As I am is not the way I am, or is it?

Spirit tells me that for me to love myself as I am

Does not require that I love myself the way I am.

 

I can accept myself as imperfect without necessarily

Accepting my imperfections.

 

And, He suggests that I really must work on these.

 

Where would I begin?

 

From the beginning.

 

When was that?

 

It never was.

 

So, what then?

 

You can only begin now.

 

He’s wrong of course. I’ve been trying for as long as

I can remember.
