Recent Thoughts About Self-Love

recent thoughts about self-love

Until a week or so ago my self-love levels were extremely low. I felt like things were changing. I got back into that place where I disliked loads of things about myself. Telling myself I looked ugly in that outfit or that I’m not good enough so I chose to hide away. I’ve learnt that …

As I’m writing this, its Sunday 14th January. Can we all just take a moment to think about how fast 2018 is going already? Some might think, it’s only 13 days into the New Year. However, to me, Christmas feels so long ago. It’s as if it just popped by, said hello, then went within …
