Reflecting on the poem above reminds us about how much more critical, less forgiving, and just less loving we can be to ourselves than others. We say things to ourselves that we would never say to friends, and yet our lack of self acceptance can impact our relationships. True long-term change is never motivated through fear (including the fear of not being good enough); instead sustainable change is motivated by hope, passion, and love. Let’s remember to love ourselves, including the skin we are in. When we are motivated by love for ourself and others, we can truly make long term changes toward wellness.
