SELF HATRED

7:46 am

LOVE LETTERS|DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR SINGLES|DAY 159

Scripture for today

Matthew 22:39 But there is a second to set alongside it: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.' (MSG)

I hate me, I wish I could change everything about me starting from my eye, to my nose, to my legs and just everything. I hate my background, my family will just amount to nothing. I hate where I was born. Just like Job,  I curse the day I was born(Job 3:1). I know you are wondering who said all of these. It's you of course. Sometimes I wonder how someone who doesn't even see anything good about himself or herself want someone to see something good about them.  It's amazing how much self hate you have and you want to give love. How possible is that?

So many people can't even stand themselves alone with themselves for one day without freaking out. I know deep down they want other people not to only stand them but love them. It's not even possible for them to love themselves first, talk more of loving others. You can't give what you don't have inside of you, just like having a bad air condition and switching it on when your hot thinking you will feel cool. It's not possible right! So it is with loving others when you hate just everything about yourself. How can you keep a good relationship with others when you can't maintain a good and healthy relationship with yourself. There is no perfect person to love you better than you. You might not be the most beautiful or most adorably gorgeous to everybody but if you are to yourself that's all that matters. 

Nobody will give you the approval you want that will be enough to transform the way you feel about yourself. Quit waiting for people to make you see reasons to love yourself. Love yourself for who you are not the external things that validates you.  

Prayer: Lord, I love me for who you have made me to be. Help me remove every hatred for myself.
