Sometimes the hardest person to love is yourself.
I’ve suffered so much self hate and resentment.
That I realized this war within me had to stop.
So I glanced at the mirror smiling at the lovely woman staring back.
And I admired her body with awe.
So I told her that she is smart , kind ,beautiful and strong.
While I vehemently chanted to every inch of her body ,as resilient and wonderful.
So now her beauty is embedded within my thoughts.
From that moment on I just knew it.
After hating her for all these years…..
I was finally loving her for the first time.
