Self Love

  • Christina Rodgers

Abstract

I called myself fat yesterday, I called myself ugly the last two weeks, I repeated to myself that I wasn’t good enough a month ago. Today I told myself that I am beautiful. Today I told myself that I am enough. Today I told myself that I’m not skinny, but I’m not fat, I am me. Today I told myself that even when it’s hard that I am enough. Today I told myself that I’m not going to care anymore, not going to let what the world thinks is beautiful control who I am and how I feel. Today I told myself that I don’t have to be a size 2. Today I told myself that I am amazing. Today I am confident, today I am me. Today I love myself. [Author Addendum: Learning to love yourself is one of the hardest but most rewarding things you can ever do.]
