“You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy.”
Ladies, I want you to look in the mirror and say out loud “I Love You”. Don’t just say it to say it, mean it! For some of us this may be a hard task, but I dare you to try it. It may be hard, but I’m telling you ladies if you start doing this every morning you will feel that much better about yourself.
So many of us are willing to love others, more than we love ourselves, but we fail to realize that we need to love ourselves first. In relationships this tends to happen. We focus more on our significant other than we do ourselves. We have to learn and understand that we need to come first in our relationships. In order to make him happy, we need to be happy first.
Also, many of us ladies tend to settle because we don’t think we deserve better. We need to understand that we deserve the best! We should never settle; it’s okay to have a list of what we want in our mate. I’m not saying have this ridiculous list of expectations that no man can meet, but have the important deal breakers and must haves.
Love yourself enough to know what is healthy and what isn’t healthy for you in your ideal relationship. I know too many of us get stuck in these abusive relationships because we don’t love ourselves enough to leave the person who is causing us this pain and hurt. We don’t realize that we deserve better, and no matter what our friends say we don’t get it. Why do we have to wait until we are broken to start loving ourselves?
So this is something I want all of us ladies to do each morning, while we are “putting our faces on” or doing our hair. Look in the mirror and say something nice about yourself and mean it. It could be anything from “I Love You” to “You’re Beautiful” and tell me that doesn’t lift up your spirits.
