In my journey to liking myself I have come to realize more and more that I am a lot different than other women my age. I am mortified by the depletion of morals and values by women in my age range.
Acting like a whore and sleeping with everyone when married makes me want to vomit and the amount of men that have persuade me while they were married blows my mind. What happened to values and respecting yourself? I have never been that woman, the one who was more interested in immediate gratification then in waiting for the right person.
I not only like myself more but respect myself to the point that I would rather spend my time alone then be in a relationship with people who are only out for a quickie.
I have worked really hard to find myself again and like who I see in the mirror so I will not take any chances on lowering my standards. I am not putting myself on a pedestal but I remember being taught right from wrong as a child and then being raised by good people I want them to be proud of me.
Liking yourself has to start with being able to look in the mirror and liking what you see. I don’t always like how I look and am working on that but I like you I am and that is much more important. If people don’t like me it usually comes from the fact I challenge them in a way they are not comfortable with. When I make people uncomfortable they then run and say awful things about me in hopes to make me unappealing to others. It almost always back fires on them.
I don’t bite my tongue and say what I think. It does not mean that I am disrespectful just honest and most people can’t deal with that. So take a moment and look in the mirror past what you look like today and decide to you like who you are? Liking yourself is the first step toward freedom from the pains of your past.
