When I used to look in the mirror I just saw all my insecurities…my “something wrong” as I would call them. I barely looked in my eyes. All the past stories in my life would come up in an instant.
I had no compassion for myself. I told everyone else how beautiful they were. My compassion for myself did not exist. I was harder on myself than anyone in my life. I did not like to look at myself in the mirror. I did not like to see deep in those hazel eyes …If I did…I thought I would see fear? I thought I would see all the things I went through…but one day all that changed.
I slowly started to look at myself differently. I wanted something different. I was tired. I started to take care of myself more. I started to realize the small steps I was taking was actually big big moments. I started to believe in that person staring back at me. Who was this? How did she get to this point?
I decided to forgive myself…forgive others.. not necessarily forget…but I wanted to heal..I wanted to be present in my life. I wanted to help others feel better about themselves. I started to heal and by healing myself I can heal others.
Slowly I moved from fear…back to a warm place. It was a safe place. It was a beautiful place. It was LOVE. I felt love for myself, true sweet love…Just Love!
