Why Is It So Hard to Like Yourself?

If I asked you to tell me what you loved about your best friend- you would have no problem. Tell me why Halle Berry is SUCH a babe and you could list like 189 physical attributes, probably. You could tell me why that girl in your Spanish class is freakin’ PERFECT and you could tell me why your boyfriend is a total catch.

It seems as if you can compliment everyone on something…except yourself.

WHY are we so hard on ourselves?
This is something that I think every person (especially in your 20’s) struggles with.

It’s so hard to like yourself. And even if you do somehow manage to like something about yourself all the sudden you’re “cocky” or “full of yourself.”


I’m making it my personal goal in 2013 (I’m not into new year’s resolutions this is more like a LIFE RESOLUTION) to like myself.

Who CARES that I don’t go to the gym every day? That I sometimes eat DORITOS instead of Baked Lays? That I CANNOT for the life of me understand math? I sometimes trip. I sometimes forget to put eyeliner on one or both eyes. My hair never does what I want it to. I rarely shave my legs. I sometimes don’t say the right thing. I have failed more than a couple of tests in my life. I don’t have my future planned out. I don’t even have tomorrow planned out.

So what?

I still like myself.

There. I said it. I LIKE MYSELF.

And you should like yourself, too.


I would love your feedback.
