Not being loved, but the adjective. The ability to be loved. The ability to look at yourself in the mirror and see a person who not only can be loved, but deserves love.
Someone who deserves to be cared about, someone who deserves to be thought about. Someone who deserves someone who cares about them.
Loveable is not just an ability, but a truth. A core truth, that everyone has when they are born.
But for some, it is stamped out before they even leave childhood.
