Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made or dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty and your purpose when you are confused.
— Alan Cohen
I came across this quote online and it just stayed in the back of my mind. Those of us with self-esteem issues should remember this quote for those times when we feel unloved and unworthy. It’s so easy to fall into the trap that all anyone ever sees are the mistakes we make, the pounds we gain or the bad thoughts we sometimes think. We need to remember that those that love us remember us as beautiful and wonderful beings. This kind of love is why people stay married for 50 or more years and true friends are friends for a lifetime.
