I am not talking about liking your physical self. I am talking about liking who you are as a person.
For years I hated myself. I didn't want to be alone with myself. That would have meant I had to deal with all the things I hated about me.
But, this past year and a half has completely shifted my thinking.
I don't mind being alone anymore.
Because I actually like me. I would want to be my friend if I had just met myself. The hubs jokes that I am quite smitten with myself. Maybe he is right. I sure deserve that after all the years I spent fighting myself internally.
What do I like? Well....................
I am funny. I am strong. I am determined. I am loyal. I am trustworthy. I am smart. I have really good hair and I kinda like my nose. There are so many things that I could name that I truly like about me.
Are there still things I don't like? Yeah. There are. Probably always will be. But the good now outweighs the bad.
That baffles my mind. The thought that I actually like me now.
Along this weight loss journey there will come a time when you have to deal with all the emotional mumbo-jumbo that is spinning inside your head. There is no way around it.
So today I ask you: Do you like being you?
If the answer is still no, then figure out how you can get to a point that you want to be with the most important person you know..........you. You are worth knowing.
Have a fantastic Monday!
