We all come in different packages, stories, styles, and everything else. Yet, the one thing that unites us is our passion for our art. J Free, is a twenty-seven year old writer from Sacramento with raw, unfiltered, and unforgettable content that is Good Enough?!.

I would be remiss if I did not kick Black History Month off with someone that is not only influential to me, but influential to the culture in more ways than one.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines self-love as, "an appreciation of one's own worth or virtue." People express their love of self in many ways. This is not to be confused with being self-absorbed, vanity, or narcissism. Self-love is not selfish. Loving yourself for who you truly are is a necessity for a healthy life.
