…I tell my friends this all the time:
I treat myself as though I am my own child.
I would never say anything to myself that I wouldn’t say to my child. (To clarify: I don’t have a child, husband, or boyfriend.)
–Doubt, hurtful words, disrespect, victimizing phrases–
when it comes to me dealing with me, none of ^that^ exists.
So to accept that from anybody else…
Well, it would be unacceptable.
Love, me (more).
