I will never forget the day I walked into a classroom in high school and there was this girl crying. I asked her what is wrong and she cried more, I said I am sorry I will leave you alone. That is when she said, No please stay. Then she told me all her problems she was facing and how she felt ugly. I sat there in shock, I always thought she had it all together and she was so beautiful.
I took a deep breath and told her all the wonderful things I thought about her. She looked at me in shock now. Then I said, listen if you looked again you will see the love you are. Allow that love to grow and feel it, don’t allow others to take one piece of that love away from you. She thanked me and started smiling again.
I have often said the advice you give you need to listen to. Well that was one time I stopped and listened to what I just said. That was the first time I ever loved myself, nobody ever told me about this wonderful feeling and it felt great. I could be me and not worry about making myself perfect to someone else’s standard. I was perfect just as I was and loved who I was.
Whenever I feel down I just remember that story and I smile.
Take some time today and just love you. Notice all the wonderful and amazing things about you. You are truly awesome.
Much joy and love to you and yours
