Fall in Love with Yourself! Not ego love but appreciation love. Know that you are just fine the way you are. Know that learning to love you may take some time. Know that the world will make it hard because they are busy judging you, trying to show you the light, sharing unwanted advice, trying to actively make you feel bad about yourself, and trying to control you. And remember they do not love themselves; if they did they wouldn’t be worried about you or anything you do.
Get help if you can’t do it alone. Ask friends, family, and professionals. Feeling good about yourself leads to loving you. It is your duty to like and love yourself. Know that you are the perfect manifestation of God’s work. There is nothing wrong with you. We are all perfectly imperfect. Know this. Embrace this. Live this.
There is no one else on this planet like you.

I am not traditionally employed so I am at home during the day, which means I see a lot of television. Most of the time the TV is just on and sometimes I am goofing off channel surf. But I digress.
The one thing that is consistent is the airwaves are full of commercials on how women can improve themselves. How to fill those laugh lines, those crow’s feet, that droopy neck, etc. It is horrible how badly women are made to feel about themselves. Not one mention that men could use these products too.
Love yourself Women – Don’t believe the hype that something is wrong with you. Imagine if women woke up tomorrow feeling good about themselves so many companies would go out of business.

Right now, can you make an unconditional relationship with yourself? Just at the height you are, the weight you are, with the intelligence that you have and your current burden of pain. Can you enter into an unconditional relationship with that? – Pema Shodron
