My last post also made me think about this secret from a while ago:
I am not bipolar or schizophrenic or what people traditionally deem "mentally ill," but I am ridden with all sorts of anxiety. I don't think it's true that you can't love someone until you love yourself, but you certainly can't be with someone else until you love yourself.
Instead of wallowing, I need to channel the energy into making changes so that I can love and live with myself. I don't deserve a lot of things, but I at least deserve that.
