Beautiful people don’t just “still exist”—they are everywhere. You can even be one to yourself (one of the best ways to be good to others). To help you out a bit, I’m sharing some love-based things to tell yourself that your heart probably needs to hear (I know mine does).
In the most loving way, there are things I am not sorry for and conscious self-loving decisions I feel compelled to share with you today. Maybe you will find a few things you don’t have to be sorry for too.
What would it look like to be there for yourself? It might look like showing up for the heartache with a little more love than you’re used to giving yourself.
