Mirror Mirror ~ Do you like what you see? ~

Introspection — what better way to start a week.

Question: When you look in the mirror, do you like the person looking back at you?

There were not many times in my life where I really didn’t like myself. It seems like a strange dichotomy to me. Overweight, hungover, rejected — through all of the suffering, I have hated the life I was put into but I cannot say I hated myself. I also can say I didn’t really love myself but somehow I did like me.

I liked the way I could smile against all odds. I found humor when life was humorless. It may have been the very thing that saved me. Maybe it was the spirit of God I saw in the mirror each time I looked — taking away some of the hideous world I lived in. I am thankful for that.

Do you like yourself?

What I need to learn now is to genuinely love me!
