Physical beauty is a raindrop where spiritual beauty is an ocean. In a culture that capitalizes on low self-esteem, we are instructed to hate ourselves.

It is a radical, courageous, and necessary thing to practice self-love, vulnerability, and active resistance to self-deprecating and self-denying rhetoric and practices.
