What's the deal with Self Love? (read in Seinfeld's voice)

Teaching self love to the kids here at Child Youth First is a wake up call for myself. I forgot about self love in my world. I always worry about everyone else. Self care is different than self love. I've gotten better with my own self care throughout the years, but often see much self destruction. I'm a confident person on the outside. and majority of the time that is true. But there are times that darkness sets in. Self doubt, low self esteem and most of all depression. Being bi-polar, that last part can really crushes the soul. I'm normally manic, obvious much, I know. But the depression is when I hole up in my bed and want nothing to do with the world.
Being here in Nepal, with these children and young adults, who come from under privileged families, has shown me an appreciation of my life and things I have. I feel a more minimal approach on all the material things. Maybe this is the source I need for self love. Self love ins't about my outer image, it's about the contentment of my inner soul. I'm seeing that light at the end of the tunnel, and Dammit, I can't wait to come through the other side.
