"Loving one's self is not vanity, but sanity." - it took a long time for me to understand this. Being the only child of working parents and getting bullied at school . For a long time, I have suffered from low a self-esteem and was insecure. I didn’t believe in myself. As I heal from my experiences, slowly but steadily am learning about the art of loving myself. My experiences have taught me that I am a strong person. I am resilient and kind and I deserve to love myself. I realised that only if I am happy with myself, I can make others happy. What I would like to say is, if you are going through something similar, take care of yourself, praise yourself when needed, treat yourself and most importantly love and accept yourself wholeheartedly for who you are. You are unique, beautiful and perfect the way you are , never believe anything else.
