When it comes to acceptance and loving ourselves, sometimes we can be our own worst critics. Our journeys can include many dark and hard paths which make us believe that we’re worthless. Coming out as a lesbian, I was ashamed and for a long time believed I wasn’t worth love, happiness or success. Over a period of four years, I’ve had to learn to love myself, my sexuality and celebrate who I am as a person (A big femme lesbian!)

This quiz has been created to highlight if you’re truly accepting yourself or if you need to devote more love in your direction. Whatever the outcome, just know you’re worth everything. Being gay isn’t going to change your worth or value, always remember that.

What did you get? Let us know in the comments below & let’s talk about why you’re not 100% accepting yourself!

It’s important to understand that our quiz isn’t 100% accurate and some questions many not truly represent you. But what we hope this quiz starts is the process of self loving & acceptance. As LGBTQ+ members we are overly critical and harsh on ourselves, due to no fault of our own. But we need to remind ourselves we hold so much power, we are worth everything & that our sexuality doesn’t determine whether we can be happy.

Just know, you are always going to have your LGBTQ+ family to remind you why you’re special. Always be humble and love those around you.

Self love is something I’ve struggled with for years, accepting I’m a gay woman took years. But I am so proud to tell everyone that I’m a lesbian & proud. My journey has many dark and scary turns, but i’ve learnt to love and embrace my flaws. Hopefully this quiz can start that process and journey of self love.
