Embracing the natural you

The first thing you have to do is realize that you are you, that no one else in this world is like you, and that this is a wonderful thing. It takes all shapes and sizes, and all looks, ethnicity, and personalities, to make this beautiful world, and you are one of those people.
Take a good look at yourself without any makeup, without dressing up for a special night out. Look at the natural you, with no embelishments. Smile at yourself. Brush your teeth. Brush your hair. What do you see? Spend a good ten minutes or so on this. Feel out what you really think of yourself. If there was no one else in this world? In other words, don't think of what you think someone else thinks of you.
Your answers will vary based on attitude and self perception. Do keep it positive. You're worth all your positive thoughts.
Pick out all the possitive things you notice. Throw away all the negative things you THINK you notice. This is your starting point.

    Impressing and helpful. There are really times that we need to look at the mirror and see our self as we are. We need to be aware of all the things that we miss out especially the positive points that we can develop in the process.

      really good. I have been avoiding looking atd the mirror lately.
      I'lll get my 10 minutes in front of the mirror doing that.

      Loved this part: "Feel out what you really think of yourself. If there was no one else in this world? In other words, don't think of what you think someone else thinks of you."

      Thanks!

    Always believe in what you are and what you can do.

    God has loved you the way you are, so there is no reason for you not to love yourself and accept what you really are.

    The other thing is, if you are not the natural you, people spot a fake very quickly!

    I have also learned from experience, its only you who can love yourself for what you are. For others it could be a little tough to accept you the way you are. But key is to accept yourself with all your strengths and weaknesses and do not try to meet any body's expectation except yours.
