Battle of Self-Loathing: Embracing Imperfection

BlogHer Spotlight

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."
