Self Love

People always emphasize about how self love is really important. Although that may be true, self love isn’t always necessarily ‘loving yourself’. There are plenty of factors that prevent us from loving ourselves and changing the ideas we have about loving ourselves such as which is the correct way and which isn’t considered the correct way to build one’s self-esteem.
