What we really need more of in the Western world is self-love.
I’m not talking about likes and shares on social media.
I’m not talking about narcissism.
I’m talking about a deep, abiding regard for ourselves that is independent of anything else.
As human beings, we’ve been taught to look for love in external places – mostly work and our relationships. Those areas can bring enormous validation and fulfillment, but even that is not the love I’m talking about.
The love I’m talking about is a love that blooms rain or shine.
The love I’m talking about can exist amidst our greatest failures and imperfections.
The love I’m talking about can still be felt amidst emotions of shame and regret.
The love I’m talking about is rugged and steady – it is a love that can grow in the rockiest of places.
Learning how to have affection for ourselves – in all our imperfections – may be our greatest challenge as human beings.
This video is about recognizing the beauty and preciousness of your life, and cherishing it.
The book I’m reading is On The Night You Were Born by Nancy Tillman.
