Self-Love can be something that can take some time, especially with Social Media giving us a false sense of ideals/reality at times.
Loving yourself isn’t narcissistic or cocky. Self-Love is about loving who YOU are in your own skin through your flaws and all.
I used to have this high standard of perfection for myself. I am a perfectionist in general. If It didn’t fit the mold I intend, then I would be upset, throw it away, or critique myself even more.
Then I went through a traumatic experience of randomly being diagnosed with two rare tumors that are part of a deadly disease. It took that experience to change my whole perspective.
