Day 1: Why am I doing this challenge? Because I believe that understanding, loving, and accepting oneself is one of the few guaranteed keys to happiness and fulfillment in this world. I had really bad self esteem issues in the past, and while in general my view of myself has been improving steadily for quite some time now, I still have a lot of shame about parts of myself. To love oneself, it can’t be picking and choosing parts, it has to be learning to love the whole. So I think this is a good exercise. Oh, and given the nature of this blog (See An Anonymous Outsider), I will be finding an alternative for Day 2.
I challenge anyone who reads this to try it for themselves.
