WHAT'S ON YOUR MIND?

Low Self-Esteem, No More.

(story submitted by Alicia, a 21 yo Chestist, on OOC rewind )

What we love about this is that it's 1 of you talking to and sharing with all of us. Nice, right?  Here's her story:

I've always been a person with low self-esteem and used to think nobody could love me with all my flaws and my negative view of life.

But now I've learned the lesson: you don't have to be perfect to love and be loved back.

I understand life is unique, and I'm the best me. There's no other you in the world, so play your best role. Now I'm with a boy that loves me for who I am and understands beauty is something relative. He thinks I'm beautiful and that I'll always be.

I hope this helps you. {end story}

We love this, and like Alicia, we hope it helps too.  And again, we also want to throw some love to Alicia for writing and caring enough about others to share what she's learned and learning.  That's cool.

    It’s so important to realize that our flaws are what make us human and beautiful not ugly.

    I really love this part of your piece “There’s no other you in the world, so play your best role.” It just reminds me that so much of life is like a play in which we’re characters. I know that sounds like the Shakespeare line so I guess there’s some truth to it. If we don’t like how things are going, sometimes we just have to change the part we’re playing.

    Nothing like falling in love to change a negative view of life!

    This really gives me hope.
    How did you find him? I need some pointers.

    I have spent way too much time with men who do not appreciate me for who I am. I need to take this to heart and go find someone who loves me for me.

    “You don’t have to be perfect to love and be loved back.” I agree and wish I could accept my own “imperfections” as comfortably as I accept my lover’s.
