Learning how to love yourself is something that you must learn to accomplish. You may have parts of you that you are extremely happy with, and then those that you dislike. You have to stop hating that portion and work on improving the way you view these things. If you have habits that can be changed then do just this. If you just have quirks, then these are part of your personality. They identify what is unique about you, as a person. You need to accept and love your quirks!
Every day you want to focus on how you can do things that showcase the person you really are. If you want to speak out about something, then do so. Don’t stay quiet just because your friends or family may not approve. Always try to stay true to yourself as much as possible.
Before going to bed each night ask yourself if you were the best person that you could possibly be. Did you make the right choices or did you let fear keep you hiding in the shadows?
This entire journey of accepting yourself will take time, and yes, it may not always be easy. Just remember that you are doing this for yourself and for your family. By becoming the person you really want to be, you will be happier and this will reflect on your entire family.
