I’m fully aware of what I’m about to say sounds hokey, but I’m going to say it anyway. We need to find a way to fall in love with ourselves again.
I say ‘again’, because I believe there was a time when we truly did Love who we were. And maybe we still do. Maybe we were young. Maybe we were real young. But, I think there was a time.
A time when we viewed ourselves in a different light. Maybe one with a bit more sunshine. More grace and more empathy.
But, now were older and we don’t cut ourselves as much slack. Maybe we should.
Maybe we can re-frame the way we look at our past as evolving in order to give ourselves a bit more credit than we’ve been doing.
Maybe we can find a way to forgive ourselves, drop any regret and move on.
Maybe, just maybe we can fall in Love with who we are right now.
