I wish that I could love myself more than I do. If I loved myself, I would be more free to love others, like my boyfriend and my friends, etc. I think that loving myself means taking care of myself. It also means letting myself feel emotions, even if I don't like them. It means not overeating because I'm stressed. It means standing up for myself when I feel threatened or violated. It also means liking my body just the way it is.
This is going to be my goal of this semester of school. Here are my goals, in writing so I don't forget them.
Goal #1: Take care of myself (eat healthy foods, drink enough water, get enough sleep)
Goal #2: Be assertive and don't let myself get trampled on.
Goal #3: Ask for help when I need it.
Goal #4: Work hard at school but still take time for myself.
What are your goals? What do you think love is? Do you love yourself?
