Conditioned To

I was talking to a dear, dear friend today and we, together, had a huge revelation!  Let me explain the back story a bit for you…

We, as women, are often super down on ourselves.  We, for some reason, quit liking/loving ourselves somewhere along the line.  Why do we do that to ourselves?  Why do we hate ourselves so much?  Why are we so negative about everything about ourselves?

And then the revelation came!  We, as a group of women, have been so conditioned that being “conceited” is wrong.  And we’ve been conditioned that loving ourselves is conceited and selfish.

What has this world come to?  Why do we allow ourselves to get into this rut in life?
