MFTP Episode 11: Go Love Yourself - Eff Perfect


Self-love is un-fucking-conditional.
It doesn’t depend on how much you weigh or how much money you’re bringing in or how many friends you have on Facebook.
It’s unconditional.
— Ashley
Self-love is generative.
Love creates love.
Every time you love yourself, you’re creating more loving energy to give to yourself and others.
— Jenna
