For all have not every gift given unto them; for there are many gifts, and to every man is given a gift by the Spirit of God. —Doctrine and Covenants 46:11
In the end, loving yourself is not about tooting your own horn or conforming to the world’s view of self-esteem. It’s about being who you are–a unique child of God–and knowing that who you are is a good thing. When you understand your eternal worth and you live in a way consistent with your divine heritage, you will gain a lasting self-esteem that is better than anything the world can offer. —Mindy Raye Friedman
