Chances are if you read this, you have trouble loving yourself. It's hard to do, I know. Loving yourself is hard; you know your flaws, you know what you struggle with. It's hard to accept yourself because you know there is better. You know that you are not the best. It's hard to forgive yourself because you can do better. You know you can be better. You are hard on yourself. I get it, I know this because I go through it.
We all struggle. Everyone has their own problems, everyone has their own story. We are all making our way through life: different stages, different experiences, different struggles and I know its hard not to compare yourself to others. I know its hard to see past those small imperfections that get larger in the mirror as the day goes on.
Life is made of imperfections, impurities, mistakes, and flaws. Nobody is perfect.
BUT What you need to hear, is that you are loved and appreciated. Even if you don't believe it, you are.
You know your flaws-you know them better than anyone else. You understand your character flaws and maybe your physical flaws. Don't focus on them. It's easier said than done, I know. But, you are so much more than the downfalls you feel you have. When you love yourself, you can accept yourself.
You do not need to apologize for accepting yourself. Forgive yourself when you screw up, when you say something you don't mean. Forgive yourself if you hurt someone, or if you hurt yourself. Forgive yourself so you can try again. Remember, we all struggle. Struggling looks different on everyone. When you forgive yourself, you love yourself. It's hard, I know, but you deserve it. It is your obligation to love yourself, to give yourself what you deserve
YOU are significant.
YOU are worthy.
YOU are beautiful.
YOU are smart.
YOU are strong.
YOU are enough.
I love you❤
