I've just gotten to the point where I'm sick and tired of putting myself down and I believe that everything happens and everyone comes into your life for a reason. I beat my head against a wall for 5-1/2 years wondering what possible reason there was to "deserve" this relationship but now I think I see that it's because I'm learning self-acceptance and to care for myself. After years of being married (to another man), raising kids, and hating my body (even when I was slim), I think this guy's here to help me learn that I really am okay, no matter what anyone else thinks.
Do you really believe "think this guy's here to help me learn that I really am okay, no matter what anyone else thinks"? Maybe I'm reading what you wrote wrong.
