Commitment to Care

Photography by Bryan Farley

When asked what is the greatest ill in the world, a great teacher answered: self hatred. A bell rang in my body, Yes, that’s what it is. Oh, that’s what I’ve been doing. I’m teaching young people to love themselves. Yes. And then I realized quickly was that actually I couldn’t teach them that. I had to learn it. I had to do it. I had to be it. I had to love myself. Dang, that’s a longer journey! That’s like a lifetime journey for me
