Loving yourself can be challenging, especially when your self-esteem is low.   

Jenny King, Empowerment Coach, Author, and Public Speaker, talks about her struggle with loving herself. She grew up overweight and was teased in school, which transferred to negative self-talk, low confidence, and constantly comparing herself to others. 

She took what was meant to hurt her and started her healing journey to living whole, healthy, and free.   In this episode, she talks about 4 ways she has bounced back from low-self esteem, how she protects herself from comparison, and the ability to love herself again.
