How can I love myself when my legs are riddled with deep cellulite and my entire face is covered with acne?
Well, if you only love yourself when you look as you desire to look and feel sad and angry about the way you look when you have problems – then that is not love you feel anyway!
Love – true love – means to love without conditions, unconditional love. So the simple fact that you are having cellulite, acne, financial trouble, a cheating partner or what ever it is you are living that makes you dislike yourself and your life right now… it can be a blessing! This is YOUR opportunity to work on how YOU feel about yourself. And yes, how you feel about yourself does not have to be affected by how you look or what happens to you. But it takes a little time and practice to reorient your thinking.
We have become so adept at judging ourselves and comparing ourselves to others that that often becomes our most practiced way of thinking. But it is nothing but thoughts that we have continued to think – when you start to deliberately choose more general and reliefgiving thoughts about yourself and life, you will soon begin to feel the elation with that way of thinking and that will inspire you to keep choosing improved thoughts.
Do you want to feel good? Do you want to enjoy life? Do you want to have fun? Then you have got to start liking yourself, as you are. When you start liking yourself you will not only feel better, you will not only like yourself but everything about you and your life will begin to improve as well.
