Forget Self-Help, Try Self-Love

Dear Radical Readers,

Quite frankly, everyone has bad days.  And everyone has people telling them they’re not good enough, they’re not doing it right, they love the wrong people, they need to change, they need to lose weight or change their hair, they’re not ladylike (or manly enough), they’re going to end up alone, whatever.  And to all of those people I say, Shut the heck up and let the rest of us live our lives!

Just do you. And while you’re at it, check out some of the songs, books, articles, and pictures we’ve compiled about loving yourself and doing your own thing.

Hugs, the Radical Writers
