Learning to fully love yourself can be a lifelong journey. If you're struggling with insecurities, shame, and the need to feel accepted, you are not alone.
The path to self love, as described by the woman featured in this SoulPancake video, did not come without years of trials and tribulations. After dealing with rejection throughout her years in grade school, she finally met a boy that seemed perfect for her. The only problem was that she was never seen as good enough for this boy's mother.
"I wasn't skinny enough. I wasn't fair enough. I wasn't rich enough. I was nothing that she wanted".
After 5 years of trying to earn the mother's approval, the relationship eventually fizzled out and the boy got married shortly after. The fairy tale ending this woman had always envisioned with this man had abruptly ended.
If you learn to love yourself first, you will never have to change who you are for somebody else. Learn to love your strengths just as much as your flaws. There is only one you in this world. You are unique and beautiful exactly the way you are. Just because somebody doesn't see you that way, doesn't make them right. When you love yourself with all your heart, nobody can take that away from you.
In the case of the woman featured in this video, she let go of her delusion, and fell in love with her reality. Hopefully this SoulPancake message will prompt some soul searching in your life to help rid yourself of the constant need for acceptance and guide you on a path towards self love.
