5 Truths to Help You Love Yourself More

5 Truths to Help You Love Yourself More

by Brooke Obie

What if we could all be up-front and accepting of the things we don't like about ourselves? Well, we can. It's a matter of getting a handle on how we look at these things. That's what my new book, FLAWD: How to Stop Hating on Yourself, Others, and the Things That Make You Who You Are is all about.

It's about perspective. It's about examining and playing with our perspective so that even though we live in a society that thrives on flaw hate, we can move in the direction of flaw love. The 5 truths below are excerpted from  FLAWD and can help you--regardless of your age--because while it would be nice if self-esteem issues were something you just grew out of, the reality is they're something you deal with in life until..you deal with them. These 5 truths will help you see yourself as perfectly imperfect; think about what really matters; embrace all that makes you, you; and know you can be part of a flawd and powerful transformation. --Emily-Anne Rigal with Jeanne Demers.
