  1. This was a hard one for me. I needed to take time to think about this. I really never understood how to love myself. Mostly my teen years consisted of self loathing. I was always reading self help books, always trying to fix self. Never felt at ease around people. Always thought they could see right through the veneer and validate my feelings. Which is all they were, just feelings of inadequacy. I was trying too hard to fit in. My dad was a very prejudice man. He didn’t care about me, he only cared about what type of man he didn’t want me to marry, in color and ethnicity. I didn’t listen to him. What was all the fuss about. I had no prejudices. It didn’t matter to me what color or nationally as long as there was love for each other. I never felt the love of my dad. And if my dad didn’t love me, then I must have been unlovable. It took many years before I learned the love of a Father, God our Father, that is. Once I met Him, He taught me how to love myself and to love and have compassion for others no what color or ethnicity.

  2. Hi, Susan. Most of us have gone through that phase of hating ourselves. I have been there myself. I remember being upset with my mom for not straightening my nose when I was an infant (LOL). Throughout the years the Lord taught me how to love and appreciate myself. Have a great weekend.
