Episode 9: Learning to Love Yourself, Honouring Your Desires, & Why Self-Love is Integral for a Life Well Lived

In this episode, I wanted to concentrate on the idea of self-love…but not in the usual, fluffy, bullshit way that we’ve all known online. Self-love is 1% of the time long baths after a hard day and a face mask – but the other 99% of the time, it’s hard fucking work. It’s showing up and staying when you don’t want to, it’s quitting when you’d rather not, and it’s pushing through the difficulties because the future benefit outweighs the present discomfort. Self-love is political. It’s doing the work.

Episode 9: Learning to Love Yourself, Honouring Your Desires, & Why Self-Love is Integral for a Life Well Lived She Uncensored

Self-Love has been bounded around social media for the last few years and tends to focus on the basic care – eating well, having a bath, and face masks. All well and good but, in this week's episode, we explore the idea that self-love is also doing the hard work of confronting yourself, of learning when to quit, learning when to grit your teeth and carry on, and how it can mean a temporary moment of pain for a future of freedom. Self-love doesn't feel like love all the time.  Please feel free to continue the conversation over on my instagram, @sheuncensored.
