Many of us move through life not knowing the simple pleasures of love. We think we know but then as time wears on and we move forward we find out that we were wrong. We attach ourselves to people who are no good for us and we know it! We let them suck the life out of us and we know it! We either have or develop low self esteem and allow people to do and say whatever they like to us.
Why? Why do you allow others to take your energy, love and prosperity and pass it off as their own? Do you love yourself? Okay….Okay….that should have been my first question!!
First things first…..Do you love yourself? Really think about that question because that is the most important question that you will ever hear as an adult. I’m not talking about being conceited or vain but I’m talking about having a healthy love for yourself. If you don’t love yourself, you don’t know what love is. If you don’t love yourself, you don’t know how to show someone to love you!
The things that you do for yourself, that person that you love or “say” you love should do that AND more. Love isn’t perfect but the person that you love should treat you like you are a diamond! Why? Because you are! You are unique! You are deserving of all the love in the world and should be treated as such.
So first things first…..Do you love yourself?
