“i really need to lose weight” i say as i sit motionless for 8 hours daily.
Loving myself just came with time. I started loving everything, being truly grateful, being humbled by nature and life itself. Self love is when you realize you are meant for something greater than sitting in self loathing. You look at the world differently because you have faith and trust in yourself. It takes time and practice and a lot of failures. Set goals for yourself. Every day tell yourself something you honestly love about your appearance or personality. Make that list grow every single day. Recognize your strengths, try and work on your weaknesses. FORGIVE yourself. Instead of tearing yourself down for making a mistake, make a promise to do it differently next time. Perspective is everything my dear!
No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.
(Dead Poets Society, 1989)
