Sometimes the hardest person to love is yourself.
I’ve suffered so much self hate and resentment.
That I realized this war within me had to stop.
So I glanced at the mirror smiling at the lovely woman staring back. And I admired her body with awe. So I told her that she is smart, kind, beautiful and strong. While I vehemently chanted to every inch of her body, as resilient and wonderful.
So now her beauty is embedded within my thoughts. From that moment on I just knew it. After hating her for all these years….. I was finally loving her for the first time.
