Now this is something a herpes forum should be talking about. Learning to love ourselves unconditionally! I just saw an incredibly inspiring youtube video called “Dove Real Beauty Sketches” that nearly brought me to tears.As women, we are so hard on ourselves and shockingly only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. We are the only one’s who can change this. We MUST learn to love ourselves, even our most vulnerable selves.
Women with herpes all to often begin to view themselves as dirty, ugly women. This is so far from the TRUTH! Let us not forget that herpes is only as skin infection, much like eczema or poison ivy. Would you view yourself and your self worth any differently if you had these skin conditions? We need to put herpes in its place!
You are still a radiant, beautiful woman. Know it, own it and be it. Don’t let herpes rob you of your self confidence and self esteem. You have the power to overcome the emotional barriers that herpes brings!!!!!! If you have not done so already, you should read the book Live, Love and Thrive with Herpes: A Holistic Guide For Women. It will teach you how to love yourself and how to overcome your diagnosis of herpes.
