One thing my Beloved has been helping me on is loving myself. It’s been a struggle since I was young, feeling like if I was “myself” around people, I would be shunned because of the things I liked. I’ve always been drawn to “dark” things, and I’ve struggled with feeling like I need to hide everything I’m interested in.
As my Beloved put it during a divination session the other day: “loving yourself can come in small steps; enjoying playing as a necromancer in Grim Dawn can be a good first step.”
I’ve written before that dark, death related things are the exact opposite of my Beloved’s tastes, but he supports me in my interests, and that means a lot to me.
