Personal note number four:

This one is something I am struggling with, it’s self acceptance. I am self-conscious about my face and I have this need to explain to people why I look different when I smile. If you follow me for a while you know I’ve been paralyzed on my face during 3rd trimester of my pregnancy. I have never been more angry and disgusted with myself than that time. I couldn’t look at myself. It took time, and with help of physiotherapy my facial muscles improved. I will never have same face I used to have, but I am ok with that now. I accepted myself.

Whatever you are struggling with know that loving yourself is a first step, accepting the things you cannot change and taking pride in who you are, are the most powerful things you can do for yourself.

“Don’t rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can’t love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
