Loving yourself is a journey
This statement acknowledges that self-love is a process that takes time and effort. It encourages individuals to be patient and kind to themselves as they work towards developing a healthy relationship with themselves.
Self love and perfection are not the same thing. Perfection means without flaws. Flaws are what make us uniquely individual, loving who we are at every stage in our lives. We will make mistakes, self love allows us to correct our faux pas, not beating ourselves down because we are human. Mistakes are the greatest teachers we would ever have.
