HBBC: Self-Love

Welcome to The Half-Baked Bloggers Consortium's (HBBC) where we voice our opinions about a weekly topic chosen by various members. This weekend's topic is Self-love, chosen by Nema.

Please take the time to view their blogs just as you viewed mine in order to get different perspectives about the same topic.

Note: This is my first post for HBBC, be warned, I have nothing to add more worthwhile than my fellow HBBC-ers.

~ Self-love

Do I love myself? Why yes I do. I've long accepted my negative traits and learnt to live with them instead of pick on myself whenever I got the chance to. I think the most important part of loving one self is to truly accept who you are. Acceptance is the key here, just embrace your faults and it's only then that you could work on improving them or changing what needs to be changed. Respect plays a huge role too. If you do not respect and can't carry your self to those around you, how do you expect to be loved? Self love starts from within you. Cherish yourself. Be your favourite person in the world. Confide in yourself. Trust yourself to be what you wish to be not what others want you to.

I can relate to this bit of the post in some way.
As you've already read in my previous blog (the old one), I never really accepted myself for who I was.
It wasn't until very recently, that I got this lecture from my good 'ol pops, where he told me that I subliminally blamed god for choosing to make me stutter, and that I still haven't accepted myself even after about twelve years of stuttering.
"Cherish yourself. Be your favourite person in the world. Confide in yourself. Trust yourself to be what you wish to be not what others want you to."
Now this is something I'll have to work on, haha!
