For 20 years, I did not know what it meant to love yourself. I always looked for love in all the wrong places.
If they thought I was beautiful or smart…I thought that.
If they thought I needed to lose weight and that I was too strong minded…I thought that.
If they no longer wanted to be with me; whether they were at fault, I questioned my worth.
My value..my worth…my beauty, was wrapped up in what a guy thought about me. I was extremely depressed during this period in my life. I did not know who I was and I hated the woman in the mirror.
On my 21st birthday, I decided enough was enough. I wanted to find out who Chelsea was. I wanted to smile at the woman in the mirror.
Although, this has been a very long journey, I finally discovered me.
I am beautiful.
I am smart.
I am enough.
My worth is not based on what some guy thinks about me. My worth is based on how I see myself.
I no longer walk with my head down. I hold my head high and walk with confidence. I know I am the ish and there is no other woman out there like me.
Because, God uniquely created me and there is not another me out there. I now know, in order to have any successful relationship, you have to first have one with yourself.
Learn to love you.
Learn to appreciate you.
Learn to be selfish with you.
Sometimes you have to look yourself in the mirror and say, “Damn girl, you’re beautiful!”
