I have learned that it all starts within you.
My biggest challenge I had to overcome, is working on my inner self and learning to let go of things that no longer indulge or exist in my life. Loving myself first and just connecting with my inner self is something I still work on today. But I have gained an understanding of it and I have found my tools that I take with me on this self-love journey.
Accept and respect people as they are
Right from birth, I have grown up with the fact that all of us humans are different. Having a father who had a disability has taught me to accept and respect all people as they are. To not see the difference in them, but instead to contribute by helping or making it easier for those who cannot do it themselves. Even if we help with something small, it outweighs doing nothing at all.
”How you love yourself is how you teach others to love you ”.
I never thought about it this way, but through my years I learned that it all starts within you.
