Self Love

We’re building a community that encourages self love! Be unapologetically you. Be who you want, wear what you want. Because WHAT YOU THINK OF YOURSELF IS A LOT MORE IMPORTANT THAN WHAT OTHERS THINK OF YOU
As many psychology studies attest, self love and compassion are key for mental health and well being, keeping depression and anxiety at bay. Below are ways you can practice self love and also find help.
