To me, unconditional love was something that was practiced outwardly towards others. It was never an inward practice. I can love myself, as long as I don’t have that extra cupcake or as long as I get my tasks done. I can love myself just fine if I stay the course and don’t get pulled into another direction. When this happens, the enemy of self worth, guilt, steps in and tries to consume me with it’s lies. Trying to make me believe that because I failed, that I’m somehow diminished, that I’ve devalued myself in some way. It’s a lie, and I need to realize this. Unconditional love of myself allows me to break free from guilt and shame. It doesn’t excuse my behavior, it allows me to separate my actions from my self worth. It allows me to learn from my failures without judgment.

They have their own story, their own struggles and their own path to walk. Do not rely on someone else for your happiness. Find it in you. Celebrate yourself. Celebrate every achievement, accomplishment, goal that is reached. LOVE not where you are going but where you are and where you have come from.”
Accepting who you are is a better quality then striving for perfection.
"You are imperfect and you are wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging."

”It’s okay to acknowledge that we have feelings that can be bruised and raw. It’s really very okay if we seek out someone to talk with, opening up and exposing ourselves to the redemption that comes through friendship. ”
