Self Image: Have you ever felt like this?
Before I start this post, let me say that I am not looking for pity. I’m also not looking for any particular solutions because I know that the key to change is often time and pressure … this is purely me getting thoughts out of my head to see if anyone feels the same.
Do you ever catch a glimpse of yourself in a mirror and think “how can anyone love this?”.
I do it all the time. I’m not the same weight (or even height sadly) that I was 5 years ago, before kids; and my own reflection often surprises me.
I know it’s a matter of “sucking it up” or “getting used to my current image” but I’m not there yet. I’m not quite at the point where I’m happy with my current self.
So I often have a lot of self image issues because what I see before me isn’t what I expect.
I kind of work on my image: I eat pretty well, but don’t do much exercise; so I can definitely improve there.. However I am finding it very hard to shift the weight. It may be because of my age (34), but it also may be because I’m taking anti-depressants.
It also maybe because I f’ing love food ????????
Whatever it is, I have a lot of self-doubt, especially my physical image..
Phil says “I love you for who you are, and I love you the way you are”, but I still have a lot of doubt.
Again – not looking for pity, or different solutions, because ultimately I know that with time, and eating right and exercise, my weight will shift (HOPEFULLY!). It’s just now I really struggle with how I look.
Do you understand what I mean? I don’t even know if I’m making sense haha …
