You are 100% lovable.  Always have and always will be.

There is nothing that you need to do different or change to be loved more.

 

Really, this world needs more love.  I know it sounds cliché but it’s true.  If we all could just see each other’s innate worth and lovability, can you imagine what this world would be like?
