Very true. If we don’t love ourselves and don’t value what makes and shapes us and our beliefs, then why should anybody else? Like a little pot plant where we are the seed, the root, the stem growing upwards, we are nourished in the earth (love) surrounding us so we push upwards, growing and striving towards the light. Our self-love continues to nourish and encourage us so we sprout leaves and branches representing the people, the situations, the choices we make, in life. This all stemmed from, and also only became possible, by the nourishment of earth/love for ourselves. How powerful are we?
