My therapist looks just like Master Tenzin. Every time I sit down for one of our sessions, I imagine him with Airbender tattoos.
"Man I can tell you after decades of self-hatred, it’s vital you love yourself. Loving yourself isn’t selfishness. That’s a power vibe. Selfishness is where you take without satisfaction: time, money, affection. You place yourself as apex in selfishness and everyone must pour into you. That’s not self-love. Self-love is where you recognize the being you are has the right to live and grow. The being you are has the right to think and feel and move within the world. A bird doesn’t question it’s flight and it doesn’t ask permission. It just throws itself and hopefully the wingspan takes over. You love yourself first, it’s like recognizing other people are out there, that everyone has the right to feel strong and be active in life. Well how do I love myself? Start small and build. Put your shoulders back a little. Breath from your gut a little. Eyes on horizon instead of your feet. Build the physicality of loving yourself. And just, get into it."
