Winding Path Toward Self Love

Mindful Nutrition - Stop telling people that no one will love them until they love themselves

“Stop telling people that no one will love them until they love themselves; stop planting the idea in people’s brain that they are unworthy of love because of their own struggle.”
—Jack Barakat

For years, I was told that my weight would not come off until I loved myself. But, for me, partly the weight was on because I did not know how. People kept telling me to love myself and the weight would come off. I didn’t. I know I didn’t. And, the thought of waiting until I knew how to, was so damn depressing. So, for me, this quote really resonated with me.

I took a few steps forward, didn’t hate myself as much and was able to grow more. I took a few more and things changed. A few more and then I started to like myself around the edges, then I was able to implement a bit of self love and understood more. Then, I would fall and the craziness would start all over again.

So, I love, love this quote. For me the path was not as straight and wonderful as just deciding to love myself.

Maybe yours isn’t either.
