Loving someone is easy, but sometimes, loving yourself is such a task. Most of the time, people tend to forget how to love themselves.
Love is such a powerful word, but so does self-love. However, some people confuse self-love with self-centered, narcissism and the like.

It is always about making yourself happy in a more positive way.
