Loving yourself when life is going well, is easy. The hard part of self-love, is when you must love yourself when you feel unworthy, down on yourself, with zero self esteem. We want to change ourselves so that we feel worthy of love, so that we feel deserving of love.
We forget somewhere while growing up, that love cannot be tailored or altered to fit us as we would like. Loving yourself through the down periods of life, may be a struggle, but it's worth fighting through. Loving yourself when someone has made you feel inadequate or less than...is where you gain your strength from.
I read something once to the effect of, 'if you 'can find beauty where others see ugliness', then you are a rare gem! Remember on the days you see nothing but ugliness in yourself, that there's more. You are a rare gem.
