I understand this.  I really do. However…

When I was writing a few years ago, I wrote a long monologue to a friend about self-love.  The line I wrote that stuck out to me, that I didn’t even know lived inside of me was, “I hope someday you know what it truly means to love yourself and I hope you find someone that reminds you when you forget.”  It’s important to see value in who you are, but I’m learning to be okay with asking for reminders from others as well.  

That’s not what that post was entirely.  It wasn’t a cry for help from my Tumblr family…. it wasn’t about body issues.  I’ve had a rough past few days and “cute as hell” is a phrase that makes me smile.  ”Cute” to me is almost like adorable. “You’re worth adoring.” “Chin up.” 

After a long week, what I often want is someone to cook with, curl up to a movie with, and give me a soft place to land, even if it’s only temporary. Someone who will call me cute as hell and kiss my forehead.  Isn’t that what we all want all the time though?  To be heard and valued by ourselves and those around us?

If someone could tell me I’m cute as hell it would drastically change the outcome of my week.
