Self-love is a direct reflection of the happiness you seek within yourself. I didn't always possess it, but I discovered this beautiful sensation in 2013 after undergoing some serious mind, body, and soul-searching. Discovering and cherishing self-love is vital for others as well. There is no better feeling than being comfortable in your own skin without any fears, insecurities, or hatred toward yourself.
I believe that any community will benefit from the upsurge in positive energy that transpires when all its members learn to love themselves wholeheartedly. My journey to self-love began with accepting and moving past my first experience with colorism. I was seven years old when my older sister told me that I was dark, crusty, and had nappy hair. My two siblings and I are joined through our father but not our mother, even though we were raised in the same household.
