"I'm trying to love myself but all the negative things ever said is all I keep focusing on. I feel as if that is who I am even though I know I'm not a horrible person I just can't believe it because my mind is focused on the bad. I simply want to love myself again."


  1. Dear Anonymous,
    It can be difficult to switch our attention to the good things. I especially find this true late at night. But writing out words can help confirm them, so maybe you can write a love letter to yourself? :-)
    Everyone says bad things at times. But we are all deeply loved. Forgiveness includes yourself as well, and the fact that you want to love yourself is a good sign that you're already on the way there.

  2. Beautifully said Jade. You're amazing.
