It can be difficult to admit reality, especially reality about oneself. It can be difficult to admit to yourself and others that you do not like yourself, maybe even that you hate yourself. It can be difficult to admit that you do not love yourself. Driven by our need to be accepted and liked by others, we resist facing and admitting the truth about how we truly feel about ourselves.
This resistance to face our reality blocks us from living a healthy and happy life. This resistance to face our reality continues even in the face of our experience, of the damage that we have done to others and ourselves. However, when we take the powerful step to admit what is so, that we do not love ourselves, we will create the possibility of starting our transformation.
Is it time to start loving yourself?
