Love yourself!

As the Psalm above indicates God has made us wonderfully. Our mental health depends on realizing that we are human but made in God’s image. Like knowing a close friend, we need to be aware of our flaws and imperfections. Strive with the help of God to acknowledge, forgive ourselves and change what we see that may not be in God’s image. Ways to “love us” as God loves us may be to:
Strengthen our prayer lives.
Pay attention to our posture.
Do things that make us feel good about ourselves. This may be volunteering in some way
Set boundaries.
If you still struggle in accepting yourself, a counselor may be able to help.
Don’t expect perfection. We are human.
