“Self love is not selfish. Self love is actually a very selfless contribution to the world. It releases others from the expectation to manage our emotions through their behavior. It frees us to contribute rather than to take. It transforms our relationships from tools for surviving to laboratories for thriving.” @aaronxrose.
My therapist worked at teaching me skills that I missed getting in childhood because I spent all my time and energy surviving. He introduced me to thriving. I love it now that I am finally getting to the point where I am thriving.
