Calming Breath

Law

The importance of self-love means understanding our ability to say NO. It means that in our hands we hold the final decision. Because in self-care, and creating healthy boundaries, we are the Judge and Jury. We are law. You loved yourself enough to let them go, so love yourself enough to heal Internalize Feel Learn…
