Nayyirah Waheed on loving ourselves

“If someone does not want me, it is not the end of the world. But if I do not want me, the world is nothing but endings.”

Nayyirah Waheed

Yes, yes, yes. The core of therapy is about coming home to ourselves, and to wanting, loving and appreciating ourselves (and therefore having that to offer to others and to the world as well). Loving embodied presence, in possession of our wholehearted ‘yes’ and our clear ‘no’. And that can be a long road for some of us….

Not certain if this is from this book….but there will be many wonderful words, whether or no….
