All of my life I’ve constantly worried about others, how they feel, what they think of me, etc. I was raised in a home where reputation was everything, or at least I was raised there half my life. We weren’t wealthy, but my foster dad was a preacher so reputation was everything, and people were constantly pointing out my every mistake and flaw. I never cared about self image until it was instilled in me to care about it. I feel like my worst flaw is always being able to understand, accept, and love others, but never being able to love myself. I know one of the main things people say is you can’t really love someone else until you love yourself, but I disagree. I believe you can’t be Ina mutually beneficial relationship unless you respect yourself. I respect myself as a human being, and as a woman, but im still trying to learn how to love myself.
