Start loving yourself regardless of whatever "flaws" you may think you have.
For instance: the true hallmark of a real diamond are inclusions or "flaws," (which is just a negative way of saying "characteristics") and without those flaws that diamond would just appear fake and transparent much like an imitation diamond; however like a real, honest-to-goodness, from-the-earth diamond the brilliance of your character will outshine any major flaws and all anyone will ever see is something beautiful. <3
Unless you get thrown under a microscope. Then your flaws become glaringly obvious.
So maybe we should avoid scrutinizing the people we love because really - even if you know the flaws are still there - that doesn't change the fact that it's still a diamond.
Until Next Time,
