When you look at yourself in the mirror, do you pick yourself apart, pointing out all of the flaws you can find, or do you look with loving eyes at someone you adore? Either way, you will feel it.
It would be a nightmare situation if someone else stood in front of you and stared, then pointed and picked apart every little flaw. And it’s just as much of a nightmare situation when you do it to your own reflection. This is how your self-esteem gets pummeled. It gets attacked primarily by your own self.
But, just as you can knock yourself down, you can also build yourself up. Why not start loving your reflection every time you see it? Yeah, I know that sounds like pure vanity, but it’s also a chance to give and receive love.
How great do you feel when someone who cares for you looks at you with love in their eyes? How great do you feel when you gaze upon someone you really love? Well, that love can and should be shared for yourself as well.
What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It starts with you.
