Contrary to the common belief, a healthy self-image isn’t that shiny or glamorous.
It’s something good. But it doesn’t always feel good. And it doesn’t always come across as something good.
In many cases, you have to go through a lot of pain in order to reach that highly sought-after healthy self-image and high self-esteem.
You will not always have it. You will still have insecurities and flaws and shortcomings.
