Why is it so hard to love thyself?

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

It's easy to say love yourself.. but it is so hard to follow... why??
Because we set our standards or we live by the standards set by the society?
We know ourselves in and out, yet we give excuses to ourselves!

I am waiting for the day when I can accept who I am, and not care what anyone else thinks? I might not be loving myself but definitely accepting myself.

    I agree, it's one of the hardest things to do. Yet, keep on trying, it's worth the effort.

    It takes a lot of work and it takes time but the effort put into shutting out all the nonsense around body image and food and loving yourself is life changing. Loving yourself is a radical act. It also leaves you time to have a life when your mental space isn't taken up with self-loathing and comparison. Keep working at it. You're worth it.

    Women are socialized to be self-effacing. Don't brag. Don't think you are better than others. Who do you think you are, anyway? It is thrown at us practically from birth. It is a way of keeping women insecure and on the defensive. Every time we try to love or accept ourselves these old "tapes" run through our minds. To get past them we have acknowledge and then confront them for what they are: manipulative brain washing from a society that benefits from keeping us insecure. Then take that whole concept and kick it to the curb and start fresh with loving and appreciating yourself. And don't let anyone tell you that you don't have a right to feel good about yourself.

    I totally agree with what you said, but I choose to tell you that the day will come when you will not only LOVE yourself, but you will ACCEPT and LOVE yourself UNCONDITIONALLY! I know, because I've been on the other side, for years!

    Amen sister! It's hard. I struggle with that myself. Personally and spiritually. I don't think I'm beautiful or good enough for Christ's love and exceptence.

    If you can't love yourself, how can you love anyone else? Love God first and He will help you love others. JOY Jesus, Others, and You. Sending you wishes for happiness and joy today!
