Thinking about self

Monday, May 07, 2012

I had a bit of a revelation this weekend. And it was both simple and the most difficult thing ever. So, here it is-
Until I accept myself, for who I am, for what I look like right now, I will never be happy and will never reach my goals. Right now I am just clinging to the idea that "someday" when i am thin, when I have better hair or smoother skin or who knows what, someday I will like myself and be happy. But all of that self hatred is just keeping me from my goals. I am hiding, thinking that I will magically be transformed and that everything will be ok. Avoiding mirrors and avoiding taking a real look at myself and the work I need to do.
So for this week, my goal is to be kind to myself, to be generous, to admit my faults but not dwell on them. To be out in the open rather than hiding in the shadows. And this blog post is the first step.

    That is so true. Would we treat a friend the way we treat ourself?

    What you wrote is so very true. If you cannot and do not accept yourself with a nice helping of self-love, how can you accomplish anything? Great blog.

    emoticon and honest post and an eye opener I have been there and until I came to the same knowledge this weight lose journey was not working for me either It is so important to except ourselves for who we are and that does involve loving us in the here and now for who and what we look like now.

    Once you believe you will be amazed at how quickly you are transformed emoticon
