How does Joy live through love? “There is an idea of selfishness or ego attached to the idea of loving yourself. But if you are truly operating from a place of love, the person you can and should love the most is you. Because if you do that, you will not step into spaces of fear or hate or toxicity so easily.”

"If I don't ask for your opinion, I don't value your criticism." - Joy Taylor
