She has finally said it. Why she so rarely stands up for herself. Why she tells people she is trans instead of just being a girl. Why she doesn't run when someone gets "too close" like those guys last night. She doesn't have love for herself. She doesn't feel like she is worth being loved, even though she should be.

I'm going to get into this more in this chapter, the reasons why, and how we can refute them internally.

But I will say, right now. You should love yourself. I love you. That won't go away. We've all been made with imperfections. We've all done terrible things. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't love yourself. Would you stop loving your best friend if they made a mistake? Or would you love them even more because they need it the most now?
So why wouldn't you give yourself the same?

Of course, it's one thing to remind Annie that she's loved by the family and admired / respected / liked by a whole bunch of others (e.g. the band, her tutees) who don't give a damn about the quirks of her biology, but another thing entirely for Annie to not only understand that, but internalise it and realise that she's worth it.

Still, admitting she doesn't love herself is the first step on the (no doubt very bumpy) road ahead.

What Annie has finally admitted to another person, as shown in Panel 6 ( and maybe because she has now admitted it to herself, and as a result she goes pale when doing so ! ), might be why she acted the way she did in No. 995 "Fetal" and No. 996
"Bottomed Out ".
