“The biggest thing for me was self love… I didn’t know how I felt about myself and now I do. I’m Ok, I feel really good about myself… my body, my flaws. I’m perfect… my boyfriend is perfect. You’re perfect My dad is perfect. My mom who is broken and abusive is perfect – I still have boundaries and won’t have a relationship with her, but I feel no judgement or sadness associated with those thoughts anymore.
I never felt that way before, I always judged. I was a harsh judge of myself and of others and it caused me great suffering.”
