Most of my life I’ve been insecure and strongly disliked myself. As a teenager and young adult I would often find myself trying to be something I wasn’t. I think this is one of the reasons I suffered from depression most of my life. I often found myself looking for love in all the wrong places and always felt the need to be loved by other people. The problem with that is most people don’t know how to love and I’d end up disappointed. Now that I love myself I am happy and no longer feel the desire to be loved by others. As a result I take much better care of myself emotionally, spiritually and physically. Love yourself!
