For most of us, love is something we show other people but something that we often times forget to show ourselves. This can sometimes lead to us our own worth as we focus all our love and energy on others. I believe strongly that you cannot love someone if you don’t love yourself. Which is why it is important to love and appreciate yourself no matter what you look like or what stage you are in in life. Because you are special, phenomenal and a unique creature sent from heaven to make a difference in the world.
The first step to fulfillment is to know and honor you for who you are. Stand firm for what you believe in because who you are and what you are will attract people who are meant to be in your life. The way you treat yourself is the reflection of how others will treat you. Which is why we are being advised to respect ourselves all the times.
You are what you do, what you say and what you think. And holding on to negative experiences is the same as giving those people who had wronged you the power to do it again. The more you focus on it, it automatically become’s your weakness. And another reason to not love yourself.
So the next time you think there is no one to befriend, befriend yourself. If there is no one to love you then love yourself. And if there is no one to appreciate you please do not hesitate to appreciate yourself. Because whenever there is nobody to turn to you should be able to turn to yourself!
