...of Becoming a Lover of Self

How important do you think it is to teach little girls how to love themselves?

Do you think it's ever too late to teach self-love?

Lastly, do you have to be an "accomplished" lover of self in order to teach self-love or can you be working on it, therefore, teaching through your journey?

I watched the video to Lil Wayne's song, "How to Love" today and I've always admired it because it tells part of my story on why I've struggled with self-love. When I first heard this song, my second book, "My Heart Speaks...of Boys and a Girl," (for purchasing inquiries, email me at, was due to be released soon after and I knew right then that "How to Love" by Lil Wayne was going to be the "theme song" for it. So to Lil Wayne, thank you for this song and for having a video to it as well. You've done well by bringing attention to this important issue and it touches me deeply, like to the abyss of my soul where I search for solutions daily. I appreciate your talent.

  1. I remember during the pre-launch, via the FB group, you shared this song. This song does have great lyrics.

    I think it's very important to teach girls how to embrace who they are, for them to understand self-love. As a mother, I believe that teaching self-love comes from my actions, even more than me telling my daughters to have self-love.

    "Too late to teach self-love"... As in self-hate, shame, etc. is present? If so, then I believe healing and coming face-to-face with the ugliness comes first.

    I believe you can be working on your journey to teach others. Usually, it's the actions and evolution that someone else witness, that inspires them to start a self-love journey.


Y'all's comments are overwhelmingly encouraging. I appreciate them very much. They motivate me to continue being myself. Smooches!
