Dear Bitter Butch,
How does one reconcile loving oneself exactly as one is right now and knowing that one needs to do some fairly serious self-work?
– One, not with everything
Oh oh oh oh oh you ARE a Dear One. My heart goes out to you — because there is so much pain and confusion packed into this one short question, but also because I’ve asked myself this so many times. How do I love myself and fix myself, too?
Ain’t that the question?
Or maybe it isn’t.
