Self-love requires the excavation of your authentic self. Who were you before the pain? Before the heartbreak? Before the trauma and drama? Who were you before you were told what to do, what to think, what to be? What really makes you happy and brings you joy? Who were you before the events of life and your environment shaped you? Did you know you could shape and handcraft your own life? You are not bound by bad experiences. Ask the potter to shape you into the best you, the real you, the authentic you. But, ooo, it’s going to hurt sometimes remembering how happy, joyful, trusting, carefree, full of hope and dreams you use to be. It’s hard coming back to life. You know why? The you, you think you are must die first. Self-love requires you to dig deep, knee deep, get dirty, and to excavate your authentic self. It’s messy. It’s hard work.

These are deep questions, inner work is sometimes painful but it is worth it. In order to thoroughly clean a house we have to get it untidy by rearranging the furniture.
