"But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you"
Matthew 5:44

About Us
LoveThyEnemy is an Anti-Bullying Campaign fighting the biggest enemy in a person's life: their own mind. The mind that tells them they are not good, beautiful, intelligent, strong, capable, athletic, or kind enough. It is up to us to fight against those lies and overcome the insecurities we are ashamed to expose. Before we can go on loving everyone else...we must learn to love ourselves. 

Here at LoveThyEnemy we encourage and support you to unmask your fears and flaws in order to rebuild a healthy mind. We hope that our stories we share will inspire you to create your own testimonials on how you overcame the adversity of letting your insecurities control and abuse your life. 

We invite you to join us on our journey to defeat the self-inflicted pain caused by our own minds and to open ourselves up to the reality of just how amazing we all are. We all are special and different in our own ways and we must learn to accept and embrace those qualities we are all blessed with. We thank you for taking your time to learn more about our campaign. We wish to see you help us continue on this path to happiness and love. 

Hello my name is Gracie Ehemann
"Stop being so hard on yourself" is a phrase I have been told at least once a day since I can remember. I am a perfectionist. No matter what I do, who I am, or what I intend on accomplishing...it has never been good enough. But who has the power to determine that? Me. That is how this campaign started. Me telling myself I am not capable of doing great things. Me realizing I was lying to myself. Me learning to love myself. And finally, me aspiring to prove to others that they should do the same.

    The only way I've been able to find true peace in my life is by loving myself. Showing yourself love comes in so many different ways. I love helping others, it brings me so much joy. That is one way I show love to myself. Doing the things that make you happy help a lot, as well as learning that your flaws aren't a definition of who you are. I learned a long time ago that I didn't like who I was, so I figured out what I was doing wrong and I worked to fix it. It might take effort, but it's worth it because I'm the happiest I've ever been.

    I love myself because I have learned over the past year what I want to do in life and what my passion is. I realized that trying to fit in and be something I am not was not giving making me happy. I was truly happy being myself and I learned that through service work. I became passionate after going on a service trip and have done over 200 hours of service since then. I realized there is more to life than being a football state champion and started reevaluating my goals. I overcame trying to be someone that I am not. I am proud that this campaign is conveying the important messages like, you shouldn't ever change who you are to get other people to like you.

    As I was growing up I would always hear girls say "did you see what she's wearing" or "oh my gosh she has a perfect body, why can't I look like that?!" I would constantly listen to girls I knew freaking out about embarrassing themselves. I soon realized that I didn't want to let myself be this way and I decided that I was going to speak what was on my mind and in my heart and be myself no matter how others reacted. What I figured out was that by doing this I was able to find people just like me who didn't want to let others define them and their happiness. You can only be happy if you are happy with yourself. No one has the ability to make you feel less about yourself unless you let them.
