Self-love is something I find, in many different conversations, that most women don't have! They believe they can't love themselves because they don't “fit” what society tells us women should look like – thin and beautiful. So it's not surprising the diet industry is a $70+ billion-dollar market! 🙄
That's a story for a different day, though.
Today, I'm chatting with special guest Martina Wall who used to suffer from self-hate and had this to say:
“I looked in the mirror one day after I was close to that kind of goal that I had in my mind and I still hated myself just as much as I did a hundred pounds heavier. And that's when I realized that something had to change…”
I too have suffered from self-hate.
So that brings me to the question…
Self-Love: Can It Be Taught?
Absolutely! 100%! Both Martina and I have gone through our own journeys of self-hate to self-love.
And that's why I wanted to chat with Martina about self-love because it's such an important topic and something we're both so passionate about helping other women with – loving their imperfectly perfect selves.
