A couple of years ago, I decided I didn't want to feel like crap anymore, so I changed my diet to reduce the painful arthritic inflammation in my body caused by my autoimmune condition, I changed my focus from the things that hurt me to all the things that can help me, I traded harmful habits for healthy ones, and all of that has helped to fuel my spirit in ways I didn't even know were possible.
It was not an overnight process, and has not been an easy road by any means. All of that required making difficult changes that I had been resisting for a very long time, and required being committed to those changes. It even required changing who I put myself around. The only person that could make me do all this was me, and I decided I am worth the effort.
THIS is self love.
