Self love is something I have struggled with for a long time.
I constantly want to wear a bag over my head, because I feel like I don’t fit into society.
I know I’m pretty,
I strive on a daily basis to be something I’m not.
Wanting to hide from the crowd,
Because I feel “too big”.
Today I am wearing short sleeves,
Allowing my arms to hangout.
Today I’m smiling a little more,
Allowing my double chin to appear.
Today I’m taking life into my own hands.
Today I’m loving myself.
As a kid, I was always picked on for being middle eastern and having thick eyebrows, or being “hairy,” but now that everyone wants them, y’all don’t have them naturally and the way you color your brows looks tacky as hell.. karma for the untalented, ungifted, and hairless I see
Sometimes, we lose ourselves by focusing on where we could be, instead of appreciating how far we’ve come. We all have different attributes and physical features that make us beautiful. I wish we would celebrate that more than making others feel less. Compliment a random stranger; Take time to make people feel loved. The world needs more kindness, not hatred.
