After realizing the reason you barely like yourself was cause of superficial things, how do you start to love yourself, so that in the future others will love you back?

My therapist told me something important: you don't have to love yourself, but you're allowed to. It's not about loving yourself all the time and being okay with every single aspect of yourself - it's about opening a positive relationship with yourself. There can be things about yourself that you want to change. There can be things about yourself that you will never like. The important thing, though, is that you give yourself permission to like and even love these things because they are a part of you. And as Doctor Seuss says, there's no one in the universe you-er than you.1
