For a long time I did not love myself. And it affected EVERY aspect of my life.
It affected the successes (and mostly failures) of all my relationships – romantic and other – it destroyed my confidence and pretty much made me cower back from life. I simply existed; like a ghost not being part of the living.
When you live in fear of everything you do and the consequences of your existence, you do not truly live.
Every chance of happiness, I destroyed for being undeserving.
