Neil Crespi has a post that stirred up some old feelings... It brings to mind that having beauty within also means having love for oneself. Back in the day I had a relationship with someone who was not only verbally abusive, but he was physically abusive as well. He cut through my self-esteem so badly that I didn’t feel beautiful at all. I was constantly comparing myself to other women and totally unhappy with myself.
It took quite a while for me to build the confidence that I now have. It took years of soul searching and finally being with someone who lifted me up spiritually.
Have love for yourself, ladies! That’s the first step to becoming beautiful :)
