I Am Learning To Love Myself

I don't love myself enough to surround myself with goodness, because I don't believe I deserve it. I think that people are always going to hurt me. This is because I don't feel good enough. Yet most people live in admiration of me. Most people dot believe I have low self esteem.

My love life fails because I don't trust, I'm jealous, Im paranoid and insecure, I need constant reassurance. I need to be perfect in everyones eyes including myself. I can't take compliments and I can't take criticism. I am scared of being left and loosing because I will look a fool.

I am very attractive, appear strong, fit and healthy. I am successful and independent.

If I loved myself more my life would be so much easier. This is my goal for the year.

Goodness is already surrounding you, and you know it.<br />
<br />
Knowing yourself is the first step to love yourself, and you seem to know your limitations pretty well already.<br />
<br />
Then comes acceptances; you are who you are, just the way you are… and you really are a beautiful person.<br />
<br />
And to be able to love yourself you also need allowance; the allowance to be loved, the allowance to take in all that ‘god’ness that is already around you. Only you can allow yourself.<br />
<br />
By then, you will know how strong you really are and how much you do already love yourself. And you will know it more by the way that others love you than by the way you really feel about yourself… You are almost there now, because it has already happened.<br />
<br />
All the best and big hug from me…
