Learning to love yourself means embracing your imperfections & those oh-so precious quirks; choosing joy on the toughest of days, and allowing yourself to be freed from the past mistakes, guilt or shame you keep tucked in your back pocket.
It means extending grace & forgiveness towards yourself, growing from your failures instead of letting them control you, permitting your heart to be vulnerable and respecting yourself enough to walk away from the toxicity in your life that keeps dragging you back to where you started.
It might not always be a walk in the park, & some days you will want to give up, but I promise you one thing: the healthy you will be indescribably thankful in the end!
Loving yourself is one of the most important life lessons you can learn, not just because it allows you to be unashamed of who YOU were created to be, but it also allows you to love OTHERS to your fullest extent.
