What is Self-Love?
Self-love is not something you can just go out and acquire. It's always been there and it never left. It's been waiting for you to deal with the issues and come back home, Self-love is in fact the greatest story you have ever told.

Self-love is having regard for your own well-being and happiness, and being kind to yourself, on purpose, especially during hard times, and also when it's easy. It's taking care of your mental and physical health even though it's hard sometimes. It's about making hard decisions that are best for yourself even if there is an easier option you just have to take that harder route.

Self-love is being gentle with yourself when you don't meet those expectations and people try to put you down, and make you feel like you are not good enough, as long as you feel good about yourself- their thoughts and opinions don't count.

Lastly, Self-love is about respecting your journey instead of hating it or expecting that it should be different.
