31 Days Of Self Love: Day 16

Day 16: What is the most loving thing you have ever done for yourself?

Acceptance. I feel like the most loving thing a person can do for themselves is to accept themselves for who they are; being okay with who they are.

I have struggled for a long time to accept who I am. I always struggled with self confidence because I was not happy with how I looked. I struggled with social anxiety, depression, paranoia, and all of these things. I have struggled with some of what I consider important relationships. All of these things added up to me feeling like I was the odd man (or lady) out everywhere I went.

In the recent years I have begun to realize that life is not all about what you look like. It is more about your heart and the goodness inside of you. It doesn’t matter if I have one friend or fifty-seven of them. It doesn’t really matter what other people think of me. It matters what I think of myself.

I have accepted myself for who I am, the good and the bad. I am working on the things that I want to change. Except I am doing it for me and not for anyone else. Being able to accept myself has made my life a lot more productive and happy.

Until tomorrow,
