Love is not weak, but indomitable. If you want self-love, be of service to others. Love can only be kept once it is given away.
You want self-esteem? Do things that are esteemable. You want self-worth? Take part in worthy acts.

“Leo the lion, Shere Khan the tiger and Baloo the bear were found together as cubs during a police raid of a drug baron’s home in Atlanta. When the young trio moved to Noah’s Ark rescue center in Locust Grove, Ga., zookeepers decided to keep them together, and they all still live and play in their very own habitat. Visitors can watch the 1,000-pound bear, 350-pound lion and 350-pound tiger cuddle, lounge and wrestle together, and zoo Co-Founder Jama Hedgecoth says the animals are oblivious to the fact that they aren’t natural companions.”
forever reblog, love, omg that last line.
If animals can ignore the differences that are so innate in their instincts, then how is it that humans, with all our intellectual prowess, cannot see past difference and realize that we are all natural companions.
Humanity needs a psychic shift. When we are able to not use the same logic that brings us to wars that we use to try to make peace, we must stop relying on our thinking. We have forgotten that we belong to each other.
The educated and wise have been taught caution and reflection. To absorb this mentality too much would leave our society with planes abandoned by pilots.
