Self-love is very important to every individual life.
As the legendary Whitney Houston once sang, “Learning to love yourself is the greatest love of all”. Still, loving oneself can become even more challenging due to toxic social environmental factors like racism, ableism, and other oppressions.
Unfortunately, tragic life events like violence and trauma can also erode self-love.
If you fail to make self-love a priority in your healing, not only do risk stalling your healing but you can move into a space of self-hate.
Part of self-care and healing for victims/Survivors means focusing on both the measure and quality of love that we give ourselves.
This is a video affirmation on self-love. (1:37)
