13 Steps to Achieving Total Self-Love
I am watching my beautiful eighteen-year-old daughter begin to navigate life as a young adult. I am projecting like mad, reliving my own traumas, and hoping she will be more successful, more lucky, more savvy by a long shot than I ever was. And mostly, I find myself on the sidelines silently urging her okay, not always silently to choose herself. I want her, and I want you, and I want myself to choose me. This is not selfish. Repeat: this is not selfish. Choosing yourself is the only way to thrive in the world. You can only know yourself and your own reactions, so this is the only truly accurate compass you will ever have.
