The One Who's Healing by Committing to Herself

In 2019 I met a man who I thought was the love of my life. I didn't think it would ever be possible to find someone I liked and loved so much, who ticked every box. Six months into our relationship he bought me a ring—not an engagement ring or a promise ring, but a ring that sat on my pinky finger and symbolized love, teamwork, and trust. We spent a wonderful year together, but the day after Valentine's Day, 2020 he broke up with me. Taking off his ring was excruciating, and it made me realize how much meaning...

New member of the Fred and Far movement and MS warrior, KC from Maine recently shared with us her powerful journey into self love and out of an unhealthy engagement: "My choose myself moment happened this past summer, but I truly didn’t recognize it until many months later. In August 2020, I made an incredibly difficult decision to end my engagement. In that moment, I chose me above all other obligations and commitments. I have a tribe like no other and they stood by me while I struggled to stop feeling guilty about my choice. The guilt was overwhelming and I almost...

The One Who Lost Her B'Shert But Continues To Find Herself

My husband of 16 years passed away in a tragic boating accident in 2018 while alone on our boat in the British Virgin Islands. He left for the trip on December 19th and intended to return on the 24th for Christmas Eve. He passed away on December 20th, the morning after he arrived. He was the love of my life. We had known each other for about 30 years and it was always our plan to have a sailboat. I'm lucky we got to realize that dream. In 2000 we took sailing lessons and in 2002 we got married and...

The One Who Improved Her Whole Life by Loving Herself

I spent the majority of my life trying to keep people happy...everyone but myself.Last year, I realized that I was always the giver in my friendships and most of my relationships. And I finally decided to honor myself—to choose myself—by eliminating those one-sided relationships from my life. It was difficult, it was lonely at times, but it was imperative for my physical, emotional, and mental health. The day I decided to choose myself, my entire life changed. My outlook on life and even my performance at work and in school improved. My relationships with the people who TRULY cared about me...

The One Who Found Strength for Her Children Through Strengthening Herself

This past January, I was 5 months pregnant with my twin girls, working from home full time and also raising my (then) 2 year old son. Then the unthinkable happened: I was laid off from my job. Suddenly, we were left with only my husband's income for our rapidly growing family. Just a few weeks later, right before I was set to give birth to our twins, COVID shut everything down. And, in the midst of all that craziness, our twins were born a month early. They spent that month in NICU. So for a month, I drove an hour there...

The One Who Fought For Herself... and Won

I choose to love myself everyday. My Self Love Pinky Ring signifies all the struggles I have had and the strength I have needed to overcome them. I had a rough start in life. I was born in the 70s to drug addicts and a mom who suffers from depression. Homeless for a large portion of my childhood, abused by my parents, brother, and older men, I lived in a constant state of fear. And when I emerged from that upbringing, my self worth and value was nearly gone. It’s taken me 43 years to fight back and win against all odds. I am...

The One Who Wasn't Defined By What Happened To Her

  Almost a year ago, I was drugged and raped in a foreign country. I began to feel defined by what happened to me and it made me feel unworthy of love. Then, by accident, I came across the Self Love Pinky Ring. Fred and Far and the self love movement - helping women love themselves - spoke directly to me. Thanks to learning about self love, I realized that despite what had happened to me, despite how terrible I felt about myself every day, I was worthy of love. More specifically, I was worthy of love from ME just for being...

The One Who Made a Pinky Promise with Her Daughter

When I came across the Self Love Pinky ring, I fell in love with everything about it... During this pandemic, negativity is a natural reaction. But I chose to be positive:  to spread love and positivity within myself and others. It must have worked because my 13 year-old daughter ALSO wanted to choose self love, so I ordered us both Pinky Rings. When we got them, we made a promise together: to feel whole, worthy, and loved within ourselves and to give that same love to each other. Thank you to the beautiful Melody and Fred and Far for reminding us all the...
