Battle of Self-Loathing: Embracing Imperfection
By All Things Fadra on October 11, 2012
We all do this, sell ourselves short, let that bitchy inner critic have the last word. Throw in long, critical looks in the mirror plus a blogging summit and this woman maxed out on self-loathing. These days she's looking into what the Japanese call "wabi-sabi", embracing the imperfection:
"There are parts of me that I don’t like. Parts of me that say you’re not good enough. You’re not doing enough. And it’s time for that to stop. I have a specific plan to help me work on those feelings. But there are other parts that are a little more difficult to work on. And it’s not just self-esteem. It’s self-loathing and it’s a really awful thing. I constantly look in the mirror and see what I don’t want to see."
