I was outside in the warm afternoon air and my thoughts began to wander, as they often do. I began to ponder how one truly finds self acceptance.
But how can you truly love yourself when others ridicule you for who you are. From a young age,we are told that if we want others to like us we must like ourselves. But sometimes it is hard for us to see our good qualities. It is often hard but I think it takes that one person to say "I like you for you." those simple honest words uttered by a peer.
Those simple words that open the heart and let a fresh light air in make all the difference.
