A Little Letter Filled With Self Love

Friday, May 27, 2011


Dear Jacque,
I've noticed lately that you've been struggling a little with your self-esteem & your self-image. That is the main reason why I thought it would be nice to receive a little letter filled with love from me. You've always been hard on yourself. Ever since I could remember, you've been the type of person to push yourself just a little harder than the person next to you. At times, it seems that your expectations for yourself are a little bit unrealistic. I just want you to see all the amazing things about yourself that I see everyday. I want you to give yourself more credit for your talents and achievements. I want you to smile at yourself in mirror and feel happy about the image smiling back at you. And most of all, I want you to stop comparing yourself to others in such a self-hating manner.



You deserve to love yourself...and you know that deep down. You deserve to feel happy, loved, and beautiful. I know that the road towards true self-love is a rocky one, but I think it's worth it in the end. You are worth the effort. You've been through so much in your life, and I've seen you become such a strong person and endure more than most. You've always been so brave, and I'm in awe of all the things you are capable of. My biggest wish for you is to stop beating yourself up and punishing yourself over every failure. Things are never going to be absolutely perfect. The best part about being alive is embracing all the splendid imperfections in life and in yourself. You have always been bursting with positivity and encouragement for others. Why can't you give yourself a little bit of that gorgeous energy and positivity? I think you deserve to love the amazing, wonderful, and beautiful person that is you.

Love ,
Me
