Loving and Respecting Ourselves

Althea’s message:
I choose this song because I think it sends an important message about loving and respecting ourselves. Mary Piper wrote in her book Reviving Ophelia about how many young girls start out with a lot of great ideas and ambitions but often times become consumed and sometimes obsessed with obtaining what society and the media tell them is beautiful and acceptable. I think it’s important to realize that before we can advocate for the rights of others we need to learn to respect and advocate for ourselves.
