ENTJ: When I feel down, I like to evaluate my life progress and make goal lists to pick myself back up!
Why do you hate yourself enough to call yourself ugly? Why do you listen to other people so much that you can’t see your own beauty?
True self-love requires a willingness to remain open about both the good and the bad parts of who you are, and to face that dichotomy, very honestly, each and every day.
Here’s the thing: you’re allowed to not be enough sometimes.
“It’s no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself—and it’s no easy feat to change yourself. Either way you look at it, it’s a tough journey.”
You can be the most beautiful person in the world and everybody sees light and rainbows when they look at you, but if you yourself don’t know it, all of that doesn’t even matter.
Last weekend, I walked into a bar with a bunch of my friends. I was at my lowest weight since last year, hair and makeup on fleek – I felt hot. But then this guy took one look at me and said to his friend, “We should go.”
I don’t know why I keep thinking pain means romance. Or sacrifice means “I want you” but maybe I’ll start going back to therapy tomorrow. Or next week. It’s just so easy when we make couches here. We’re just so good at being bad for each other.
Your beauty is not validated by anyone else. Not even the most loving, supportive, and well-meaning person in your life.
Being blinded by love means you are blinded by the warning signs. Learning to positively react to and ultimately walk away from any uncertainty will ensure you are beginning a future relationship on stable ground.
