Whoever you are out there, don't be ashamed of yourself. Of any part of yourself. You don't need to wait to like you. You don't have to earn anyone else's approval before you can like yourself. Society would tell you to wait to like yourself until you're BETTER - whether that better is thinner, healthier, more in control, taller, shorter, happier, more successful, wealthier...
The thing is, if you wait until you're better, you'll just keep on waiting. Because none of us is perfect - and if we were, I doubt we'd believe it! So don't wait to like yourself. Don't be ashamed. Sure, try new things, improve yourself, go on adventures. But don't let those things be why you LIKE yourself. You don't need to justify liking you. You know what I like? Rocks. All rocks - smooth and shiny, big and lumpy, colorful, gray, mountains or pebbles. I like rocks and there is really no good reason for it, but there doesn't have to be, because it's just what I like.
I like rocks. I like you. I hope you like rocks - and you - too.
