It happened somewhere along the way of growing up; Maybe it was when you started struggling in school, it could have been when you stopped being as good in sports, maybe it happened when your body started to change, was it when a boy determined your worth, or maybe it just happened. But somewhere, sometime, you stopped loving yourself. You lost your worth and respect for who you are. It’s time that you remember why you are so special and it’s definitely time to fall back in love with yourself.
You’re probably thinking “not me” or maybe even that it’s not possible because you’re “too ugly”, “too dumb”, or whatever excuse you want to give, but darling, you are so extraordinary, it would be impossible to not love you. I want you to see what others see in you.
God, you’re gorgeous. There’s not a day where someone doesn’t appreciate you for your beauty. Did you know that beauty lies inside and outside of our bodies? Your spirit is beautiful, your soul is so pretty, your actions are stunning, and your body is lovely. You might not see your beauty, but others do. So next time you look in the mirror, find something that you think is beautiful about yourself.
Appreciate your intelligence. You may have areas in which you struggle. Maybe it’s school, geometry, sports, common sense, or something else, but your weakness does not define your intelligence as a whole. Find the subject or area in which you are strong and bright. Maybe you know a thousand things about animals or maybe you can read music (a difficult task if you ask me). Maybe you’re a speed reader or you understand people’s emotions like they’re your own. Whatever it is, embrace it, and acknowledge that you are smart.
If somewhere along the way, someone made you feel unworthy or unlovable, remember how many people love you and want you in their lives. Whether it’s your family, your friends, your co-workers, or just strangers, someone loves you dearly and you mean the world to them. They see your worth. Don’t let one person, or multiple people change how worthy you are. God only made one of you for a reason. The world needed YOU.I know that failure, self-image, and life itself can make you forget how much you mean and how great you are. But, beautiful, you are magnificent. Don’t let the world change your view of who you are. Stop forgetting your talents and the unique things that make you yourself. Fall back in love with YOU because you are all these things. No more negative thoughts, no more excuses. No matter who you are, you are each and every one of these things and you are wonderful. Love yourself!
