Thank you for this beautiful and honest story. I relate to these lines (and most of your other ones, too) so much. This particular part had me almost in tears though. I find myself being so hard on myself and it is difficult to find that acceptance and then love of self. It’s a journey I’m finally embarking on finally at the age of 41. So, thank you for showing me so concretely how this can be done. ❤
