    First Entry

    I have disliked myself for as long as I can remember. I feel like I am a terrible person and that I only deserve the worst. I have an amazing boyfriend who tries to help me feel better about myself, but nothing works. I want to like myself. I really do. I just don't know how to...

    No Problem Loving Yourself When You Know How Much God Loves You!

    We dont like ourselves for many reasons - Some may think that they are not as good looking as others or not as smart. Some of us might have had a traumatic childhood - where parents never expressed their love for us. For others, It might be because we just dont...

    Of course- any logical person would. Lord knows how much I love myself. The only problem is if I do something disappointing, I disappoint myself and that hurts most of all.

    So Trying

    I guess it's harder than I thought. I'm fine as long as there are no mirrors around to remind me how I've changed. How my body is proportioned differently, how my face has matured, the grays that keep peeking out and just the overall look that my challenging life has given me. I...
