I have not always loved


I have not always loved myself.

My hips are too big, my eyes are too small, my skin is too uneven, my thighs are too meaty, my hair is too curly, my teeth are too crooked,

Nothing about me is PERFECT!

I am not worthy of a mirror,

they were made for the beautiful to admire themselves!

At least...I used to think so.

See, don't get me wrong,

I still have bad days.

Bad feelings about yourself do not just change overnight.

But, now....I look in the mirror, and most days, I'm okay.

My hips don't look so big..My eyes don't look so small..Skin, not so uneven...Thighs, not so meaty...My hair is just the right amount of curly..and my teeth, aren't so crooked.

I look at me, and I see my parents, and I am a beautiful recreation of them.

I am beautiful..

I am worthy of a mirror.
