Being comfortable in your own skin means to be satisfied with yourself. In America, especially for women, this is interpreted in terms of appearance, but it’s much more than that. True satisfaction and self-esteem reflect your ability to cope with whatever challenges life has for you. External validation does not bring the same satisfaction as learning to respect yourself and learning to feel worthy of happiness. To be content with whom you are and the way you were created is so important to learn. On the other hand, this doesn’t mean we no longer strive to be better and do better, like working on certain attitudes or getting in shape. What it does mean is “I don’t want to be anyone else, I’m learning to be comfortable in who I am”. There are some things we can’t change, like your height, or the size of your feet (ha ha), but we CAN change the way we think and process information, and how we react to it. I believe this is important to our spiritual, mental, and emotional health. Let’s start to be comfortable in our own skin and truly experience happiness.
Just a Thought,
