Self love matters.
It matters more than anything else. If you can accept yourself finally for who you are, then you can allow yourself to unlock your gifts and give those to the world.
You can love others to the deepest capacities to which you love yourself.
But also you can see your flaws not as these terrible things that destroy you and that you should be ashamed of, but opportunities for you to grow and learn and love yourself and who you are even more.
So self love matters so much because it allows you to heal inside…and it also gives the rest of the world the opportunity to experience you just as you are.
