"The truth is that if we really are going to love ourselves truly, to accept totally our beings and way of being unfolding every day, then we have to do away entirely with what society says about us. We have to venture into the wild. Into unknown territory. We must rebel against the labels and confines given us. And define for ourselves what beauty is, what quality is and worthiness too. We must throw away the shackles of social conformity. Care nothing for what people around us think of the dancing life in our eyes that can only be felt in such decision -making. Self - love is an act of revolution. It is an act of empowerement. Of declaring the reign of magic in our superficial world. We are realigning energies. Putting those that give out commands back in their place and respectfully taking our lives back. And that is why it feels like a fight sometimes. It is incredibly frightening at the beginning but only because we have got used to the prison. But we were born free and that is why we make the journey home. Our souls know the way and that is why the ache. Don't numb yourself to the ache sweet soul, it is the way to your freedom."
