projection is a reflection

“Perhaps we should love ourselves so fiercely, that when others see us they know exactly how it should be done”. -Unknown

what does your version of self-love entail? is it on the surface of the earth or the depths of such?

we often fail to recognize the projection of love we express, rather than understand our influences to the outer world with our individuality. all too familiar are sounds of negativity and disgrace about oneself, from the people we share life around. where children hear the sounds of you shaming the body that gave them life, just because it changed or has marks from carrying and growing a fetus-a baby. where we doubt our intelligence but merely confuse it with simply lack of exposure. when voices chirp complaints about not being enough of something, but to whom are we comparing too? when we contrast the idea of a perfect image, who decided or taught you what to hold standards too?

when we are young, we are programmed to think and act to a way of someone else’s desire. when is it that we take charge for ourselves? when do we realize the idea of a person’s perfection should be entirely one true to themselves?

beauty is forgiving. beauty is unique to each of us. beauty is in the eye of the beholder, the perspective of one of all things in life.

wouldn’t it be nice if we could choose how our brains projected the image society molded into us, that to be beautiful you must be: this that and the other. how about we just forget that bull shit entirely, beauty is you.

so before you start the sentences that neglect your body and true self, remember one thing: someone can hear you, someone is learning how to love themselves with influence to how you love yours. show it mercy, show it strength, show it love.

mi amore, please love yourself
