The dictionary defines self love as …….
- regard for one’s own well-being and happiness.
- conceit; vanity.
Although this is what is deemed as the general definition, I strongly believe that the sex, age and reality (background) of an individual defines that meaning. Especially for my generation. So as the curious George character I am I had to find out what exactly society believes it to be.
The project started off as an introduction for a biblical based talk I was doing on self love/worth/confidence. As I recorded my friend’s giving their definitions my heart & mind started to wonder. Everyone seemed to have a different understanding. Is the difference really because of race, sex, culture, religion, upbringing? Hearing all these views I couldn’t find it in myself to only leave it as a 10 second intro. I felt a need to explore this topic more, to broaden its horizon. Planning my last trip to Spain I had the idea to go out into the city and ask willing individuals to give their take. It’s out of my character but, in my opinion, the cause was worth it!

With love, from a creative heart xx
