    I am learning to love myself now,

    after spending my 8 years, pleasing somebody. Now, it's my time to think about myself.

    I am trying to be my best friend.

    I don't have any, my spouse isn't my friend either. So I am trying to build myself back up from scratch.

    My life is so much different then it was three

    years ago. I dident know it was possible. I am not as happy as I can be. But I'm not nearly as bad off as I've been before.

    Something I had to do

    for a long time as long as I remember. I finally gave up and admitted that I was different from everyone else at school. For many reasons. Too many reasons. Everything is so f. in my head, with me and image that I thought I was some kind of monster at times. It just made me...

    Goodness gracious, I've come to the realization

    that all the high exceptions I've set for myself have held me back from achieving anything, for years! I need another game plan, I can waste any more of time. Peace & love ~ mmx

    The first time they dropped rope at my feet I

    did not pick it up. Must have been my pride. Then as they spoke of faults which labeled my worth I thought I could do better. I could do it alone. So I dug into myself and washed every space within; details corrected, everything polished and ready for show. The next time they...

    You are beautiful. Don't measure yourself by

    other people's fickle standards of beauty. God made you unique.

    I look back on my experiences

    and stories that I've accumulated and I say to myself 'what were you thinking?'. I'm always updating my profile, changing it to fit the person I'm becoming because I'm changing, but for the better, and I'm proud of myself. I have my bad days, like everyone else, but I'm strong...

    "remember To Love Yourself."

    Loving yourself is probably one of the hardest things a person can actually do. It means being able to forgive yourself, the ability to accept that you're not perfect, that sometimes you're not in control, and that is perfectly alright. For a long time, very long time, I hated...

    Unattachment I think I am currently learning

    this lesson: It is unbelievable how I am attached to people. I caught myself wishing for a life time kinda friend, one who would be always there for me. But it is not possible for one person to be there always. People have their own problems and their own path to fallow! I...

    Finally hit that point in my life

    where I know I deserve better. I found self worth. I found that happiness really is within ourselves. I'm freaking in love with who I really am and one day someone will see that. Gone are the days I fight for thier attention.. I fight for myself now.

    For quite some time now I have seemed to be

    deeply unhappy with myself. I can't tell you how many days I woke up and just felt like I was nothing. I still don't love myself as much as I'm going to, but I don't say or think hurtful things about myself as often anymore. I'm even starting to see myself, physically, in a new...

    I always reject peoples compliments

    and then I get asked "Why do you think you are ugly" There really isn't a straight forward answer. I guess it's because getting bullied as a child makes you start to believe what the bullies say. I know it's easy for people to say "Love yourself for who you are and ignore what...

    This winter break has granted me

    so much time to ponder the wackiest, saddest, and even livening topics. Amongst all these things, I've tended to my heart's own garden, and that's something I'll continue to do. I want to go back to school with a bit more confidence. I think I could make it happen. Lately I've...

    It seems so simple, self-explanatory,

    and obvious, doesn't it? Loving oneself sounds like something that should come totally naturally. I have found that mindfulness helps me stay attuned to my fluctuating emotions and recognize more quickly when I am being unkind to myself. How can I expect to love someone else...

    Can we really love ourselves?

    I mean, we can and certainly should accept and like ourselves. But is it possible to love ourselves? To me, there are two things related to love. Chance and possesion. It is by chance that we love the one we do, but at the same time we know that it is him/her and cannot be...

    We are always in a state of change.

    I'm sloughing off cells as I type and generating new ones. My consciousness is changing as I express what's in my heart. There is no stability by nature. The best we can hope for is some consistency in the direction of change. That direction is determined by vision. When I see...

    The more I talk about my issues

    and social anxiety, the easier I find it gets. Before I opened up about it I was so ashamed of it and felt like a smaller person. Now that I put it out there to people I know won't judge or put me down because of it, the easier it gets and the happier I become

    I spent most of my life trying to make sure that everyone around me loved me. If someone did not think I was absolutely the best thing to come along in years I would feel as if I failed.   I would panic and try to bend myself back into the shape they most liked but by then it...
