Low self esteem

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

The challenge for February for the Love Your Body, Love Yourself Team was to write a love letter to yourself and I did it!

It is helping me recognize that I am an awesome person. I still need to remind myself very often because of low self esteem. But I so deserve to like myself!

I love my kids so much! If I could love myself as much..... I would be in heaven!

It's not easy to like myself. Because of the dysfunctional family that I grew up in. I know that low self esteem has made life difficult.

I should take a better look into this issue.

So my personal challenge is to read this daily and learn from it.

Love letter to myself

Dear Pat,
You are the one person that I can count on to pick me up. Even when you are not at your best I still love you. You are patient, intelligent and are a fantastic person. You always care so much about my well being, thanks for being their.

I want to say thanks for being so nice to me in a tough personal part of my life, you where the sun shine after a long rain and it felt good.

Thank you for your kind words you are very supportive and that is a real blessing to all.

Your best friend et je t'iame a la folie, xoxoxo

A wise friend says;
Feeling Guilty, or Regretting Past Decisions & Choices won't change them. Only the Future is in Your Control. And it sounds as if you have a Firm Grip on the Future Choices for You AND Your Daughter!!
Don't waste One Second of your Future Regretting The Past!! emoticon

    Thank you for this blog, I can so relate. Add to that using weight (whether up or down) as a barometer for self esteem. Not a good thing to do...
You've inspired me, it's February. Time to write a love letter to myself as well as to those I love! emoticon emoticon

    I agree; it is so hard to have that positive self-image and love yourself. That is a truly lovely letter that you wrote. I think that is a great February challenge. I try to "say one positive thing" about myself on the Motivational Boards...I'm really impressed with your beautiful letter. emoticon
