Mirror Mirror On The Wall, Am I The Silliest Of Them All?


Tuesday, June 18, 2013

What do you see when you look into a mirror?

Do you see yourself for the beauty God has given you and accept the things he thought were most grand about you??

Or do you see the lies someone planted in your mind with their small words??

I have had a love hate relationship with my mirror most my life....I have always known I was a pretty person and that is why I ate myself into a food mess thinking that the extra weight I had carried would scare people away so I wouldn't get hurt again by a man the way my dad abused me growing up...
But two years ago when my Mom died I realized its my time to start loving me, to forgive myself, to let go. I am still learning to love myself everyday. Sometimes it is very hard looking in the mirror because I get scared of who I am becoming because I might get hurt, but reality is. A smaller version can get hurt just as much as a larger and it took me a long time to realize that and its taken me a long time to realize that protecting myself from others hurting me made me miss out on a lot in life...

Losing weight was easy. Keeping it off is easy,but learning to truly love yourself is one of the hardest things I have done in my whole life.

I can tell you I'm a different person now that I was 2 years ago...im even a different person than i was 6 months ago...everyday im growing...for the better. and its a wonderful ride even with the bumps..detours...pee stops...road blocks...constructions...and the danger ahead signs because I know I'm exactly where God wants me to be and who he wants me to be...Right here and right now :)

    We do spend too much time pointing out all the negative aspects of ourselves. We just have to beat the negative voices down and focus on what is great about ourselves.

    I'm so glad you are learning to love yourself. You deserve that. Nobody has the right to take that from you!

As the Bon Jovi song goes... "welcome to wherever you are, this is your life, you've made it this far. Welcome, you gotta believe, that right here right now, you're exactly where you're supposed to be. Welcome, to wherever you are"

    very deep message there! for all of us!!! I really like this one. Something that I am starting to understand is that many people whom I see as beautiful, think I am beautiful! All I can think is "Why? What is wrong with them, im not pretty!!!" But the truth is that I have lived with this face for 42 years and I am so used to it that it isnt pretty to me. But to others it is because they HAVEN'T lived with this face. They have lived with their face! And they feel just like me!

I knew why I felt that I was ugly, because I was told I was, so of course I was. But so many "beautiful" people feel just as ugly. I have been getting friendlier with the mirror. I can now even look at myself in the mirror without getting anxious, nervous and scared. Something I was never able to do growing up
