Yes..I said it...you are beautiful. I think that most people become very uncomfortable with loving themselves. Today I had the opportunity to work with a woman who everyone thought was so successful.
She worked very hard, raised 3 kids on her own after her husband passed away. Her kids are thriving. She was an RN for most of her kids lives, but decided to go back to school and get her Master's degree. Which she did...very successfully. She taught afterwards but still wasn't satisfied with her life. So, to make herself “better” she went back to school, while raising those thriving 3 kids, working a full time job and a part time job, and is now a Physician's Assistant. Well done” one might say. But as I got to know this woman I realized how lost and lonely she was. We ended up sitting there chatting for at least 45 minutes. She let on to why she wasn't satisfied about her life. You see, she was brought up to believe she wasn't good enough, or pretty enough, or deserving enough. How sad is that? There she was sitting in front of me, tears in her eyes and wondering why she felt so bad about herself.

After about 15 minutes worth of coaching and swapping email addresses and talking about fees I could see that this woman still has hope.

You see my friends,  take a good look at yourself every day. If there is something that YOU don't like..fix it...and I mean YOU. The only opinion about YOU that matters is YOURS. Get comfortable being YOU. Learn to love YOU. Change your language about YOU.

I will help this very unsuccessful successful woman find herself....and then love herself.....and realize that ....

She is Beautiful!

What about YOU?

    • Have you seen Joy Luck Club?  Why I asked?  Most orientals are raised with little self esteem.  Oriental boys and girls are never good enough.  We are raised in a very competitive society (look at Hong Kong, China, Japan).  We have to be “Uno” in everything.  But still, due to the upbringing, we never feel “Good Enough“.

      I was also top of the class (Rank #1 out of 120+) throughout all school years.  Except the last one when I was 17.  I was exhausted.  I was confused.  Then I ranked to #4 I think.  I cried and dared not to go home with my report card to my parents.

      Shortly after divorce, there was none or negative Self Esteem.  I thought I failed everything.  

      Luckily after years of counseling and years of faith rebuilding, I feel much better about the “me“.  It is not easy for I have to recognize the tape in my brain and then rewrite them with good voices.  The voice creeps in and will never be gone but I manage.  

      Thank you.
