If You Can't Love Yourself How In The Hell Are You Gonna Love Somebody Else?

January 12, 2019

It's been a while since I've looked in the mirror. 

I was always ashamed of what I saw - my body was not like the ones in all the magazines; my skin not smooth, my stomach not flat, my hair not glossy and my teeth not straight. 

It hurt to see such ugliness staring back at me. 

But now, I stand in front of my reflection and look myself in the eye. I am not my flaws: imperfection doesn't exist. I am a good person who has many good qualities, and the world does not define me. 

"I love myself."
thanks to RuPaul for the title of this piece ;)))) SELF LOVE IS IMPORTANT SOCIETY SUCKS AND THE MODELS YOU SEE ARE NOT REAL LIFE BE HEALTHY BE HAPPY BE YOURSELF

    very true. but this is much easier said than done. i think the true way to get rid of all of the hatred is to stop pushing societal norms, so that there will be no hatred in the first place.
