“Learning to love yourself is a lesson no one ever taught us.
They didn’t tell us how to deal with all the ugly scars that only we can see and how to close our minds to the wicked whispers that make us wish we could shed our skin like a snake, just to feel renewed for a few moments.
But inside, trapping on your ribcage, is a heart that loves you so immeasurably. And little by little, heartbeat by heartbeat, it’s asking you to love yourself. They only taught us to be deaf to this plea.”
