I am tired of the constant message that you need to love yourself before others can love you. That you are not deserving of love just because circumstances in your life have brought you to a place of self hate.
Self-love and self-care are important, you need to takecare of yourself always. However healing from the scars of your past should not be a prerequisite for love.
For many Self-love is a never ending journey you shouldn’t be deprived of love and respect from others just because you are learning to love yourself.
Your Journey of loving the self is about you and you alone. You can be broken and still love another fully. You can be shattered and still be worthy of a love that whole.
