My name is Mackenzie, I am a U.S. Army veteran and Public Health graduate student from Upstate NY. I have always struggled with the idea of self-love. Many of us interpret self-love as self absorbent and vanity. Why has it become the norm for us to hate ourselves? Because of my deep rooted self-hate I have found myself in and out of eating disorder facilities, off and on again in destructive relationships, and in dark depressions that seem to have no end. I have decided to begin a journey to whatever self-love may be, so I may finally be at peace with myself. I hope some of my experiences inspire you to begin your journey to self-love, or may be an added insight for you to continue your journey.
God bless and Godspeed.
