One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life: that word is love. — Sophocles

    I love this

    Thanks for the reminder — not so much to love myself, because I think that I’m far too selfish and self-centered already — but to act in a consistently loving way towards my husband, whose love really does free me from the weight and pain of life. What a blessing he is for me, every day of my life. Thanks, BH, for the reminder today.

  • James Radloff

    God created me to be such a gift to the world. May I focus on this giftedness instead of my weaknesses. Then it will not be so difficult to love myself.
