Love myself… But how?

[Letter from Guidance Counsellor Kisa Sohma:]  The most important thing it to love yourself, to discover your good sides and to love yourself. If you don’t love yourself, no one else would love you, either. Right?

[Yuki Sohma:] To love myself… But how? How do I discover good sides of myself? I only know my ugly side, and that’s why I hate myself. That’s not it… That isn’t it. I get to love myself for the first time when someone else tells me I love you. By being accepted and being liked by someone. Finally, I get to forgive myself a little. I get to like myself a little. That’s how I feel.
