Editor’s Note: This cross-posted video uses the term “lame” to express dissatisfaction. While we strongly appreciate the sentiments of self-love and compassion in this video, we also recognize that “lame” is an ableist term that has hurt many people. We don’t support the use of such language, apologize in advance for any harm caused, and look forward to the eradication of such language from our collective conscious.
Also, while Lilly expresses how important it is for us to love ourselves and treat ourselves well, some of her words may be interpreted as implying that others treating you poorly is a direct result of not loving yourself enough – which isn’t true. You only have control over how you treat you – and we like this video because it expresses that you should treat yourself well.
