The One Who Conquered

"In the past 18 months I: received a late-in-life autism diagnosis, lost my dog to cancer and found out my husband is leaving me. I've shouldered the brunt of a loved-one's depression while trying to sort out how to address and manage my autism. I've had my heart shattered in numerous ways, to a painful depth I never knew possible. I've been betrayed in ways I took for granted would never happen, and saw my life spinning out of control with no discernible way to stop it. But somehow the chaos became calm, the fear became resolve, the sadness became...

The Intentional One

“I received the self love pinky ring a month ago as a heartfelt 24th birthday present from my parents and brother. A few months ago, I got this "go be it" tattoo as a reminder to be who I want to be and to do what I want to do. To not let insecurities and self doubt get in the way. This self love ring goes hand in hand with that. My @fredandfar ring is a daily reminder to be intentional in choosing myself, to put myself first, to know that I am enough and that I am worth it....

The One Who Empowers Herself

"The ring I wear on my pinky finger is a self love ring. Ever since I got it, it has helped me through the hard times I faced this year. Before I had this ring, I did not honor, love or choose myself on daily basis. I neglected myself and felt like there was nothing love about myself everything I tried to do or fix ended up worse. The toughest part was sitting down and thinking to myself what is it I could write down that I love about myself? An hour later the page was still blank. And then,...

The One Who's Finding Her True Identity

"I recently finished a treatment program for an Eating disorder. My disorder has taken so much away from me, especially my true identity. I’m beginning to learn who I am, how to take care of myself and my needs, and most importantly how to love myself and be kind to myself. I purchased my ring for a constant reminder to myself that I am worth it, and I have a life worth living."

The One Who Knows It's Perfectly Okay to Be Imperfect

"So my self love journey began about a year and a half ago after I moved into my first house and was once again living alone. I soon realized I was sad despite reaching this amazing goal of buying a house. I felt alone. And as far as I could see I was alone. What made it worse was that I didn’t like who I was alone with...ME. I didn’t like who I was, I hated my body, and I couldn’t see how anyone else could like me either so I stayed alone. It was a blog that had shared...

The One Whose Self Love Fuels Greatness

"I moved out on my own a year ago after my mom passed away. You could say I lost both my parents at once- one physically, and then  the other mentally. I put on a strong face and went through the motions on a daily basis without trying to feel too much. I lost myself in the process.     While trying to kick habits that were tough to rid myself of, I began practicing small acts of self love every day. I got into yoga and exercise. I finally got the job I've been waiting so many years to secure. I...

The One Who Defies Society

"I am very happy and honored to be part of this self love movement. I am 28 years old, single, no kids, and for 10 years my life has been dictated by my work. I have never loved myself from childhood. It is not easy to love yourself when you are not like the society wants, I was little bit "tomboy", the good friend, I have always been known for putting other people first. As life progresses, I lack love (even if I have the best parents!). So why don't I begin by loving myself? When I saw the Fred and...

The One Who Discovered Her ME

"Just over a year ago I started a venture to heal my PCOS naturally through lifestyle changes and supplementation. Anyone who knows PCOS can tell you, it is like an all-out assault on your femininity and your peace of mind. Your best chances of healing the symptom-causing issues at the root come from a painfully clean diet, exercise that doesn't over stress your body, and reducing stress in your life (also certain supplements that can help). I was in a relationship at the time that had become just too much for me, and I had to let it go. At...

The One Who Is Finding Her Self Worth

"When my husband (most likely) cheated and left me for another women, then my Grandfather passed away the next week, I thought I'd never dig myself out of the hole of sadness I felt. Then I came across Fred and Far and loved the message and knew it was exactly what I needed.  I wear my ring every day to remind myself that even though I may not feel it, I AM worth it. And tonight, I'm going on my first date!"

The One Who Found Her Inner Strength

“Choosing self love for me means asking myself what the healthiest choice for ME is. It means being gentle with myself on the hard days and proud of the easier days. It means setting boundaries. It means asking for help and not trying to do everything myself. I purchased my first self love pinky ring shortly after I was sexually assaulted by a coworker and in the ongoing process of therapy, for major depressive disorder and anxiety. My ring symbolized surviving in a huge way for me. Unfortunately, I lost my first ring and have since purchased the mini self...

The One Who Put Her Needs First

“I'm a people pleaser at heart and always have been. It was only over the past year where I made a promise to choose self love in every aspect of my life - physically, emotionally and spiritually. I realized if I put everyone's needs in front of my own there will be nothing left of me! It's a learning experience every day but I continue to try to be the best version of myself with self love and (spreading love!) My two dogs Meeko and Marvin would agree!” - Erica

The One With The Bright Future

“Self-acceptance has been hard for me. For a really, really long time, I (stupidly) allowed myself to be used emotionally and physically by a boy (man is too good a noun for him, even though we’re now both in our late twenties), with whom I thought I was in love. I was young. I was blinded by my feelings. I kept thinking that he kept coming back because there had to be something there, he had to feel something for me, too. I also didn’t think I deserved or could ever do any better. When he moved across the country...
