I think that in forming, making the decision to start caring about myself, and not just communicating the caring personality through loving other people cause that's what I did all the time; nobody could say I wasn't a loving person cause I gave so much love to so many people. But while I was doing that, I needed to do that in order to feel love for myself. Now I made a decision that I'm feeling it for myself, I am feeling joy in my little victories, I'm feeling joy in watching the smiles that I can put on someone's face who is struggling with this, you know, for the first time. It's not just about loving someone, it's reciprocal, it's a reciprocal thing. And I think I've learned that part of my giving nature, that I don't just t give, and I take. Taking is a very loving thing to do, not taking is very rejecting thing to do. I think I must have known that at some level philosophically, but I didn't know experientially, and now I know it as my own experience.
