I’ll be the first to admit that my physical disability has impacted my love life – or as some may point out, lack thereof. At first, I kept wondering what was wrong with me: Do I scare guys away? Is there some inherent flaw within me?
But then it dawned on me: I wasn’t comfortable with myself, in my own skin. The moment I stopped being so self-conscious of my body and started really loving myself for who I was, suddenly, I wasn’t so eager to find The One. And I also realized that any guy who can’t handle my disability isn’t even worth my time in the end.
The greatest love affair you’ll ever have is with yourself. Don’t hide. Any. Part. Of. Yourself. So tell me, friends, what did you do today in honor of loving yourself?
