Self-Love: Regard for one's own well-being and happiness.
How do the words self and love have a hyphen between them when they're meant to be the same?
A hyphen that some would say serves as a way to separate the two.
I say that the hyphen's there as a bridge.
A bridge between the self and love.
Yes we already are capable of loving as people
But what type of love?
What type of love is needed for us to hold it within ourselves,
The type of love that's needed is one that's pure and honest.
One that doesn't have to be defined but able to be understood.
