I like myself & What?
It seems like liking yourself is a revolutionary act now-a-days. Liking how you look, liking who you are is apparently not the norm. Saying “I love myself” is seen as bazard. Some might even call it conceited.
How ludicrous is it that we applaud those who dislike themselves and condemn those that actually like themselves?
But I have to protest.
We have all been given a body, a mind, and if you believe in souls, a soul as well.
And unless you believe in reincarnation, then you probably agree with the fact that we get one shot in this world. One Life. And why should we waste it disliking who we are?
That’s right. We shouldn’t. And…we don’t have to.
Why not be revolutionary and love yourself, just the way you are. There is always going to be room for improvement, but why not get crazy and love yourself right this very second instead of ten pounds from now or a job promotion from now or straight A’s from now.
For some reason, we feel compelled to fix our “imperfections”, to strive for some ideal image, for perfection. But let me break it to you all, you ARE perfect. Just the way you are. There are way too many reasons to list, why there is much more profit in telling us how much we need to “better” ourselves instead of how much we need to love ourselves. So do yourself a favor, say “Fuck it. I love myself TODAY.”
I think we could all benefit from a little bit more self love.
