I have been on a journey for a few years that has lead me to learn to love myself. Growing up I happened to surround myself with people who were "Debbie Downers".
It took me a while but after getting burned a few times I have learned that a lot of the people who bring you down are those who are not happy with their life or love themselves.
Loving yourself is a very important factor in your overall mental health. Your mental health also affects your physical health. Five years ago I met the man of my dreams. He told me (and still tells me) everyday how much he loves me and that I am beautiful. He tells me the things that I do that make me amazing and set me apart from others. I began to see how he told me the things he loved about me but there were so many things I hated about me. So what did I do? I figured out the things I truly didn't like about myself- and then I took my best foot forward to change them. I found something that I truly enjoyed and pursued it- Holistic health and alternative medicine. In October 2012, I graduated with honors from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
My husband and I got married in May 2012, and using that as a point in life when things changed... I found that I have become more positive and can see the good in people and in life. My relationship with the Lord has made leaps and bounds. I honestly can look at myself in the mirror everyday and to be honest I know the things I don't like about myself but I work on them daily. I also see the good deep down that comes out daily.
