As a child, I could never except a compliment and come to think of it I rarely received any, as though I was invisible, unseen.
I was however told often of my flaws, I was a snob, I was too thin, I had no boobs and if I smiled more I’d be pretty.
I battled internally with all of these words and believed them.
Whenever it was time for a photo, I’d cringe because I knew they’d show my imperfections and I clearly remember my sister being baffled as to why the pictures turned out so unflattering. I knew why! I believed I was ugly and it shone through.
Even now I have been told that I am too much, that I’m selfish and intimidating
I have battled with self love and self image for soo long and worked so hard to change my thoughts and feelings about myself.
I now know and believe I am beautiful and worthy for all the gifts this life has to offer
You always have the choice to change your story
