When you find yourself drowning in self-hate, you have to remind yourself that you weren’t born feeling this way. That at some point in your journey, some person or experience sent you the message that there was something wrong with who you are, and you internalized those messages and took them on as your truth. But that hate isn’t yours to carry, and those judgements aren’t about you. And in the same way that you learned to think badly about yourself, you can learn to think new, self-loving and accepting thoughts . You can learn to challenge those beliefs, take away their power, and reclaim your own.”

Even, and probably most especially, when it seems least deserved.”
