Many Loves

Document Type



It seems we are always looking for love, many times in all the wrong places. We look to other people, material things or, social status to give us love. In writing this piece I explored the many aspects of love, external and internal, which touch a person. Love seems to be as important as food and water for one to thrive, and somewhat easier to give than receive. I have personally struggled with self-love and continue to remind myself that I am a unique, complicated person that contributes positively to society. As I stated in the piece, To love one's self takes so much effort and pain, time, learning, and acceptance. Maybe we are the artist and the work in progress!
