I’ve always laughed at the whole “love yourself” trend on tumblr/Pinterest etc., because I didn’t think it was really helping anyone. But after reflecting on some words from someone very dear to my heart, I’ve realized that I was laughing because I was trying to hide the truth: I didn’t love myself. Now, I’m making lists of things to remember, to motivate myself, to learn how to love who I am. Today was hard, but tomorrow will be better. I’m reading these lists every day. I encourage anyone who sees this to think about if they’ve been taking care of themselves, and to start writing out what makes them beautiful.
