1/9/13 – Let someone love you just the way you are


“Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room.” — Marc Hack

A friend sent me this quote yesterday, said that they thought of me when they read it. I, obviously, will take it as a compliment that anyone thinks of me when they read quotes. But this was different. I’m not sure how she knew I needed this right at the moment she sent it, but I did. I LOVE this quote! And I need to repeat it to myself DAILY! As simple as it sounds I think it’s one of the hardest things to do. Ultimately, I think we are all just too hard on ourselves, I know I am. We all have parts to us that are broken, but it doesn’t mean these parts aren’t just as lovable as the rest of us 🙂 Thank you, Lisa, for the quote, for the reminder and for always sharing with me!
