When someone tells you that you are beautiful, believe them. They aren’t lying. I know that I struggle with this one every once in a while.
In the last 4 years, living with multiple chronic illnesses has changed my physical shell quite a bit. I’ve been struggling with loving the reflection that I see in the mirror. I have heard similar stories all over the internet. Knowing that you are not alone help us feel better, but believing that we are beautiful is more difficult to face.
My husband still finds me beautiful and I know deep down that he’s telling the truth. I see it in his eyes. Yet, I still have trouble believing it sometimes. My insecurities take over and I fear that he will get fed up with my health issues and the physical damage they’ve caused and leave.
