Treat yourself like you would a best friend. Treat yourself like you would a sister or brother. Treat yourself like you would your future son or daughter. You wouldn’t want them to feel like they’re not enough. You wouldn’t want them to crumble to their knees in tears at the sight of their own reflection. You wouldn’t want them to suffer in silence.
Treat yourself like you’re a person who deserves love and care because that’s what you are.
