To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
We all want to feel loved. It makes us feel good, and it builds our self-confidence.
If we don’t feel loved it can bring up some intense emotions such as “I’m not attractive enough, skinny enough, good enough, I’m balding,” etc.
I was in the category of self-judgment. Doubting myself on certain occasions and not fully stepping into my power. This played out from time to time until I began to consciously become aware of it and began the healing process.
