Love, Tolerate, Despise
This is the roller coaster I am on when I look in the mirror, when I look at my heart, and when I look at what I think about. I'm in this class "Love and Accepting Myself" but I honestly feel more hate and despise for myself than anything. I do have hope and have felt the peace of loving myself in brief moments in time, but after the damage I have done to myself and others it is a difficult thing to accomplish.
Learning to love myself, struggles and all, may very well be a lifelong journey. Thank you all for your prayers; it is a day a time when the subject of loving myself comes up. I appreciate everyone who makes this place possible for me to begin this journey.
