And so should you. Love yourself, that is. Although you can love me too if you like, for bonus points. 😉
Seriously though, why is self-love such a hard-won battle? My 5-year old made me sad the other day when she said ‘I don’t like myself’ (she’d tried to do some writing in the car, which hadn’t met her expectations). These patterns of thinking can become part of our blueprints so early on and follow us all the way into adulthood. It’s so important to develop a growth mindset, learn how to build our resilience, and discover how to treat ourselves with compassion.
You are worthy, and you have always been enough. Not because of your achievements or your talents, but just because you are who you are. And you are much more precious and loved than you realise.
