Isn’t that the problem that everything starts with? I don’t know – I am no expert and also not a bible person but honestly looking at myself I am the most critical and judgemental towards myself. I don’t know if I have ever been this hard on anyone as I have been on myself when I have had a bad day, screwed up or failed at something. It looks to me, that “love others as you love yourself” should only happen if you really love yourself 😀
I would build up my best friend, sister or even a stranger, would support them lovingly but myself I judge. I convince myself I am not enough and certainly not good enough.
The more I judge myself the more I judge others too for what they wear, do or don’t do.
Who am I to judge though?
I’m currently reading a book called “loveability” and the author talks in one chapter about our supposedly biggest fear, which is “I am not worthy of love”/”I am not loveable” and everything we do circles back to that fear and trying to not let others see that or confirm our fear.
Who am I to not love myself unconditionally, believe in myself, humble myself and therefor do the same towards others?
Who am I that I let others and myself convince myself deep down, without noticing that I am not loveable, not desirable, strong, powerful, fun and full of life and wonder, no matter my achievements, body image and whatever else comes to mind?
I am loveable and powerful and strong and sensible and full of love. And so are you!
