Do you like yourself?
It feels like we’re not supposed to say we like ourselves, especially as women. It’s big headed and vain to say we like who we are, we’re proud of our achievements, we think we have a good personality or we look good.
Big headed, up her own arse, conceited, snooty, vain, self-centred, egotistical, narcissistic. We say all of these things bout a person when they seem to like themselves – but perhaps we’re just jealous that this person seems so comfortable in their own skin, while we don’t feel so great in our own?
You’re not supposed to be happy with yourself, you’re not supposed to like yourself.
Well, I say balls to that. I say we should all like ourselves. We should all love ourselves. Life is far too short not to, isn’t it?
So let’s start now. Let’s start by saying
I like myself because…
I like myself because I am a good mother.
I like myself because I am a kind person.
I like myself because I make an effort to help others.
I like myself because I am strong and resilient.
