How can I love myself? I hate myself so much, I hate everything about me. Everyone keeps telling me “love yourself and the universe will love you back” but its not that easy for me. I can’t even look at myself.
This touched my heart deeply, coming from someone who had an inferiority complex most of her life and also issues with self-harm I can understand where you are coming from. It isn’t easy, not at all…but the first step is always forgiveness. Forgiving yourself and forgiving others around you, forgiving the past, forgiving whatever happened and especially realizing everyone is not perfect. Whatever happened, happened for a reason sometimes we don’t always understand the reason but it’s there none the less. You have to look at yourself in the mirror and tell yourself that, learn to love yourself for you are, with all your faults and all your imperfections, yes i’m not perfect but i’m still unique i’m still me. do you truly hate everything about you? everything? if you do, then change it. this is your world, your life and your reality, you have the power of the will inside you to change who you are but don’t do it for anyone else, change because YOU want to change, do not be influenced by those around you.
Listen to your own heart and feel the love within yourself. Learn to love yourself, it is very hard sometimes, it’s hard for me too. i’m not proud of what i did to myself in the past but what i can i do about it? I can’t change what happened, it already happened, but i can’t run from it either, i have to accept it and acknowledge what part of me would do something like that to myself. It’s okay to cry, it’s okay to breakdown, i know deep down inside of that hate there is a man or a woman there who deeply loves, maybe they don’t see it because they are clouded from their own judgment upon themselves but it’s there. You can’t run from the past, as the monkey’s uncle would say “ the past can hurt. But the from way I see it, you can either run from it, or… learn from it. ” how many times do we have run from our problems to realize that they’re still living inside of us all along? Forgive yourself and learn to love the beautiful person who you are, all of you, your dark sides your light sides you inbetween sides, you as a whole person, find the love within yourself, not from someone else. It is all within. That is what is amazing about life is we all go through some type of pain or another but it isn’t about the pain we face, it’s the strength and courage, the determination we face to fight it, to fight all our inner demons and carry on to the light and love within ourselves.
