“But then I realised, why not make a promise to myself? A reminder to always love myself before loving anyone else.

“When I love someone I give them every part of my heart, I treat them with kindness, love, respect, loyalty and empathy, but when it comes to myself, I struggle to find a positive thing to say and I struggle to love myself.”

The influencer went on to say that she has now made a “promise” to herself when she looks at her new ring.
