Loving yourself seems to be the hardest task. In today’s world of social media, shallow outside beauty is being put on a pedestal, which makes self-love more important than ever. But I know it’s hard. Sometimes, we simply don’t believe in ourselves. Other times, we’re too occupied with doubt and self-hatred, that we don’t have the energy or mental capacity to give ourselves a break.
