Do you ever think about the past and want to go back to make changes for a better present or future? Do you ever look at yourself and wish there was things you can change about you?
I have always thought of this. There ARE so many changes I want to do regarding my past.
In truth, we all have our insecurities when it comes to our characteristics. I hate how I look with glasses, I hate wearing my glasses everyday. It makes me look like a child even though I am 24 years old. Whenever I am taking photos with my family or for social media, I take them off. Having the case of Strabismus (one eye is crossed), I always worry of how the photo will turn out. I would always wish to go back in time to fix my mistakes in the past and not having to wear glasses.
It took me time to love myself. I have acne scars, eczema, sensitive skin, my Strabismus (this one I'm most insecure of), and so much more. But in the past few years, I've learned that #selflove is a never-ending lesson. I've learned to love myself and my flaws; my flaws are who I am. There are times where I wish I could change, but I remember that there are people who love me. Flaws and all.
I recently watched this film called Take It Back - 2019 directed by a Filipina American Director, and UC Riverside Alum, Cassandra Pimentel. This film spoke to my heart, and I just want to share it with you.
