until you see your own beauty

you will never fully see mine

    1. Aw, thank you, Vic. πŸ™πŸΌ Yeah…I just feel like how can we truly believe someone who sees our beauty unless they can see their own? I know it’s not that easy or simple but beauty is more than skin deep, and sometimes includes the scars and damage, too. 😊

    Of the hundreds of pieces of poetry I wrote last year, this little phrase was my most β€œliked” piece.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about why it strikes a chord with people. There are more than one way to interpret this perspective, I believe.

    How can we be so blind to our own beauty and yet still be able to see the beauty in others? Owning our worthiness for love, owning our inner and outer beauty and uniqueness, is so important for our personal and interpersonal health.

    If you cannot acknowledge your own beauty, how can others believe you see theirs?

    We are trained to believe that all Ego is bad. This is not the case. There is a range of healthy and unhealthy ego. We need ego to prevent ourselves from being mistreated, to learn to avoid toxic situations, we need it to have the confidence and power to help others, we need a sense of self in order to know how we relate to the world and what we need and want from it.

    We need to learn to own our gifts and talents without shame. To gracefully accept compliments and praise, to believe we are worthy of it, to understand that our abilities and efforts in this life impact others in a way we may not be anticipating β€” may even shock us, may be difficult to believe, but we have to trust the other person’s experience.

    Ego when unchecked is dangerous, just like anything that is out of balance. Too little, or too much and we and others suffer.

    But you can’t truly have compassion for others unless you have compassion for yourself first. Start there.

    I’d love to hear your interpretations on this subject.
