TIFFANY HADDISH on learning how to love yourself – a feature from ALLURE Magazine
“When I hit 25, I read a book by Louis Hay, You Can Heal Your Life. It taught me about self-love, about looking in the mirror, in your eyeballs. This book was saying, just look into your eyeballs and tell yourself that you love and approve of yourself. The first time I did it, I cried really hard because I don’t think I really did love or approve of myself. And as I took on this practice and did it on a regular basis, it was like my life started to slowly change into what I thought I wanted. I really started to recognize my actual beauty and slowly became confident. I had a certain level of confidence that was deniable. And now I’ve nurtured myself like I wish my mother would have all those years ago. I just turned 21 for the 19th time. One of my goals was always to walk into a room and project happiness, elevate the room within 10-foot radius of where my body is there’s joy and happiness around there.
