You owe it to yourself to be at least as kind as you are to other people, as eager to be considerate and as willing to give the benefit of the doubt.
Your better nature is for you as much as it is for the world.
You’re a whole human being, a complex art form that actually breathes and thinks independent thoughts at will. You’re amazing by default, and you’re worth falling in love with even if you can’t always see the point.
Living things in the mirror are worth more than they appear.
Judge yourself on the (many) days you’re a mess and you won’t see much to give a shit about. But, hell, you need to give a shit about yourself even in your shittiest times. That’s the most basic requirement for giving a shit about anyone or anything else.
Hopeless people can’t give hope.
So give yourself your best shot. Take the nurturing you’re willing to give, wrap your arms around yourself and swim in your own love.
Your heart has room for you.
