Loving Yourself

Loving yourself is probably 

the most difficult thing to achieve.

People are constantly putting us down, 

talking behind our backs,

laughing at our "flaws"

and those messages become our thoughts.

Do you know anybody who 

truly and completely loves themselves?

I don't.  

We are surrounded by a society that tells us

we need to be

pretty, 

smart, 

strong, 

popular.

And as time goes on, 

these expectations just get higher and higher,

to the point where “acceptable”

is perfect beyond attainability. 

So how do we learn to love ourselves?


We have to be courageous and confident enough

to say we don't care what others think,

and truly mean it. 

We have to fight against stereotypes 

that are making us hate ourselves. 

We have to stop wishing we were

prettier,

smarter,

stronger,

more popular,

and just accept ourselves for who we truly are. 

Easier said than done, am I right?

Do you think you are strong enough

to stand up for your happiness

and pave a better path

for generations to come?
