Welcome to I Love Myself
For many, life is hard, sad, lonely, and lifeless. There are countless sources out there telling us that who we are is not good enough, not beautiful enough, not worthy enough, and not deserving of happiness, love, joy, and peace. We are taught that we are lacking in every way, and the solution for our lack and imperfection resides within products, entertainment, conformity, food, the future, and so on.
Do you ever feel like you are living a lie? Do you ever feel that you are stuck? Do you ever feel that you won’t ever be good enough? Do you ever feel that there has to be another way to live, but just don’t know what that is, or how to grasp on to it?
If so, I know how it feels. I was there once.
I decided a few years ago to put this website together to help people just like you. I’m 30 years old and living in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. I’m a father, a son, a brother, a friend, and an excited, crazy, randomly goofy lover of life. For years, I went through the experience of hating myself, going through severe depression, and being at the receiving end of other’s negative words and action. I went through great lengths of professional help and digested years of medications and finally got to a point where I realized nothing was helping me, and I was struggling to find ways to even keep myself motivated to be alive.
At the point of what was supposed to be my suicide, I realized that who I thought I was, was nothing more than the judgments, expectations, limitations, and programming thrown on to me by my religion, by corporations, by family and friends, by the media, and by society overall. Who I truly was, wasn’t what those sources told me. I was so much more, and I realized I had been taught to believe a lie. I was living an illusion and carrying a false identity (that was the ‘self’ which I hated). It was then that I chose a new path, a new direction, and decided to create a new life. I spent the following 12+ years in deep meditation, studying psychology, philosophy, and spiritual and religious texts from all around the world to find out what it takes to be happy and experience a life full of laughter, peace, joy, and love. I found what I was looking for, and have been sharing my story and helping others for many years now, and I want to help you too.
It’s time to take control, take responsibility, and make the changes you need in your life. Make the choice to see and recognize the fact that you already are wonderful, incredible, perfect, and a gift to this world. Be honest and true to yourself and let’s begin!
