Be really alright with the skin you're in! Because if you are not then it will show and others will know. Be loving to yourself as well as to others; when we do loving things, when we give loving thoughts, do loving acts, all these things come back to us. When I was told that I was HIV positive I thought my world would end that there was no chance in hell of me ever finding love, let alone getting a husband. So with that thought I began to prepare for a life alone which meant that I had to learn how to nurture myself, love myself, pamper myself. In doing those things I found out that I was one hell of a catch!
