Self-Esteem Is Not Conditional
Everyone deserves to have it
Like stocks, or any other investment you make
You have to invest self-esteem
It goes up and down, it gets knocked around
But you have to invest in yourself, and
Everyone deserves to have self-esteem
There are not conditions in which you can have self-esteem and others that you can’t
Fat people don’t deserve less self-esteem
Than someone who is thin.
Is all I’m talking about
I just wish people wouldn’t attack others
For their differences, when oftentimes
Difference is where we overcompensate
And develop strengths.
My life-long battle with my weight
Has made me healthier, more disciplined
And more aware of health care issues than the average bear
And I love that about myself–
Why is that so hard to hear?
