My dad said to me recently “Why can’t there just be a ‘self esteem’ injection.”
He said this comment during a discussion we were having about how self esteem makes or breaks you. It literally does. Lack of it has broken the majority of you.
Where is your self esteem?
Did you ever have it?
If no, why not?
If yes, when did you lose it?
The concept of not believing in myself is totally foreign to me. The only time I ever remember not being self confident is when I was modeling. They shriveled me up like a prune. They shrunk me down to a tiny ant that could be killed with a quick flick of their finger.
(Above: me, photo shoot in Paris at 16. These images always remind me of how low I felt about myself during this time in my life. The eyes always tell the truth don’t they?)
As I read through posts, particularly on the new open forum, I am disheartened. I wish I could inject self esteem into each and every one of you.
In my dream, you would all slowly stand up, look to me with eyes wide, as the view of the true, beautiful, compassionate, wonderful world folds open before you.
Love you all,
