I have been struggling for years to love myself.

Frances,

I’m right there with you in this struggle. And I don’t think your experience of thinking you loved yourself only to realize that you didn’t is all that uncommon.

Because I’m no expert on self-love, I’m not sure how valuable my words are, but I hope you’ll be gentle with yourself as you keep moving forward. The world can be rough, but one of the few things we can control is how we treat ourselves.

Like what you read? Give Charlie Scaturro a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
