A complete self love accepts what we may consider flaws or weaknesses. In April I fully accepted that I have Depression; it is one facet of me, it is not All of me. When I finally went public via a blog post about my challenges it was amazing the love and light that poured in from others. So many people began to share Their struggles and challenges and together we realized none of us are alone. We have each other to talk to, lean on and love. It opened up deeper conversations. It also made me feel a bit more free. As a Storyteller, I agree 100% that we are the Stories we share, tell, read, and discover. We can choose which stories we tell. And the Stories can help us to grow & learn. May we all love all ourselves; even the dark bits. HUGS from my heart to yours.

I, too, have so struggled with depression as I have aged. Younger family members are suffering difficult problems, and I want to help, but I feel so inadequate.
