I believe that every trauma, every challenge, and every pain we go through is to teach us to truly love ourselves unconditionally.
And when we learn to love ourselves, then we can know how to love others.
We struggle to be kind to others because we are hard on ourselves.
And that translates to being hard on others because we are not familiar with kindness.
We struggle to be compassionate with others because we judge ourselves.
And that translates to judging others because we are not familiar with compassion and understanding.
We are all on a journey to discover love.
We must love ourselves first, so we can love one another.
