Today, for the first time in quite a few years I actually looked at myself full bodied in the mirror. I didn’t realize how hard that was until I actually forced myself to look at myself for longer then just a glance or point out something that was wrong. Just full on, loved myself and told myself that I am proud of me, for what I have done. It made me think tho, how did I expect myself to improve on what I needed to improve on if I couldn’t even face myself. All these years of self doubt and self disappointment, I should have just looked myself in the mirror and told myself I love you and you are strong. It is a little sad that it took me losing weight to finally be able to look at myself in the mirror without disgust. This feels like another turning point, this feels like a step closer to true self love and acceptance. I love myself for staying true to the goals that I have set and the goals I have accomplished. If you are struggling right now, look at yourself in the mirror, look yourself in the eyes and tell yourself, I love you. And don’t look away right after you say it either, say it and mean it and look at yourself and point out the good about yourself rather then the bad. You are amazing, and you may not believe this, but you are doing better then you think you are. If you are struggling right now, please reach out. I don’t have all the answers but I can definitely listen.
