to love your body, to love yourself.

Love yourself first, the best advice I ever received. It was at the time I learned to please myself, worry about my needs at that time, and of course, learn to love myself that my husband came into my life. I was able to give him the love I've always wanted to give, but I had to love myself first :)
Internal Acceptance Movement
Patience Hodgson, lead singer of the Australian band The Grates, grew up with a large, rare port wine stain birthmark, otherwise known as Klippel Trenaway Sydrome, covering half of her upper body. “I love my birthmark’s spectrum of colour. When I’m warm it’s a kind of red-purple, like the colour of some plums and when I’m cold it’s a vivid, almost neon blue. I also like how it’s a kind of protective barrier protecting me against non-accepting and unthoughtful people.”
