There were days where I didn’t want to look at myself in the mirror. There were times when I couldn’t directly look at someone’s eyes. I’ve always been insecure of everything, about how I look, how parched my skin is, how big my eyes are, how thin I am but don’t have that curved-body like every teen in my age has. It’s sickening because it’s not only about caring too much of my physical look nor being over too sensitive but also about how long my self-esteem has been damaged because of these insecurities I’ve been carrying for so long.
The struggle of feeling mediocre and not being good enough for anything is slowly killing me.
But then again, I guess, the biggest misconception about self-love is that some people think of it as merely accepting oneself — and that’s it.
But I think self-love is a balance between embracing one’s imperfection while attempting to improve ourselves to be the person we want to be. It’s a process; recognizing one’s flaws is just the start. Sometimes you need to find your inner strength and find your own self-worth.
What other people think of you do not matter at all. Accept yourself wholeheartedly and please be reminded that the battle between you and your inner-self there is this one person who will always be the center. And that is God.
God will always remind us that no matter how we look or how our physical features would degrade us, He will always be there to constantly remind us that you alone, is already enough.
Ephesians 5:29-30 - For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ also does the church, because we are members of His body.
