We all have a lot to work on, Natalie, so you’re not alone! 🙂

I think that feeling of not liking yourself when you strip away everything else originates from not knowing yourself well enough… I’ve felt that way at times in the past and it has always been the thing that pushed me to change myself — to learn to love who I was inside and really take care of myself, at my core.

You’re absolutely right about needing to work on being our own best friend. Once we’ve done that, we also need to nurture that friendship and not neglect ourselves.
