There is an article in the upcoming issue of Harper’s Bazaar where Demi moore is quoted as saying, “I would say that what scares me is that I’m going to ultimately find out at the end of my life that I’m really not lovable, that I’m not worthy of being loved, that there’s something fundamentally wrong with me.”
Hearing something like this just breaks my heart….learning to love yourself isn’t something that happens overnight. It’s a long constant conditioning that who you are is ok…and it’s embracing your flaws as well as your postive attributes. It’s understanding that “in spirit, everyone is equal” and in the most simplest terms, everyone puts their pants on at the same time, everyone hurts and everyone gets a broken heart. And sometimes, there are clinical reasons why we don’t love ourselves.
We all have demons we are trying cure and export… I would hate to wake up 10 years from now and feel what she is feeling..or quoted as feeling.
Take the time to heal yourself..read, dance, sing, play, go to church, synagogue, temple…meditate, do yoga, paint, etc., and if none of this helps,…speak to someone..but please don’t let the years go by thinking that you are not lovable. You were born lovable, maybe somewhere along the way you got lost. It’s ok, we all do but it’s never to late to find your way back to LOVE… you deserve it! xoxoxo
