Could You Just Love Me Like This?

I posted this in February but I thought it bears repeating…

This poem brings tears to my eyes. The author is Hollie Holden and I think so many people, especially women, can relate to this feeling. 

How many times have you looked in the mirror and been critical of your body, your hair, your skin? 

How many times have you said negative things to other people about yourself? 

How many times have you said something like “I hate my (fill in the blank)?”

We are often our own worst enemy, and we speak to or about ourselves in a way we would never speak about someone else…especially someone we love.

Here’s an idea…why not treat yourself at least as well as you treat someone you respect or dare I say, even love?   

Give yourself a break. Look in the mirror and find something about yourself that you can be proud of. It doesn’t have to be what you look like. 

Are you smart? You have a gifted brain. 

Are you loving? You have a kind and beautiful heart. 

Are you able to move of your own accord? You have strong legs and feet.

Have you overcome adversity in your life? You are stronger than most.

Have you made significant changes in your life? You are courageous.

Find some part of you to love and just love unconditionally. Look in the mirror and express that love. You may feel uncomfortable at first but you deserve at least the love you share with others. You are worthy.
