LOVING YOURSELF
is a big ask.

To some it may as well be a mountain covered in treacherous ice.
A journey too far, so overwhelming,
that finding the start point can often seem impossible.

Begin by showing yourself some slack every now and again,
move into a healthy mutual respect
and then maybe gravitate to treating yourself as you would a good friend.

Laugh at your own jokes,
see the life well-lived in each tummy roll
and be forgiving when you’ve made mistakes,
or behaved as every human does, imperfectly.

It’s the least you would give to another,
so it shouldn’t be too far a stretch.

Loving yourself is a big ask, so simply start with kindness,
the rest will come.
