    I Didnt Always

    But I do now. About 10 years ago I was going through a nasty divorce and also recovering from spousal abuse (verbal and mental, mainly, but some physical). I had a very low self-esteem for a long time as a result. In fact I was anorexic - I got down to 100 lbs (and I'm 5 ft...

    One of the most bizarre feelings occurred to me

    yesterday while looking into a mirror: I couldn't recognize myself. In the past few days I got a hair cut and chopped my beard, and I never really look at myself anyways. If I had to pick out a picture of myself mixed in with similar faces, I don't think I could do it. Crazy.

    Your entire life is created by your

    interpretations of stimuli outside of yourself. Nothing is good or bad, right or wrong, except for your mental interpretation of external influences which are by nature empty.

    I am happy with my body.

    I'm sure there's always room for improvement. But I will never believe a person when they say they like my body.
