About Me

In 2015, I suffered from a minor depression while I was pregnant with my daughter. At the time, I was a master’s graduate, living in a one-bedroom apartment and in a toxic relationship.

I hated the reality that I was bringing my daughter into a world that I did not prepare to have her in.  

I learned so much about myself during that life-transition, but when my daughter was born, she showed me my strength. My lack of self-love allowed me to make countless decisions that have led me to be an unwed mother, who is financially strained with a Master’s Degree. I am growing stronger during everyday of this journey because of Gods grace and the support from family, friends and my blogger tribe, but it’s not always a beautiful ride.

There is pain in my self-love.

Starting this blog has allowed me to reveal my truth, share my story, and help myself and other women feel more confident, beautiful, proud, and empowered to be a woman. I no longer view my choices as mistakes and offer this safe-space to you where I will share my experiences to help every woman fall in love with their life.

Why I Became a Self-love Coach

I believe that my daughter, my family and friends; that every college girl, cis-gender woman, mother, and every transgender woman should know the value of self-love. Most importantly, I looked at my life 3 years ago and decided that I give myself the gift of self-love as well, because I deserve it.

Self-love is about directing love, not hate, directly to the heart and pouring that love on to everyone around you.

I can admit that 3 years ago, I did not love myself. Many are afraid to admit it. Transparency was the foundation for my self-love journey and it led me directly to The Path of Self-love.

I believe in the power that self-love brings to the heart, and all that Christine Arylo has built with The Path of Self-love. She has established a community of lovers and beloveds who know their worth and do not settle for less than their heart and soul desires. That is the power of self-love and that is the gift that I want to give every woman that I connect with.
