Having a conversation about self-confidence for me is difficult, because for many years, I’ve struggled with insecurity. Words can have an effect, especially online. That’s why I’m thrilled to be partnering with Dove to share the message of their #SpeakBeautiful initiative.
The amount of negative language, body-shaming and bullying online is reaching an epidemic. Our words are powerful. Girls are especially noticing the impact this can have; did you know that 52% of girls think that negativity they see online damages their confidence*?
Even in the blogosphere, I’ve seen (and received) many examples of hurtful comments; easily made when hiding behind the anonymity of the internet. I’ve made it a goal to make my online conversations and social-media messages positive. And that’s why I’m supporting Dove’s #SpeakBeautiful campaign.
Dove is on a mission to support building self-esteem in 20 million girls by 2020. Dove is encouraging women and girls to change the conversation and make social media a more positive place for beauty and body confidence.
You can be part of the #SpeakBeautiful movement, too. The next time you head to Target, pick up any three of your favorite Dove products and get a free #SpeakBeautiful bracelet. Then, every time you type, you’ll look down and be reminded to put a positive message out there.
I hope you’ll join Dove and make your own positive impact. Change the conversation and #SpeakBeautiful!
