Self-Love (Day 42)

“The fact that someone else loves you doesn’t rescue you from the project of loving yourself.”
—  Sahaj Kohli

I found this quote while browsing Tumblr, and it sort of resonated (I had to share). Loving yourself is definitely one of the hurdles you are faced with when beginning adulthood (some adults still struggle with it). I have friends who are miserable until they have some sort of significant other (I used to be this way). Coming into autumn, I am incredibly happy and excited about my life. Some people feel this way about spring but I find myself the most content during fall. I think because of university, I have reversed seasonal melancholy; the summer makes me sad, and the colder months make me happy. But anyways, I’m happy about my life right now because I am happy with myself as I am- solitary in a sense. It took a while to get to this point, but now that I am, I can focus on myself fully- recovery and all. Loving yourself is indeed a project, and I am completely immersed in it (I hope that you are too).
