Last year, around this time; I wrote a post on how to love yourself .
Today, after a long struggle and journey towards learning to love myself (and still working towards it), I am vowing to lean into….more.
Loving myself more.
Healing myself more.
I’m trying to find the ways to love myself more. In these last two years of living on this Earth, I’ve realized that just loving is not enough. You have to be willing to do more for yourself before you give into anyone or anything else. When you pour your soul and yourself into everything else, you lose vital pieces of your essence. I had to remember that without me, I cannot love, I cannot heal, I cannot feel and I cannot do; for myself or others.
Personal responsibility plays a role in giving yourself the decency and respect of caring for the tender parts of yourself before you lean into someone else. Don’t ever make the mistake of putting someone else before you, when they don’t show or acknowledge it. And never love anyone more than you love yourself; and if you do, love yourself MORE before anything else.
I know I’ll never make the same mistake twice. 🖤
