…talk. Yes I would love to travel back in time and talk to this young girl you see here.
I’d tell her only one thing: The secret is very simple: Learn to love yourself.
My dad took this photograph many years ago and I remember making quite a fuss about not wanting to pose for him. I hated strongly disliked being in any photograph, because I felt very awkward. Yet looking at this now, I wish I could have told myself how pretty I was.
Being confident, assertive and brave are qualities I am still learning about today. I’d like to think I could have saved some time had I known how to love and accept myself, just the way I was. Two days after most of the world celebrated Valentine’s Day, I thought it is important to remind ourselves that love begins within each and every one of us.
Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961)
