“All other love is extinguished by self-love; beneficence, humanity, justice, philosophy, sink under it.” -Epicurus
I am not sure why I started with the most difficult of all affirmations to begin my book, and surely I am among many who read the words: “I love myself,” but can’t quite feel them.
I suppose this is my first affirmation, because in many ways, it is the ground of any and all others. It is a complex act, even though it seems like it should be simple. Our capacity for self love is an accurate barometer of our ability to receive all other love. For affirmations to really work, they have to be experienced from the inside out, which is to say that the recognition of what feels true resonates in our body, specifically around our heart, if the impact is going to be felt.
