"I love myself." While it doesn’t seem like much, it may be the hardest affirmation that you ever utter. Accepting yourself, despite flaws, despite hardships, is one of the toughest things you can do, and is something I am working on as well.
This affirmation isn’t just when you’re doing something "good", something that you approve of. This affirmation is for when you feel like you dislike yourself, when things are hard.
It’s during these difficult moments in life that I have to remember that I am my own best friend. I love myself. It took me while to actually believe it – some days I still don’t believe it. I’m sure you feel the same way sometimes, it's human nature. Keep at it, keep learning and growing and keep on loving yourself.
