Nobody was born disliking how they looked. As infants and young children, we were naturally self-loving. But we were taught to become insecure about our appearance as we grew up. So, reclaim that birthright. Fall in love with yourself all over again. See what you can do to enhance your appearance. I don’t recommend cosmetic surgery or crash diets, but we all can look better by paying more attention to our wardrobe, grooming, fitness and how we carry ourselves. Vanity can be healthy if the person you’re trying to impress is none other than yourself.
Now that you’ve worked on the outside, it’s time to work on the inside. What’s holding you back? What will set you free?
There are millions of people running around on autopilot – finding themselves consumed by everyday life and the expectations of others that they’ve forgotten to care about the most important person in their lives – themselves.
If we continue to neglect ourselves, what’s going to happen (and that’s already affecting thousands of elderly people today) is that we’re going to eventually find ourselves in a place of sadness and loneliness. Because in all our running around and tending to everybody’s wishes, we allowed our own problems and dissatisfactions to simmer and fester.
How do we do everything for everybody and do for ourselves, too? We can’t. We have to accept that. There will be times that you will not be there for someone because a part of you needs your love and time. And that’s ok. You have to help yourself too, you know.
