Self Love is the Best Love

There’s no better love than the love you give yourself. It’s unconditional, it’s uniquely and genetically formed, it’s one-of-a-kind, it’s deeper than the eye can truly see. Beauty is beyond the flesh … it’s stored in the core of the soul. Every woman and man was created from the finer elements of the earth. As children we were led to believe that little boys were made of “snips and snails, and puppy dog tails” and little girls were made of “sugar and spice and all things nice.” As an adult, I’ve grown to accept that we all are a bitter-sweet beautiful mess.

When I stare at my reflection in the mirror, my flaws are magnified. I begin to count the dark brown freckles on my face, I poke (and often pop) the protruding pimples on my forehead, I yank that one long black strand of hair under my chinny chin chin (that annoying piece of shit is like weeds in the middle of a rose garden), I squeeze my nostrils together just to get a quick glimpse of my nose in a standard European form. I then would do a half turn and notice that “phat” ass (squat jumps and lunges are truly a woman’s best friend right after diamonds and designer dogs). The struggles of being a woman in love … more like,  in a “love/like/dislike/I can’t stand you” relationship with herself.

There’s no one in this world like you. We all have a purpose to live, to love, and to appreciate the beauty in life. If no one ever tells you this, let me be the first … “You are beautiful!” Love yourself first before giving it all to someone else.

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it”  Confucius

  1. I couldnt agree with yoy more. Loving onself is so important. Loving the good, the bad, and the ugly. Improve on the things you can and just accept the things that will not change. We tend to look for love in the wrong places to fill voids we refuse to face. What am i running from? Why am I living so recklessly? Dont be afraid to dig deeper into your soul and life to answer thses and other questions and then you will be able to give and recieve love in its most genuine form. Be a blessing to others.
