nothing wrong with who you are; the who you are is enough; and that you are deserving of happiness, love, and acceptance, always.
I'm here if you need me: whether it's support, someone to vent to, a question, or you just want to say hi--know that this is a safe place and that you aren't alone. If I don't respond immediately, know that I'm not ignoring you. I will message you back at my earliest convenience. If you have an emergency or feel that you want to hurt yourself, please, please call 911. I'm not a therapist or a mental health professional of any kind. If you're in danger, you need to ask for help from people who can adequately support you. Sending you love: Daniell
