There are two things we know for sure about Lucy Hale: Girl is all about practicing self-love – and she’s super dedicated to the cause.
Over on Instagram last week, the actress showed her followers a genius trick she uses to constantly remind herself of her worth.
“I got this tattoo recently as a symbol of self-love,” she wrote. “And that’s what this year has been about… being alone (but not lonely), not settling and truly finding my inner light & loving who I am.”
Designed by French artist Frédéric Forest, her new ink shows a woman with her arms draped across her chest like a heart. The idea is simple: she can look to the tattoo – which adorns her upper arm- whenever she wants to feel empowered.
“I am so happy with the place I’m in and unbelievably grateful for the overflowing love I have in my life from my family and friends,” she added in the caption.
Her fans we’re clearly inspired by her words, with many leaving supportive comments on the post.
“Thank you for reminding me that before I love others, I must love myself,” one wrote.
We second what they said – there’s no relationship as important as the one we have with ourselves.
