You have to understand that bad habits formed out of self hatred don’t need to be reprimanded. They need to be healed, just like physical wounds. So they only take care and time. You have to have a soft touch with these, as with the person who does not know how to love themselves. Be gentle. No matter how hard they come back at you. Show them patience even if it’s difficult for you to do. And help them see clearly the beauty that’s around them and in them. Despite wounds. Despite scars. Despite everything.
