This is so true. Why is it that we are able to show compassion and mercy to others, but are so very hard on and unforgiving of ourselves? It can only be due to a lack of self love. Some women are aware of their lack of self-love, and others think they love themselves, but their self talk says otherwise. If you are constantly berating and criticizing yourself, there is work to be done. If you care for yourself last, after everyone else has been served and there is no time or energy left for yourself, there is work to be done.
Self love is a lifetime work in progress, but the first step is being aware there is work to be done:)
