“When we fulfill our function, which is to truly love ourselves and share love with others, then true happiness sets in.” Gabrielle Bernstein
If I’m perfectly honest, I don’t love all parts of myself. I’m judgmental about myself and others. I’m overweight and can’t stand the way my arms look right now. I’m not actually lazy, but sometimes I say that I am when I haven’t done something, usually because that something isn’t a priority for me. Drives me nuts that I call myself lazy.
For me, deep self love is a journey. It includes affirmations and movement, acceptance and compassion (for myself). It means looking at others and appreciating them, flaws and all, and then looking at myself and doing the same. It means recognizing where I feel the need to be perfect and letting that go.
