That’s right! I’m learning to love myself. I haven’t totally succeeded yet but I feel I am on the right path to be able to understand what is the right key to look me in the mirror and be really happy with what I see, have a big smile, and start my day in the best possible way.
At the moment it is not entirely simple for me and over time I have had moments where it has been even more so.
I do not hate myself or see myself ugly when I mirror myself but I am always dissatisfied and certainly not in love with some parts of me.
Over the years I have never deepened this thing, let’s say that I have never been an overweight girl but not even a model. I have always had my shapes and let’s say that until a few years ago when I lost about 10 kg, I never had thought my body could change so much.
Time for change
All these thoughts started in an important way a few years ago when, in a moment of big change in my life, I lost many kilos; this happened because I started doing more sports and changed a lot of my eating habits. This led me, when I looked in the mirror, to like myself much more and to see someone new.
I really liked that change, which over time began to take place not only on the outside, and for this reason I have always tried to maintain this new lifestyle. However, it is not entirely easy, especially when I have sad days and I cannot react with positive emotions!
What am I trying to do?
So what I’m trying to do is the opposite of what I would have thought. I don’t want to force myself to exercise and “diet” I want to build habits that make me think I want something more every day. Of wanting to achieve big goals every morning when I get up and wanting the same before I go to sleep.
I want to look in the mirror and smile every time I see the reflected person, I want to recognize myself, thank myself for the person I am and consequently feel better with others too.
When I feel 100% I see that I am totally myself also with others, I want to talk about myself, to share my emotions, who I am, and what I do.
I don’t want to be ashamed of who I want to be, my habits, or what I love to do every day from when I get up in the morning until I go to sleep.
Being ourselves is the best thing we can do to be happy every day, people will accept us for who we are because they will see our true being.
