They say that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder...well I'm the only one beholding myself most days and I don't see any beauty. I see so little beauty in fact that there is a picture that my sister took of me with my niece, and I actually don't recognize that beautiful woman in the picture. Every time I look at I wonder "who is that with my niece, I don't remember seeing her at the park". That's because I didn't...I never do.
How can someone deny themselves so much that they literally can't see themselves?
It isn't just in pictures that this happens. On a couple of occasions, I have listened to other people talk about me, and I'm always surprised when they tell the group that it is me that they are talking about. How can that be?
I know very well what my problems are, and where I can use improvement in my life...maybe it is time that I started to notice the things that are right about me too.
