"Love" is such an impactfull word, filled with great emotion, and filled with nothing.
So can I, should I "love" myself, when it can mean so many different things to different people? In many cases, far more negative than positive.

I prefer the term, "getting to know myself. My "self". That individual deep inside of me. The one with all the unique thoughts, ideas and interpretations. The one whose voice you'll rarely hear. The one whose still making her way fully to the surface.

Can I "love" that "self"?

After more than 20 years, I can say that I like her. The "her" that is me. I admire, respect and cherish me. And that is definitely good enough. But do I love my "self". Do I have to love my "self"?

I believe I do. Because by truly loving my "self", I encompass all of the things I appreciate about me. I am still getting to know that part of me and I don't like everything about me, but I do love me, which has made such a huge difference in my life.

With my "self" love, I have discovered respect, admiration, growth, acceptance, responsibility, appreciation, fun, trust, freedom and so much more and I cannot wait to see what more there is to discover.

But it takes time. And if knowing yourself is all you feel you are capable of doing, then go for it! It's not what we call it that is important, it's what we learn from ourselves and how we use our new abilities that truly matter.

Needing to find myself

After suffering from this miscarriage and everything else that's been going on in my life, I am really needing to find who I am. I need to find what sparks a fire in my soul, better ways to cope, learn who I really am as a person. Yes I am a mom and a fiancé but I know deep down I am so much more than that and I can still express who I am while being all of that. #Depression #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Anxiety #Healing #lettingo #recover #findingmyself



I'm always looking for ways for positive interaction. Some how the negitive always finds me. I'm left with the broken pieces of others situations. Mean while trying to stay positive. Staying stuck in my own confusion. Not headed to #findingmyself in any sense. #lost inside #struggling


#findingmyself In the midst of depression

#Depression I often sit and ponder over all my life choices and things that have happened that I had no control over and think who am I? Have I ever really known who I am.?

Then I just go numb....blank in the mind.


How do you go about finding yourself with #Anxiety

I have been thinking the last few days!!! i think a lot my brain never shuts up. I notice i have lost myself the year mainly because i was sick for the half year we have already past and i just don't know how to find my way back to what i use to be, if there even is a way back. I just need idea's to try and find me the girl that i use to be or a better version. #findingmyself
