Why was I so mean to myself?
I wanted so badly to love myself!

I am pretty sure I am not the only women in the world that continuously struggles with the way I view my body. The unfortunate thing is, I remember starting this at a young age.
High school years is where I became very aware and felt as if I was the most unattractive human on earth. I didn’t dare share my thoughts because it seemed like everyone that heard me say anything along those lines would try to give me compliments thinking that would be the anecdote for my problem.
Fast forward through years of trying to love myself, I was in constant dissonance. My mind would go crazy trying to find all the flaws I had, but then I would feel terrible because I was trying to be loving to myself as well. The battle in my head was real and continues to creep in if I am not careful.
Loving myself is a daily battle as I try to quiet and replace my negative thoughts about myself. I have grown leaps and bounds as I have worked on this daily. The daily work is something to not forget, Just like I work on my relationship with my husband, family and friends, I am working on my relationship with me too. It is not easy, but it has been totally worth it.
