innana88 on self-love and self-acceptance

Nobody, no matter how hard they try, can ever love you enough to compensate for the lack of love you have for yourself.

It is so easy to hang your worth on the fact that someone, especially if s/he is an incredible human being, loves all that you cannot.

But if that love is the certificate you think you need to believe that you are okay, then you won't really be able to accept who you are until that is out of the way and you are brought to the door of yourself to have a reckoning with all the parts of yourself that you believe are unworthy of your love.

That doesn't mean that the love someone else had for you was in vain.

That's what sometimes brings you to that door.

And you carry it with you for ever.
